xfx HD 5570 enables my computer to boot after 20 seconds - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If the problem is with your PSU, here. You can get a solid unit (this one) for $40, and you should. Bad PSUs can harm your system and a nice unit is essential to the health of your rig.

As far as the GPU goes, what XTC said is a perfect suggestion. Those are great for situations like this. And I'm not sure about the performance of either of those cards, I'm not familiar with them. But, if the 6570 will outperform the 5570, I'd pick it up. Just keep in mind that you should pick up a solid PSU in the future, because things could turn ugly if you let that power your card much longer.

Did you have a vid card before?

And yes, I would go with the passive cooling card. I would trust the experts and as long as you dont overclock it, I think youll be fine.
used gt 240 and HD 4650 before but they all worked well also about hd 6570, isn't there a cooler out there which i can hop onto hd 6570 instead of the passive cooling, well i'm talking about future when i would definitely be in need of overclocking this card.

I'm thinking it's most likely your PSU. I'd assume around full load with your specs and the 5770 you're pulling at least 300 watts. If it's the stock power supply that came with the HP, I definitely would think it doesn't have the proper voltage on any rail to power an aftermarket GPU.

I looked again through the website and a HD 5670 is available at the same price as well with dual slot fan and a gddr5 memory which totally blows those two cards apart...but i'm not in a position to spend any $ for PSU...

EDIT: i've actually ran this card just fine on my current PSU but that was 8 months ago, do you guys think i've lost the power of my PSU since then?
