A friend of mine has this GPU with a Intel Core Duo E6650 2.33, can he run Overwatch smoothly? This page says it "fails" especially for the CPU.

this card should be able to play modern games at high settings, as long as they don't need DirectX 11.

If you ask me I think your GPU will perform better in newer games since it supports newer technologies, while this one could be better in DX9 games or not even there, driver for 550Ti are being constantly released. As you can see this card has 124.8GB/sec bandwidth.

Nope, no point in buying Radeon HD 4000 GPU nowadays, and it is even hard to find these on stores, due to being dated. What's your budget, you should get a newer card :D

Don't know what this guy is talking about its like saying there's no point in buying an old car? I bought mine used for about $70 bucks off line for my semi-budget build. My opinion? The bang for buck ratio is outstanding, as long as its a good one they are screamers and are very overclock-able.

That's not quite what I exactly meant, DX10.1 just won't do for many upcoming games. Sure raw power is attractive to buyers considering the prices though

I know it seems like a lie but my card is putting down cards that are supposed to be 50% higher then mine when it come to fps. Food for thought

no it doesn't.. you've got a great cpu. Yes a core i3 or i5 would give you even better performance but coupled with 4GB of ram you should be fine ;)
