Unfortunately any significant upgrade for you is going to involve upgrading the power supply as well.

mine has been fine for 3 months now on the same power as it had originally unless mine isn't considered significant, but then, the upgrade from the original card to the one i have now, in terms of improvement, i would consider it a significant upgrade

Need a little help.

Hey Jamey or Douggoud, when you installed the Sapphire HD5570 did you have to disable the onboard nvidia graphics card? I installed mine and it won't recognize the device.

Thanks,

Ryan
