    Any graphics card should run fine on 32 and 64bit os,mine runs fine on both,check my vids in YouTube link on Sig if you want to see how it performs,the gtx460 1gb is another good choice if you want to spend a bit more

    Thumbs up Re: GFX and 64/32 bit OS

    The 5770 was king of the hill in its price range for quite a while and should be a great gaming card. I think that the 5770 originally sold for $200 (USD) when it first came out. If your motherboard supports Crossfire setups you can upgrade with a second video card for a significant performance boost in the future. With a 5770 Crossfire setup, the performance should be close to or slightly better than the 6850. The only drawback to a single 5770 is that you'll have to use somewhat lower (i.e. medium) gaming settings and "moderate" screen resolutions with modern games.

    If you still have similar issues with your new card (gray picture and out of focus), borrow a video cable and see if this solves the problem. Wazza300 is happy with his 5770 in his i7-920/EX58 system. Your new 5770 will be be big step up from your old 8800GT.

    Let us know how you like your new 5770.

    **EDIT** Don't forget to remove the Nvidia drivers before you install your new 5770.

    its a widetech v2.2 atx 650w passive pfc.

    i wont start looking at them properly until the card has built up some credit,but from what ive learned from profjim it will be a seasonic or corsair up to about 550w.

    Glad to help out and hear that you're happy with the new graphics card.

    from post #7:
    I just did a quick check on Widetech power supplies. From http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/935552, it looks like your psu is a cheap "generic" psu. I've seen a fair number of psu reviews at reputable sites, where the cheapy power supplies:

    * don't put out their "rated" power
    * have poor voltage regulation
    * have high ripple (electrical noise) that is just below or even higher than the specified limits
    * some units burn or explode when they try to provide higher wattage. even when the output is below their "rated" power output
    I did some quick price shopping at staticICE - Compare Prices - Australia - Price comparison for gadgets and computer hardware and found the following prices (Australian $) for some Seasonic made power supplies:
    • Antec TP-550 psu: $105 - $140
    • Antec TP-650 psu: $119 - $150
    • Corsair 650-TX psu: $114 - $139 (the newest "V2" models are even better than the older TX models)
    • Seasonic 620 watt psu: $125 - $131 (S12II and M12II models)
    • XFX 650 watt psu: $125 - $165
    A 650 watt psu now will "future proof" your system if you want to updrade your system in several years or if you want to run a dual video card CrossfireX setup. A mid-range dual video card system can draw up to 400 watts, total sytem power usage. Your motherboard must support CrossfireX for you to be able to use two video cards.
    • The Corsair CX and VX models are their lowest level power supplies.
    • The Antec TP series are the "True Power" models. Don't buy the older TP models, make sure that you're looking at the "True Power New" models. I have the TP-750 True Power New model.
    • The original XFX models are somewhat better than the newest models. I don't recall if the newest model is still made by Seasonic.
