    I think i5 and quad core performs same. Besides buying an i7 will be witless. Cause i7 is too much expensive and doesnt worth the money. So ur cpu is decent enough and worth ur money. But i still prefer quad core esp. Q9 series. Now the fact is ur ram and if u r a gamer then gpu. Windows 7 is powerful os and take much ram. Gpu is ok for casual gamer. U need 2 gb ram more to get full advantage. Nd u told that speed is same. the fact is this is the time of dual core or core2 duo cpu s. Many softs and games are esp. optimize for those cpu s. Though they are quite slow. So u have to wait atleast 5 or 6 months to see the difference between core 2 duo and i5 or quad core. But dont be dissapointed ur cpu is future proof.

    Quad Core = any cpu with 4 cores. With that said, i5 is a quad core cpu. If you were comparing i5 with the C2Q, then yes there is a noticeable difference, especially in synthetic benchmarks. The overall system performance should be much more snappier and responsive. 5 or 6 months? I mean seriously, quad cores have been out for years now!

    I don't see any reason for that rig to be unable to handle Windows 7. As Lynas said, it'd be best if you added an extra 2GB RAM and did a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit along with the latest drivers. That should solve the problem.

    even with a C2D i am pretty happy to handle windows 7.
    my question and point lies in that-
    YOU HAVE A BOUGHT COPY OF WINDOWS 7?
    Downloaded copies are much better.

    2GB is not enough I think. I would also say the same thing, add another 2GB RAM.

    and don't think about using XP/Vista as you've bought a DX11 GPU. Win7 is your best choice.

    C2D 2.93/2gb ram is more than enough to run win 7! Ami nije amr gf er pc te setup kore dia aschi, and never heard any complaints frm her rather she's more satisfied wid her PC than her Sony Vio laptop!

    She played SIMS 3 with 4770 without any problem =/

    I suspect it has something to do with the copy of windows, not his pc!

    Everyone is missing a simple, I don't know why. :/

    @ hellunder vai, U need to upgrade this 3 things -

    1. At least an ASUS 550W/500W though it's not available atm. Seriously guys, is his PSU good enough for his i5 + 5670 ? this rig needs at least TT TR2 420W even if he game in DX9/10, gaming in DX11 will consume even higher power. And he's using 2000 taka's Delux Original. :/

    2. Add another 2GB DDR3 (or 6GB if u don't want to upgrade for a long time, total will be 8GB DDR3 Dual-Channel) of the same bus.

    3. Install Win7 Ultimate 64-bit (x64)


    Then it'll be a average one (as an i5 rig), coz your GPU will still remain weak for a i5 rig. :mellow:

    ---------- Post added at 17:38 ---------- Previous post was at 17:36 ----------

    @ rumen vai, 4870 + 4GB will be better.

    its a prob with os itself. Not the pc. Chk the drivers and make sure that there is no crappy virus.

    @ rion, I dont see a point y he need an upgrade in PSU/RAM just to RUN Win 7. Read his post twice, he already said "quite good gaming exp"

    XFX Radeon HD 5670 System Requirements

    • PCI Express compliant motherboard with one X16 graphics slot
    • 400 Watt or greater power supply recommended (500 Watt for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
    • Certified power supplies are recommended.
    • Minimum 1GB of system memory
    It dosent even need a pci-e power connector..

    @ hellunder vai, U need to upgrade this 3 things -

    1. At least an ASUS 550W/500W though it's not available atm. Seriously guys, is his PSU good enough for his i5 + 5670 ? this rig needs at least TT TR2 420W even if he game in DX9/10, gaming in DX11 will consume even higher power. And he's using 2000 taka's Delux Original. :/

    2. Add another 2GB DDR3 (or 6GB if u don't want to upgrade for a long time, total will be 8GB DDR3 Dual-Channel) of the same bus.

