HD5970 for playing Soduku and Solitaire

My friend who's a techie says I should get this card because it's future proof but he said I could play my fav windows puzzle games on it. Wouldn't this be too powerful for my needs though? He said if they ever release updates for such games my system would easily handle them.

Ahahaha. Yeah, you don't even need a dedicated graphics card for that, if your computer has an internal one itll do fine.

Puzzle games are becoming more and more demanding. I'm afraid your friend is right and you will be best off purchasing this card to prevent any lag in new editions of solitaire.

games like sudoku and solitaire should be fine, but watch out for Facebook games such as farmville - these are very graphics intensive and can slow your computer down a ton - even though they are pretty terrible games.

A real techie would know that 'future-proof' is a term marketing folk use and in the real world it means diddly-squat. As Keithoms has said, an on-board GPU found on budget motherboards will suffice for Windows games such as Minesweeper lol
.
If you have to purchase a standalone card because the motherboard doesn't have an on-board GPU then just purchase a cheap DirectX 11 compatible card. A HD5450 for example, even this is overkill for Solitaire though lol.
.
Personally I would be worried about this techie you know, a HD5970 costs £500, if he knows you only play 2d games then.. Why is he telling you get something that is clearly completely overkill. I suggest you find someone else to take advice from in the future, or post on here instead ;)

Maybe the Solitaire and Sudoku games will get graphical updates where they are in 3d............................. And Crysis is playing in the background.

EDIT: Decided my idea needed a visual element to it, so I made this 2 minute job:

I've solved your puzzle above.
Great challenge thanks.
If the OP can't even spell the name of his favourite games then what hope is there.

I do enjoy the off game of pinball too.

Glad you enjoyed it, I aim to please.

I've only just noticed that spelling mistake.

You'll be needing two cards then: One for the ball, one for the table.
You can get higher scores if you overclock and watercool them too!
