new desktop pc
I'm thinking of getting a new desktop pc but I'm not sure if this HD 5770 graphics card type will work for STO

nvidia's are pretty good, just depends on what else besides your STO gamin that you want yer computer to do.

What ever the graph card at least make sure it has a cool gig dedicated to it. Im in the same boat you prob is the sales pitch i'd have to throw at the wife.........maybe if i get her another 2.5 Crt diamond???..............Thats how i was able to get my life sub...............

Then again the longer you wait (if you can) the better the stuff they put in it. And consider buying directly from the manufacture's web site...lots of free upgrades by doing it this way. You may find something much better than what you had in mind for the same price or cheaper.....;)

i have that card in the 1gb version. it works fine.

it does not like ground gameplay on the highest settings and will crash but i think thats just the dynamic lighting or something, you might not have that trouble. if you take the graphics down one setting then it looks and plays great.

Curious..........know anything that DOES work with Dynamic lighting?

5770 will more than cope with STO.

other stats will vary thanks
