Windows 7 64 bit
My Video Card and installing new games


I had 2 questions on installing new games into Win 7 and my video card.

1) I know when you install older games, it helps to run the installation process manually as administrator, make it compatible to XP or Vista, and install to a Games folder rather than Program Files folder. However, is it safe for the new games and games going forward to let the games autoinstall to the standard Program Files folder or is it better to keep on manually running the install to a Games folder, even for 2010-2011 and future games?

2) My video card is ATI Radeon HD 5700. I'm not up on video card tech. generally speaking, is that a half way decent video card that should allow me to play most current and immediate future games, rpgs, action/FPS games, etc?

Thanks for any input!
