  1. Those will work fine. Since you only have a 32 bit system it's the best you can do. If you upgraded to a 64 bit version of windows you could install up to 8gb.

    Windows 7 Home Basic Limits to 8GB,
    Windows 7 Home Premium Limits to 16GB
    Windows 7 Profession/Enterprise/Ultimate Limit to 192GB.
  3. Even with 250W Power Supply?

    Yeah, heh, I don't think anything above the 8gb limit matters since it's all his rig supports. But he would need a 64 bit version to get past the limitation of 4gb as we all know.
  5. Well, upgrading your power supply is never a bad idea, and don't make the rookie mistake of using a cheap one (Your power supply is the most important component in your computer. Plus, it's the only one that can take out every single other component in your rig.) or you'll end up sad and since you already have an awfully small one for what you're running it's probably a good idea.

    That card calls for a 400w psu which is frankly what you should be running. Regardless, the windows operating system doesn't give two shits about how many watts your system is using as long as it's enough for the requirements of the components so it doesn't encounter errors due to lack of adequate power. If you upgraded to 8gb of RAM and a 64 bit system, I don't think it would make a single bit of difference to your power requirements beyond the fact that your graphics card already calls for a better PSU.

    You can get a pretty decent Corsair CX series PSU here for fairly cheap. If you go with something else, you better make sure it's on the top three tiers of the Power supply tier list or like I said, you'll probably end up wishing you had. You've been lucky so far, I wouldn't push it.

    Here my PC for more details

    It did come with (Not known brand) but Special 250Watt Powersupply (I been using computer everyday with the 7800 GT PCI-E x16)) for around 13 hours everyday.

    As I said, you've been lucky. If that card ever spikes or you play something more demanding than what you've been playing it might strain your resources. Likely your fine, but with that card and cpu and the addition of more RAM it's probably best to just go with what the card lists as a minimum, which is already probably more than it will ever need but they provide those specs for a reason.

    I think i can manage just like i did with my [OLD]Pentium 4 HT with 4650 AGP Radeon GPU which
    i had the computer more than 5 years and still working
  9. Ok, well good luck. Take care.
