Hi all.

Just building a new pc in custom case. After a new graphics card.

Motherboard is Intel DQ965GF
1x PCI Express x16 connector

Is a M-ATX motherboard and case. But can handle cards up to 13 (35cm) long.

Silent cooler would be nice but if it has fan im not to worryed.

Up to $200.

Thanks

mmm.

Little more info. I have got a 32" screen That I will be running on HD.
Power supply is a Corsair 450watt.

Hardware running off PSU.
1x Motherboard
1x Intel daul core CPU
4x 1gb sticks of ram
1x Asus sata dvd drive
2x 2.5" 160gb wd black sata hdd's (In a Stardon 3.5" rack unit, powered off floppy drive plug)
2x 3.5" 1tb wd green sata hdds
1x 3.5" usb card reader. (Gets power from usb plug on mobo)
1x wireless card (Pluged into mobo)
1x Sound card (Pluged into mobo)
3x 120mm fans

The only external things that will be plugged into be will be the USB wireless unit for the keyboard/mouse, USB printer, USB external hdd now and again.

Also like to play some games and watch movies and listen to music.

On a budget its a case of best card for the money but what resolution do you plan to run at on that 32" panel?

another point is the 5770 recommends at least a 450w power supply. If you're running hd/full hd resolutions and doing cpu intensive stuff, you might be better going with the 5670 or upping the PSU as well. On that note, if you DID decide to upgrade the PSU you could keep it for future upgrades too :)
