  1. Please Answer ME Back Quick !
  2. The HD7750 is the best graphic card you can get, which is low profile.
    Post rest of your PC's hardware so if we can decide if 220 Watt is enough. It will be close.
  3. Other specs like what
    i got 2gb ram
    500 gb storage
    windows 8 pro
    intel pentium dual 1.80GHZ

    and yeah the card u recommended say 400Watt needed ?
  4. Best answer
    Hmm I think you would be OK, which such a low end CPU but dude... Your system is really old and only meets the absolute minimum PC requirements for Runescape 3 so don't expect the game to be nice and smooth.

    The best advice I can give is to upgrade your PC but yeah I think you can barely get away with a 7750HD. Do you happen to know what motherboard you have?
  5. or how about this card : http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/ENGT430DI1GD3LP/
    asus ENGT 430 !
  6. couldnt found out what mother board i have ! sorry about that !
  7. Well that meets the minimum requirements as well. Anything higher than Geforce 210 is the minimum requirements.

    Again there's no guarantee that the game will play smoothly with these specs.
  8. Thanks buddy !
    its quite an old damn pc and it has been running very smoothly since all these years :)
  9. buy a console :D, it is more cheap
  10. evenan hd7750 requires at least a 400W. upgrade ur psu to at least a corsair Cx430W and a hd7750

    The 7750 does not need at least 400 Watts. It depends on the system overall. 400 Watts is more or less "Worst case scenario" with a safety margin on top of that.
  12. well i said 400W psu and yes it requires a 400W psu but is also compatible with a 350W. however,if u are going to upgarde these days,then u would definitely be aiming for at least a good branded 450W psu like the Cx430W

    Agreed I wouldn't recommend a PSU below 450/500W for newer systems but look here: This is the power consumption for an i7 based system

  14. The HD7750 only receives power through the PCIe slot, which supports a max of 75W. The CPU has a 65W TDP.
    Including another 40W of miscellaneous power draw (RAM, HDD, mobo, etc) then you should come in 40W under the PSU's advertised wattage.

    However its an old machine and PSU's don't age well, and given its a prebuilt I doubt it was anything special to begin with. Also that's the advertised wattage, what its actually capable of outputting in useful 12v power is unknown.
    Your pushing it, just be aware of that.

    I agree that the age and the brand of the PSU is a significant factor here but I actually think he went with the 430 anyways. Theoretically he should be able to run a 7750 though. But yeah.. not recommended!
  16. yeah that's the point, u don't like to push the 12V rail beyond it's limits
