  1. what the size of your power supply in wattage??
  2. AMD 7750 GDDR5 will make an inexpensive replacement and stomp all over the 8400gs.

    8400gs has a max power draw of 71watts, while the 7750 draws 55watts, no external power connections required.

  3. Its the Intex Empower+ Cabinet with 450W power supply
  4. also use a 7770 that has 85w draw and be fine. both cards will work well.
  5. Guys, thanks for the prompt suggestions. I'm a little confused though. Does my Mobo supports DDR5 for graphic card. Its says its a DDR3 PCIe. Please check the link below:

  6. how would SAPPHIRE HD6670 2GB DDR3 work with my system? any ideas?
  7. Take only 6670 1GB DDR5 if you can, else 1 GB DDR3 and you should get 2GB more RAM because 2GB are not enough even for a new OS and it is bad for gaming.

    GDDR5 refers to the memory on the video card, stomps all over normal DDR3.

    7750 beats 6670.
