Another week, another video card launched by ATI it seems.

This time around we have the HD 5570, which is the middle step between the entry-level HD 5450 and the mid-range HD 5670.

Seems like it's going to be a bit of a niche card with it being caught inbetween cheap entry level cards and slighty more expensive mid range cards. But still looks quite good for the price.

Im just concerned, I really want to buy this card but i have a 250W power supply.

Article mentions that it is ideal for it, but i fear my PSU will be fried lol

Can someone tell me if I can installe it or not?

Plus, i've been seeing many 5570 and all are bigger than the oneshown in the article. Is that for laptops or something?

The one in the picture is for a normal PC (PCI-e slot). What kind of 250w PSU do you have? Is it a factory one from a pre-built PC?

According to those charts, and I'm assuming the measurements are taken from the wall (I believe that's how the "kill-o-watt" works), it appears to be a low power consumption video card. If it suits your gaming needs, it should be fine.

From my experience, your PC will freeze or shutdown while gaming because the video card couldn't keep a stable supply of power. Then you know it's time to upgrade the PSU.

ANYTHING would suit my needs lol

Becausemy computer is an hp pavillion p6200la and has Intel Express Chipset and it sux big time.

I wont be really using the card at its max settings, i just want starcraft to run properly, with the intel graphics it runs very slow, specially with many units on screen at the same time like fastest map ever.

I guess that if set it up at a medium level it should be fine, plus I only have 1 harddrive and the dvd room connected, nothing else but that (and the fans of course)

I forgot to mention that i'm in Mexico, and here is difficult to find good deals.

This is the one i want to buy, and my concern about the size is because all 5570 that i've seen here are bigger, take a look

Are you sure your rig is even capable of having an aftermarket GPU installed?

Sounds like you've got a bit of a crappy rig eh? You take what you can get/afford though, I suppose.

Good point. You will need a PCI-e slot to use any new video card.

I just bought the HIS IceQ 5 H577QT1GD Radeon HD 5770 Turbo 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 on Newegg for $179 bucks and it is awesome. I tried 3dMark Vantage and got good scores so thought I would try the Ubigine Heaven Benchamark also kicked butt just started playing Chrysis Warhead Farcry 2 and S.T.A.L.k.E.R Call Of Pripryat and I can't seem to find a game to throw at it that it can't handle.I would recommend it to anyone who wants to step up there game just a FYI hope you got a nice case cause this card is big and it takes up two PCIe slots but the nice thing is it has a grill that will push hot air out so keeps the case nice and cool.This is my rig

AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition Agena 2.6GHz Quad Core Processor
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
