I recently upgraded to win 7 on a Nforce 2 board and have had a load of prob's (as posted on here) its seems that my old NF2 board can't run Win 7 so I have now treated my self to a new pc (comming for xmas) spec as here;
WIN 7 32 or 64 bit?
Asus M4A78-VM - DDR2 1200x2 780G chipset
AM3 Phenom X2 250 3.0 GHz,
4Gb Corsair Memory DDR2 1066 (2x2Gb)
500GB SATA Hard Drive
Cool Master 500W PSU
Can anyone please recomend a graphics card (pci-e 2) for under £100 that would suit this set up (either ATI or Nvidia) its main use is for internet with the odd games play but its not really intended as a gamming pc.
Thanks for your help, I am not sure how good the on-board graphics are thats why I was thinking of having a pci e card fitted, also as I understand it having a card fitted will free up some of the ram and run a little smoother.
hm.... go for the 5750 as it has dx11 support and is the best for your money right now
and yes things would go a little smoother and 64bit or 32.... its more a preference than anything if you want to use all your ram go with 64 if it doesn't matter then either one
