Alright thanks ahh I was trying to avoid buying a PSU so I can buy a motherboard -.- oh well. Think I could do good enough on crysis with this card + my processor & with 2GB DDR2-5300 & 400watt power supply?

I deleted the review with the 4670 and crysis because it didn't say what CPU was used in the testing. Crysis is a graphicaly demanding game. So from what I've been able to find about the E6600 and 2gb and Crysis and the reviews with the 4670 would lead me to guess you would achived a satisfactory game play. Looked like quite a few high settings and some middle to high. All depends on playing the game and trying different settings to find the best settings to achive what your happy with in terms of FPS and eye candy. IMO. Fabe

It is generally not a good idea to skimp on the PSU. I would not run that on 300W and if you get a new PSU anyhow, go for e.g. 550W from a reputable make (e.g. Antec). The price difference is minimal.

Original 'Crysis' game

I have 4670 AGP card - requires 430watt min "otherwise serious damage may occur to your card" (on box)

You are going to tax your 4670 card to the max with Crysis so def. need good power supply!

I have a Barton 3000+ cpu, 2gb memory @ 400

Crysis runs fine at all settings on 'medium' except 'physics' (set to 'low' due to to CPU taxation!)
4x anti aliasing - looks great on 26" monitor!

Set it to run "Vista service pack1 compatability" - on Win7 to 'minimise' the sound crackling problems which seem to happen to everybody!

I don't use this setup for online serious gaming or anything like that!

alright thanks guys

Might be getting the 4670 and in need of a power supply. I've got 100 to spend & the 4670 i'm buying is 59.99, but I still dont know what power supply to get :\

& i've got question on RAM. I've only got 1GB RAM installed, came with the PC, and I'm going to buy another stick. Does it have to be exactly the same as the current RAM installed, or can it be any make, as long as it's PC2-5300?

If it were exactly the same stick, that would be preferable. If it is another make, it should at least have the same specifications. If not, you risk to slow down your system.

Yeah I know that it can slow it down. According to my friend, who thinks he is a 'Genius' at computing, he said that if I want to get another RAM stick, it must be same make, serial number, model number and specs. I don't really believe him because he's so full of himself. I know the specs (DDR2-667 & PC2-5300) must be the same, but other than that is he right?
