Hello!
I recently got a GT220, but one of my friends is selling his 5670(used 1 year) and I kinda want to return my GT220 and get the 5670.

I got:
Intel Pentium 4 631 HT with 3.00 GHz.
2 Gb of Ram.

I want to know if I can play the following games with the 5670 on my spec and with wich graphics setup:

1. Skyrim (Low - Medium - High)
2. DayZ(ARMA 2: CO) (Low - Medium - High)
3. Killing Floor (Low - Medium - High)
4. WoW Cataclysm (Low - Medium - High)
5. Modern Warfare 1 (Low - Medium - High)
6. Modern Warfare 2 (Low - Medium - High)
7. Minecraft (Low - Medium - High)
8. DOTA 2 (Low - Medium - High)
9. NFS: Pro Street (Low - Medium - High)
10. NFS: Undercover (Low - Medium - High)

And one other thing, will the 5670 work on a 450W PSU?("No Name" One... Made in China crap :/)

Thank You!
 
1. maybe low
2. maybe low
3. unsure
4. medium/high
5. medium
6. medium/high
7. medium/high
8. Low
9. Low
10. Low

I would not trust it. The suggesting wattage for that series of cards is 400 watts however its hard to say whether or not your power supply will output the labeled wattage.

Well... I am playing those games on my GT220 on Low-Med with a good FPS rate... Wouldnt the 5670 do better on DOTA2, NFS & Skyrim?
 
A 5670 should do okay with DOTA 2

Skyrim it can play just not at very good settings

Need for Speed
I'm not familiar too much with those titles but I would imagine low settings as they are a little more graphical

my old HD2400 could play thoose games in medium

and im sure a hd 5670 can play these in high



 
Ah I wouldn't even think about spending any money on a new gpu with the rest of your specs looking like that. I would probably upgrade to an a10 if your budget is tight or save up enough for a pentium G + 7750.

I doubt skyrim and DayZ will even start on a pentium 4.

You will NOT be able to play arma II DayZ with good framerates. Arma II requires pretty good harware. Sadly Pentium 4 machines are getting really outdated. I just upgraded trashed my P4 machine because I wasn't able to play the newer games.
 
I would say its a safe bet that your Pentium 4 is holding you back quite a bit your processor was released in January of 2006, 7 years ago. As well as the ram newer cards are going to need more ram to support them. However I don't need to dead horse here I think you know your system is outdated.
