The card requires a 500w psu with at lease 40a for full load. So, with that I say that you do need to grab a better psu if your going to get the card. Reasoning, you should all ways have head room with a psu. Cap. aging will happen and that psu won't rate to the same specs after that.

But, with that, a 5850 would probably be nice since you do need to get a psu added.. less money and the ability to get a psu in the mix.. Plus the 5850 will is just as good as a 5870.

first please complete your words so we will not have a hard time reading your posts. :
(does this forum have a rule requires you to use complete words?)

Yup, Change you're PSU.
I googled your PSU, Mercury 500W, and it is not a good quality one.(only costs 23$)

Buy a BRANDED powersupply. or it can damage you're 5870(assuming that you will buy one) and other hardwares after using it for sometime.

Well, considering your system, a 5870 would be a waste of card, cash and effort. Even so...

1: Go for the Asus. Haven't looked for performances but the Asus, most of the times, tops the others.

2: Yes, you board supports the card.

3: Since your PSU's site doesn't have any useful info, I'd say a Corsair 500W or higher. You never go wrong with a Corsair.

Again, that card would be overkill for your system. Period.

You're not getting the point.

Your current system (motherboard, processor, etc...) will not be able to let the HD 5870 unleash it's total power. That's why it is overkill.

The PSU you need to choose is of 500 Watts or more, but more importantly, that it can deliver more than 40 Amperes on the +12 Volt rail.

NO DON'T LOOK at how many Watts. LOOK AT THE BRAND.
A Corsair 400W may be better than a Mercury 700W.

Yes, The 5870 would be an overkill. overkill meaning its a waste of you're money as you can get other cards and experience just the same with your system. not over kill meaning you will kill your system. But if you really want a 5870, Branded PSU first.

THE Power Supply is the most important Component for any Computer.

Bad PSU = Damaged Hardware
PSU Not Enough = Damaged Hardware/No Power
NO PSU = No Power

Right, before we go down to any details, I would like to say that its easier to convey your message through proper English rather than internet language.

You are looking at powerful graphics cards, but I would imagine your processor wouldn't bottleneck the cards. I suspect that you have this motherboard, with a PCIe X16 slot, so your mobo will be able to support whatever graphics card you buy.

Where are you going to shop? I think your shop prices should influence what you buy in the end, because sometimes people artificially jack up the prices of high end goods, making them insanely pricey. You mentioned that you have a 17" CRT monitor, what resolution are you running it at?

Went to google your PSU, and found nothing, which brings me to a conclusion that it is a crappy one. This will be the first component I will upgrade over the rest. Get a 500-600W quality power supply, preferably Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, OCZ, Enermax, etc. Look it up and we will be able to recommend you with something.

Graphics card, I think you should be looking at something along the lines of 5770 and 5850 rather than the 5870 Matrix. The Matrix is only useful for people who have nothing better to spend their money on, and I can see that you need to upgrade a few components.

Right, what I will spend the $500 on:
Power supply, should be round about $70
22" LCD monitor. It should cost around $200
Leaving about $230 to spend on a graphics card (the only one I can see fitting in this budget is the 5770, maybe 5850)

Also, you're running a 17'' CRT monitor @ (what I suppose) 1024x768 resolution. So I guess, visually you won't get a much better game experience with the new card...unless it's a game like crysis.

Still, overkill anyways.

EDIT: Too many people replying at the same time!! Can't focus my answers, lol. :roll:

Wow 17" CRT Monitor, just like the old penitium 4 days. :wtf:

You should get at least a 19" inch LCD Monitor.

hell even a 8800GT can run crysis in good settings and framerate with 1024 x 768 resolution.

It doesn't even give details about how powerful the 12C rail is, so I discounted that site.
judging from the price. 20$, Its crap. haha

You should have already mentioned that... :shadedshu

Thats good but why would you buy a CPU Cooler? Will you OC? if not then don't.

For the Monitor. Get a Samsung or LG whichever has better features and ports and has good native res.
