Default Radeon 5770 HD

Graphic card update I'm at 15.3 now auto update is prompting to 16.5 XFX Radeon 5770 should I go for it, or not? Nothing is broke, big Kodi user but the card is starting to stumble on x265 with no hardware acceleration.

Graphics Chipset - AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series
Memory Size - 1024 MB
Memory Type - GDDR5
Core Clock - 850 MHz
Windows Version - Windows 7 (Service Pack 1)
System Memory - 12 GB
CPU Type - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz

If it's time to pack this in, what card is recommended, thinking 4K future?

If nothing is broken and the driver doesn't intro anything new I would just stay put.

But it should probably be swapped out now. Where to go is dependant on your budget. 4k requires allot of power, I would just aim for whatever resolution you game at.

Thanks for your quick reply, not a gamer but heavy HTPC stuff with Kodi and I'd like to play Hevc 4K 10bit but I might have to compromise. The new Nvidia Shield offers it for ~$300 while the graphic card prices to handle this level are not even in the same ballpark from what I can see. I was hoping to go with a legacy software update to re-establish hardware decoding for h265 but it looks like I'm living in the clouds.

Pretty sure you can get an RX 460 for 10-bit HEVC

Whooops, I assumed 4k for gaming. Plenty of affordable cards to fill the 4k gap and massively beat out a nVidia sheild device. Especially at $300 bux or under.

RX 460 is a good choice. But if you budget is in the nVidia Sheild range, you might want consider the RX 480 lvl stuff.

I don't think nVidia allows for 10-bit colour output for anything but gaming(ie in DX11 or newer) on non-quadro cards? Is that still true?

CES will introduce a new Shield, users have been clamouring for 4K 10bit, might be prudent to sit tight until the announcement. I still have the update knocking at my door, and I'm reticent to install.

I place the order for the new Nvidia Shiled2 TV box, should be here in a week or so, in at the $300 deal from Amazon. It's supposed be be able to do 4K UHD (10 bit) h265 in the mean time throwing caution to the wind, I tried to update but comes back as updated as I can get is what I got now. Overclocked the computer, and the gfx card and most is well. Configured Kodi to use MPC-hc for h265, 1080p and it's pretty smooth.

The kicker is a buddy visited with an Asus Aviva 2 core and I helped him with the Kodi install, it ran not sure how well on the heavy stuff basically 100% CPU but he had dual boot with Mint, Kodi install with the same video was 35% CPU!

So how do I turn off the AMD notification for new update, when they're not going to support this card anymore?

Happy 2017 if you can believe it...
