I am reasonably dim when it comes to computer components, and have tried my best scanning through the internet to get the answers I need but to no avail.
So I was wondering if anyone with a good computer knowledge could help out a novice to pick between the following graphics cards and help me identify if a CPU my friend gave me is better than my current one, so here goes:
For info my current Mobo is an ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A32-MVP DELUXE Rev 1.xx
I'm stuck between the following cards either:
Asus HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card
Inno3D GTX 460 SE Green Edition 1GB GDDR5 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card.
Is it possible to crossfire the HD 5670? If so I would definately be buying two of those, however one of my friends informed me that even with crossfiring it still wouldn't exceed the GTX 460, hence my confusion
Or if there is a card which maybe you would think is better and would recommend then I'm open for suggestions. I don't really want to exceed the £130.00 level if I can help it, and both of these cards fall nicely into my budget.
The current CPU I have is:
3.20 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core
256 kilobyte primary memory cache
2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
Multi-core (2 total)
My friend has found a unused AMD Athlon 64 X2 7550 2.5 GHz Socket AM2+ 2MB Cache which he bought a few months back and forgot about it.
Unfortunately as I have mentioned I don't really have a great deal of knowledge when it comes to computers so it may as well be written in Arabic as I don't understand any of it
So any advice is greatly appreciated.
