It's weird that the tech could not install the video card, usually that's done in 4 steps:

1) uninstalling the current drivers (by it's uninstaller, then cleaning the leftovers)
2) removing the card from its slot
3) installing the new card on the same slot the old one was
4) boot into windows and install the new drivers.

I'd say that tech is not a tech hehe...

For a non gamer that's what i'd suggest, really
Dear Punkster,
The first step was not done and that must have been the reason why the G-card was not installable! The techiee is a very nice young man and has been associated with my computers since more than 14 years! His knowledge of English is zero as he never was sent to school(he's a muslim) , as is customary among those folks! Now he rues the lack of english education!

I'll try and see whether the HD5770 is available and if available will buy it pronto! My tech guy assembles PCs and i am surprised how he could forget the first step!
Now, thanks to you, i know the reason & more importantly know what to do before installing the new card!

Thanks mate,

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...

i end up removing deleting/uninstalling Eset Smart security as it really damaged my PC hugely (i got 4 pcs with 2 of them with that product and with windows 7 it damaged a lot like my bios) so i'm going to use microsoft security essentials since its anti virus spyware malware and malwarebytes...
