Low end PC needing a slight GPU upgrade - Looking at 6570

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

Got a PC here with a 8400GS 512MB.

I need to get it to play Anno 1404 @ 1080p. The CPU (and rest of the system) covers the game requirements quite well. So just need a cheap GPU upgrade.

Currently the game is only playable @ 720p (with every setting on lowest/off) with the 8400GS. By playable I mean it gets in the 20 fps. tongue.gif But luckily due to the type of game Anno is, it's very low FPS friendly.

I'm looking at some really cheap upgrade options. I looked at some benches, more specifically ones that run near 1080p.
They ran the benches @ AA set to x2 with AF set to x8 and all the in-game settings are turned up to high.
6570 review - Crysis Warhead

If you look at that one, it runs Crysis Warhead pretty well considering the res and settings. It looks like that is the average FPS of 17. I don't have Warhead, but only the original Crysis. I ran the built in GPU bench @ 1080p, all on high with 2xAA and got 22fps average with my sig rig.

So seems the 6570 is slightly slower than my 8800GT. Concerning Anno 1404, I run everything maxed with no AA on my 8800GT and get 30+ fps. So I'm thinking the 6570 can pull off medium settings easily @ 1080p.

I can get this: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD6570 HM 1GB DDR3 128-bit for really cheap.

Anyone have experience with the 6570? Should it run Anno 1404 @ 1080p with medium settings? thumb.gif

Most important question. thumb.gif

If your budget is only about $60 (the price of a 6570), then that's probably the best card you can get (unless you'd consider buying used). If you can bump your budget higher, you can get much better cards. wink.gif

Well, this thread is more a "will the 6570 do what I need it to do?", than a "I have $xx budget, what can I buy". tongue.gif I need to go as cheap as possible to just get Anno 1404 to run at say 30+fps @ 1080p. The 6450 looks quite useless, and this is the next step up. But to answer then yes, like onoz says. Let's say $60 budget. tongue.gif Though if I convert the cost of the card here in SA directly to $, it's about $80. lol

Hopefully someone with this card will stop by and comment on the performance, but so far this looks like the way to go.
