    Thanks again for your reply and good info. As I said before, even though I am not a gamer, I always run to you guys for answers. My MB is a 775Dual-VSTA. I cannot add any more memory but I think I will go with the MSI5670. That should do fine for my setup.

    Thank you so much......

    I can't seem to determine if my MB is compatible with the MSI 5670. As I said, it is an ASRock 775 Dual-Vsta. It does have a PCI-E slot so I think I am going to go ahead and take a chance and order one.

    Thanks again....

    I am having another look, your motherboard may only accept certain cards.

    Assuming this [URL="http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=775Dual-VSTA"]775 DV compatible graphics cards[/URL] is upto date, then you are right, the 5670 wont be compatible. bummer. gonna look over the list for a decent one.

    Allot of the cards on the motherboards compatible list are like trying to find hens teeth. Looking around, i stumbled across this [URL="http://forum.micromart.co.uk/Topic173777-19-4.aspx"]Forum[/URL] talking about this subject, and with a certain BIOS update they are talking about possibly getting an ATI 4850/4870 to work from [URL="http://forums.ocworkbench.com/showthread.php?t=75467"] here[/URL].

    In this [URL="http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/264227-15-4770-asrock-dual-vsta"]Thread[/URL] at the bottom, someone claims to have a 5770 working with this motherboard, with the BIOS listed. So maybe a chance for the 5670.

    Interesting reading, that lastest BIOS update for the motherboard can run ATI 4xxx series, some even get 5xxx to run.
