Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5Ghz 4 GB RAM
I need a new graphics card for my computer, something around the same range as the GTX460 range. It is needed for gaming. I was told it might be hard to find something given the size of the power supply? I am open to suggestions if it means an external power supply or something.
I am running a Acer Aspire X1800
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5Ghz
4 GB RAM
64 Bit
Currently the card is an Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 7100 graphics solution
PCI Express 2.0 x 16 graphics card support (low profile)

What are the specs of your power supply now? Open the case and read the label on the psu. Especially important is the 12 volt readings.

+12V / 14A
-12V / 0.3A
It says on the label 'total output not exceed 220W'

also has +3.3V / 13A
+5V 14A
+5VSB / 2A
+3.3V&+5V total output not exceed 80W

There's no way you're going to be able to run a high end gaming card like the GTX460 with a 220W power supply.

If I buy a 500W power supply, can I just rig it up outside the tower as an external? (as I'm sure I'd find a hard time trying to find one that would fit inside the tower)

Apart from looking like hell and having some wires exposed, do I have any other problems with doing this?