    3. Install Win7 Ultimate 64-bit (x64)


    Then it'll be a average one (as an i5 rig), coz your GPU will still remain weak for a i5 rig. :mellow:

    @ rumen vai, 4870 + 4GB will be better.
    i haven't played creed II or far cry 2 yet
    will my gpu b damaged for using 400W psu
    when buying frm ucc i asked them several times, they said deluxe will do as this is a low end gpu

    U dont need advice for this. just see what happens if u run ur pc in full load. if ur pc restarts constantly in full load, then yah u need to use good psu or add some more power (Eg. 500W)

    Well, even my 9600GT requires 400w PSU. But, when I game for 1~2 hour, my PC starts to give low fps. Then, I'll have to shut down my PC for about 6 hours (or maybe some less hours) and the I can game in full speed. It's because of my PSU (TT LP 400W) which can't handle my crappy Pentium D 930 3GHz, 2GB DDR2, 1HDD SATA, 1 ODD SATA DVD-RW.

    I've tested in ASUS 500w and even if I game with 6+ Hour, I face no fps drop. I have to agree that if I run any Pentium Dual-Core or Core 2 Duo (but, not Core i3) in my PC, then I won't have any problem in my 400W.

    And, a good 400w (like mine) can even handle a E8600 (at stock) + GTS 250/4850 without any hiccup for a few good years with reserving 50% wattage. But man, 5670 is a DX11 gpu, and power consumption will hugely raise when U'll play in DX11. Plus, he's using a quad which takes much more power than C2D/PDC. So, how can a 400w handle his PC for a few years ?

    Taken from Guru3D -

    Make sure you have some reserves folks. It's not that your PC will consume that much power, it's just that you want to make sure your PSU can deal with the hefty load and will stay stable during your entire gaming experience.

    Nope, ur PC hardwares might not get damaged, but U'll surely get low fps due to your PSU. U may not notice it but your PSU surely can't handle your rig for a long time (~3.5 years). U'll notice it only when u'll compare your PC to another Core i5 750 (Stock), 2GB (if u don't upgrade to 4GB), 5670, Win7 32-bit user with a good PSU (who doesn't have any problem in his PC, like - virus).

    And, u asked UCC ? well, I've also asked them once about the MINIMUM PSU for GTS 250 and I also told them I was in a very limited budget. But, they told me I need AT LEAST THERMALTAKE TR2 550W which will cost 6,800 taka, otherwise I won't be able to run GTS 250 from XFX. I thanked that guys who told me this and cut off the phone. :/ Now, what u want me to listen ?

    I've already answered this question. He won't face restart, but he'll face low fps.


    Read this thread for more discussion (though it's still uncompleted because Mazhar vai still haven't answered my last question ) -

    my question and point lies in that-
    YOU HAVE A BOUGHT COPY OF WINDOWS 7?
    Downloaded copies are much better.
    Why a downloaded copy is better ? :S

    BTW, I'd say, 4GB is the minimum for Win 7/Vista, specially if u game.

    I don't know if his psu enough for his PC or not, but everyone needs a good psu.

    and, of course add another 2GB ram.

    It's better to have 4GB RAM since most recent games (post 2009) will favor/ are favoring the extra RAM, but that does not mean that the more RAM you feed, the more faster responsiveness is you get. It need not be a necessity FOR MOST at the moment, but you can slowly add up one RAM stick later this year (unless you are an avid gamer).

    About the power supply: since it's relatively new (in terms of trust) it's better to go off for a better ASUS/TT power supply (since they are trusted). Your PC will consume power <= 300W at full load (including GPU+CPU+ other peripherals), keeping that in mind your 400W PSU will handle the load, but you can't expect it to bear it all, and perform the same as before after a long time.

    The theoretical (engineering) rate of PSU power degradation is 10% (WATTS) per year. Such performance degradation is less likely to be evident on "quality" brands (Rion stated this too). It's better to have a minimum 550W PSU (it may sound too overkill), but it's gonna be helpful in the long run.

    BTW, using a Quad core cpu doesn't make each, and every experiences lightning fast!
