ATI Radeon HD5570 with new 23" LG IPS Monitor - Upgrade card?

I don't wish to waste money but am thinking perhaps it's time to change my Video card. At present I have the Radeon HD5570 1GB DDR3 which is quite a few years old, it's still working fine but I have just bought an LG23MP65HQ IPS monitor.
I have connected the monitors VGA to the DVI output on the card, there is no DVI connection on the monitor only VGA and HDMI.
Would it be an improvement to use the HDMI cable connections instead of the DVI/VGA? The manual says that the HDMI is for Digital Video and Audio but it also gives a warning 'that it can cause compatibility problem.'

If you think an upgrade is in order any suggestions? All the manufacturers reckon theirs is best so it's not easy to select one. My budget is around 50-100.

Thanks

Alan.

If you have HDMI ports on the card and monitor I'd suggest using an HDMI cable, you'll be find with that. What do you use your system for? Any gaming?

Thanks, I use it mostly for data; Excel/Word/Emails, some photo work on posters. I do, when I am in the mood kill a few Aliens or battle away at some gaming, Quake/Halfllife/Bio-Shock/Call of Duty etc.

I will get an HDMI lead and see if it makes an improvement.

IF I decided to upgrade anyway is there a type/range more suited to my requirements you can suggest?

Regards
Alan.

With the quality of your CPU and PSU it would just be down to how much you wanted to spend really. Let me know a budget and I'll gladly recommend you a card. The 5570 isn't brilliant for gaming if the truth be told.

This one. Mate, for the price this card's an absolute bargain. It'll give you a massive difference in performance from what you've got.

Many thanks for the suggestion, had a quick peek and it looks great but will read up on it tomorrow, the 5570 has done sterling service but I know it is not a great card but was all I could afford at the time.

Regards and thanks again.

You're welcome mate. The 750ti really is a fantastic card for the price, and while I don't doubt for a second that your 5570 has been a loyal servant for you you would certainly notice a huge difference. Plus it's the latest architecture from nVidia so you'd be set for quite a while.

Let us know what you decide.

Dusted off my credit card and have ordered the new card as you have recommended . I did a Google search and looked on some websites and they gave some very positive comments, and as you say the price is very good for the specs (Not that I knew what most of them meant! )

Thanks for your input and I will let you know how I get on.

Regards
Alan.

You're welcome Alan, if you need any help installing the card just give me a shout. Be sure to uninstall your ATI card via Device Manager before you physically remove it, that will remove the drivers for the card so you'll be good to go when you install your 750ti.
