I don't see your motherboard Listed so are you saying you don't have a PCI-e or an AGP slot.just a PCI? I think you must have one or the other and PCI is a typo. Fabe

Sorry about that,i tried a while back find out my motherboard and cant find it,belarc,everest etc wont show it and neither will system information etc

I have 2 pci slots,one is being used for a raid controller and one is free.
Then under that there is a slightly bigger black one which im pretty sure is agp

Not sure I'd recommend the HD 5770 anymore.

Most of them are going for ~$180 now (the Vapor-X edition is $199 on Amazon). Insane.

You could get a HD 4870 for ~$140. Or a HD 4890 for ~$190 bucks. And both of them will perform better than any HD 5770 out there right now (by a significant margin).

For the HD 5770 to stay competitive, it needs to fit in somewhere between the current 4870 and 4850 pricing.

January can't come soon enough.

As it is with the one i have it might aswell not have one,cant even overclock it.
