HD 5750 Bottleneck [+Longevity]

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
To start off, know that I'm on a tight budget, and really the following is the best I can squeeze out.

I've been unknowingly suffering with a 6100 Integrated (seriously I never bothered with why my PC sucked so badly) for years, now I can't take it any more, and following some enlightenment, I decided to update to a XFX HD 5750 which handily comes with a deal on a much needed BFG 550W.
(a big part of it is the DX11 longevity)

I'm running the AMD Athlon x2 Dual Core (1.9GHz), and for very good reasons I suspect at least some or much bottlenecking will ensue. (my 4 gigs ram being fine)
Question for you guys, am I right?

And less importantly, how much of a liver do you think the 5750 will be? (screw 5770's bare advantage) Like all games now as far as I know it can max out, but for the next 2 years or so, how will it survive against the multiplying technology advancements?

Please, have pity on the poor man.

err... editing... s'an OEM system, non-overclockable, for CPU at least.

Late edit: XFX 5750's being out of stock currently, I think I'll have to go with the 5770. Not that I myself mind, but my dad's wallet is biting.

Run some benchmarks, compare them with online benches, if your really close, dont sweat it, but if your lacking major fps, well i guess nothing lol. But a 5770 doesnt need alot and im sure your dual core can handle it

When I ran an Athlon X2 4000+ at 2.7Ghz, it bottle necked my 8800GTX. When I upgraded to just my E5200 at 3.5Ghz I saw a big difference.

Also fill out your system info BPK, welcome to OCN

Hm, I never thought K8 could bottleneck things that much
I do know that the 3600+ he runs is an AM2 processor so he does have some upgrade options in terms of processor.

BPK: Oh and... guess who welcome to OCN!

Oh I guessed who.
And thanks guys.
I guess a CPU upgrade will have to come later if not soon, but at least, I should notice a big difference compared to what I have now, right?

Getting home in 4 hours, the card and psu should have arrived, so I guess I'll see then. I'll fill out my info after switching out too.

BTW I remembered I've seen a lot of things around the net about the 6100 being a problem to deactivate, even after completely cleaning out all drivers, and I'm hoping that doesn't happen here.

You will see a huge increase in performance. Over the 6100.

Dude, going from onboard to a 5750 will be the very epitome of 'night and day'. You'll be able to run MUCH higher resolutions and gfx quality levels with a 5750 and still have it be playable.

Honestly that proc is a bit on the slow side, but it's really going to depend on the cpu-dependency level of the each individual game how much that lack of power is going to impact your fps. You won't break any benching records with that CPU, but you're still going to get HUGE improvements in 'max playable settings' in everything you play.

Before you install it, just uninstall the drivers for the 6100 (I presume it's the Forceware package). Then power down, restart into the bios, turn off the onboard gfx and switch to PCI-Ex as your first graphics adapter (either or both, depending on your options in bios). Then power off, install the new card, plug the monitor cable into the new card, and restart into Windows. At that point install the latest Catalyst package, restart, and you should be golden.

Some OEM computers won't tell you what key to press to enter the BIOS (to turn off 6100). If thats a problem you should be able to find it in the manual.

Out of stock. Wow. I have to wait a few days.
Strange though, I just noticed it says $134.99 in the list of all video cards on the site http://ncix.com/products/index.php?m...=108&po=0&ps=2, but when you go to the card's page it says $149.99. I hope that $15 is still out. 3:

Oh and thanks so far guys.
