nvidia ge force 9600 GT (59 W )

December 31, 2009 at 00:18:11
Specs: Windows Vista sp2, amd athlon 64 x2 (3800+) / 1.5 GB ram

i realize nvidia has a 59 W version of the Ge force 9600 GT,. ( it uses less power than the 9500 GT)
my comp is a dell inspiron 531 S slimline. and i read reviews that 9500 GT is alright for that machine, but its not as good as 9600 GT card--- now there's the 59 W version which looks to me to be better than the 9500 GT for my computer..... but im not sure...

here are my specs:

my OS is Vista and
processor is AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core
processor 3800+
at 2.01 GHz
Ram is 1.50 GB
32-bit operating system
memory max is 100GB (85.9GB used)
and..... PSU is only 250 W (but apparently good enough for 9500GT according to reviews--ive never tried it myself)
if you have any suggestions please reply

The 9600GT is actually faster than the HD4670. The 9500GT sucks for gaming & should be avoided.

You're screwed because of the Slimline case though. You'll have to get a low profile card & that will severely limit your video card options. Upgrading the power supply will be a problem too, also due to the case. Time to bail on the Slimline & buy a *real* PC.

slimline cases use micro atx psus, search around, there is a
400W one on newegg. don't ditch the whole comp because you
cant get "the best" cards. the 9600 gt is a wonderful card. It will
run anything you throw at it. Based on your system though I
would try to get more ram. maybe 3-4 gigs total if you are
shooting for the whole "full graphics on crysis" kind of machine.
A lot of people over-react when new tech comes out and feel
they "need" it. Don't fall for it, your pc is fine.

No problem, If you have any other questions feel free to ask. A
PSU is kind of hard to tell if it will fit. Make sure you measure
your case compared to the specifications listed on Newegg. If it
won't fit right, then we may have a problem.

Well here's the thing, It could be dangerous as anything inside
the case is relatively protected from static by the case itself.
Also, the cables may be too short to reach the parts in the
case. Are you sure you are searching "MICRO atx psu
400W"? because the couple that come up for me are Dell/ HP
upgrade psus and it should work fine.
I'm going to try and post a link.

That didn't appear to work, but it is the first two on the top of the
search page sorted by "best match"
