I want to put a new graphics card in my dell inspiron 660. I was thinking of getting an eVGA Geforce 650. I have never done this before so I was wondering if over heating might be a problem. I have no idea what kind of motherboard I have either. Also will I need a higher wattage power supply too?

Here's a link to the graphics card

Need to know more details about what you have. I dont think that overheating is likely to be an issue and id bet that your power supply is probably ok. We need to know what your motherboard is and your PSU. Wouldnt hurt to let us konw what case you have either.

Also another question, do you have mini tower or slim version, please confirm this. If you have mini tower - upgrade will be easy!

No, the GTX 650 required a 450 Watt or Greater PSU, your Dell Inspiron has a 300 Watt PSU.

Try to replace your PSU.


Knowledge is the power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111

Look at those Asus 650 cards http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

No power supply upgrade required: System Requirements
Up to 75W Power Requirement


So, if you choose 650 you save a lot, if you go higher, you definatly need power supply upgrade?!

So, which way you want to go 650 or higher? If higher, tell us your budget.
