    HI there all, i have a question.. i have a spare ddr5 HIS 5770 graphics card i was wondering if i could put it in my little dual core machine (old trusty) ,the card can run dvi or hdmi or is this overkill for such a small machine being a dualcore and all its an acer veriton 5700g 2 gig of ram,ps its running win 7 (dunno how i jammed it in there but i did), and if its possible would i need any hdmi drivers to help the board cope or is it just impossible all together? would be cool if i could turn it into a tiny freak machine :) ,hopefully i havnt left anything out ,cheers

    No real issue running a DDR5 memory equipped card in a dual core system, the card may not perform to it's full potential but it'll still work, depending on which processor you have it may not be limited at all, the Radeon HD 5770 is a great card but by no means a monster. The stock Acer power supply won't be able to handle it properly but if you have a 720 watt PSU then that would do it.

    AMD has drivers that will install all the drivers needed for the card: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
