Hi all,

I have a 6 year old system (Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 mb, 1.5GB ram, latest Bios, 400W PSU, PCI-E 16) in which the above graphics card has died. I bought a Sapphire HD 5670 512MB GDDR5 to replace it, but the system doesn't recognise it.

Could anyone suggest less recent card that would replace the 7600GS in the set up I have?

Budget is £60 and I've been looking at ebuyer.

Thanks - but I followed the instructions - which say to install the hw first, then the drivers once the OS comes up.

I should clarify that the problem I'm having is that I don't get any display on the monitor at all, none of the boot sequence output or anything - screen is blank.

The card works as expected in a more recent system I have.
