I was thinking of replacing my old Radeon X600 256MB with an Asus GeForce 8800GTX 768MB, and also, I was going to upgrade my PSU to a 600W from a 305W to accomodate this.
My specs are:
Dell Dimension 5150
X16 PCI-E slot
I am very anxious, because I'm not sure if my mobo will have enough slots for the PSU or the graphics card and I will buy them only to discover they don't work. I'm not very experienced at computers. I live in Ireland, and I am wondering if the voltage or amps could work in my country and on my motherboard.
I was told by Dell that the card would work on my PC without the need for a PSU (mind you, that was before they tried to sell me it for 616 euro!!!) and that it would work fine with my mobo, but I'm not too certain, as I guess they were just trying to sell me a card for a ridiculous price.
Any help would be appreciated.
Plus, if the PSU is bad or whatever, would you be able to recommend a new one? I am looking for below the 50 euro price range. Thanks again.
I was looking at this and I was wondering if this would work on my PC. It is a branded PSU, not a generic one, but whenever I go into the website, it says in red: "This PSU has 1 PCI-e connection", so I am wondering if it could work.
