  1. Yes it should still run in the slot.

    PCI express basics

    http://www.enthusiastpc.net/articles/00003/3.aspx
    Great info here:
  2. As long as you have enough power supply to safely run it, yes. Of course, it will run at PCIe 1.0 speeds.

    Please say the power supply you have as well as the processor your system has and let me tell you if you are good to go or might have a problem powering that GPU.


    How do i know if my power supply will be able to run it well??
  4. Sorry i clicked solve button accidentally my question is not solved yet!
  5. Can you please tell me how to know if my PSU has enough power to run it well or not
  6. Ummm how can i know if its in good condition or not?
    sorry for many question i'm beginner
  7. Total wattage is not the relevant issue , it's the strength of the 12v+ rail , cheaper PSU's are often mislabled and don't have the power on the rail to effectively run the cards.

    I found something on my PSU stickers says: 12v+ and word (yellow) above it
  9. Should display the amps on the 12v+ rail.

    It can only be decided when you realize that things your PSU should be powering , it can;t do so effectively any more....
    What I implore you to do is to go ahead and buy the graphics card and install it, that is the only way you will know if it works... If it was a PSU below the minimum requirement for that graphics card, then I could say definitively that it wouldn't work.. But your PSU is 400 wats, so once it is working well it should be ok... And don't be scared to get the graphics card, the PSU not working up to potential will not damage it.

    how many power cable i need for GPU?

    Where i can found all this info?
    i just see sticker on my psu and it says yellow green purple .etc
  12. It says you need a 6 pin PCIe power connector for that card, if you don't have one you can always use a 4 pin (molex) to 6 pin adaptor. That said, I'm worried about your PSU. I know nothing about it, but the name "unbranded" scares me, cheap PSUs often can't deliver their rated power output and can fail spectacularly with lots of smoke and even flames.
  13. Ugh what flames what smoke? i'm gonna throw this useless PC on trash

    The flame part may be slightly over stating what happens, but watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6snWfd1v7M
  15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ezk9OA7aKOE
    Here's what could happen.
  16. I used my PSU for around 2 years for now and its works well its not getting too hot
    but sometimes it do annoying high sound when start up but after around 2 minutes sound go
  17. Then what? i have only 1 psu cable unused and my psu works well
    Umm you telling me to not waste 1 buck on this PC?
  18. We are just stating make sure your PSU is of decent quality.
  19. What should i do then? its unbranded :(

    The smart thing to do would be to buy a new PSU. However I can understand if you don't want to spend any more than you need to on an old computer.
    As I don't know what the rest of your computer consists of, I'll take a guess and say that something so old that it's using 1.0 PCIe isn't going to have a high power requirement. Therefore the required 400W is probably double what your system would actually draw with that GPU. If you are prepared to take the risk of potential damage to your other components (including that new GPU) if the PSU was to fail, then you can try using it and see how you get on.
  21. I tried to see the +12V rating in that enlarged pic of your PSU. It appears the +12V rail is good for amperage in the "teens" from what I can see. Can you verify that? Look at the +12V column and tell us what is below that. But if it is only in the teens, I would advise you not to use that card with that PSU.
  22. Okay what i got GT 610 will it work good?
  23. A GeForce GT 610 needs 16 amps on the 12v + rail and a 300 watt power supply with no additional PCIE power needed.

    That would be a better choice.

    below +12V is 21A
    and btw my PSU isn't same on the page its completely different i just googled P40-400W on google and found it as 1st result same specs
  25. Should be able to run the GT 610.

    Without risk?
    +
    i found Cooler Master GX 650W 80 PLUS Power Supply for 133 USD on website is it good?
  27. No , GX is very poor.
  28. SR-71 Blackbird said:
    No , GX is very poor.


    So i will be able to run GT 610 without risk?
    +
    Should i keep this one or buy the GX ones?
  29. I found this GPU on 8th page of search on google : http://saudi.souq.com/sa-en/xfx-one-r-series-plus-edition-graphics-card-1gb-7092997/i/
    is this good one?
  30. It should run the 610 , very low power draw.

    is there any risk using GT 610 with my current PSU?
  32. Not really , the card draws very little power , all from the slot.

    There is always a risk, but it should be fine. The 610 is a low end card, what is it you want to achieve from a new graphics card? Also, what CPU do you have?
  34. Not much risk the slot powers the card , maximum draw of 29W.

    My CPU is intel pentium dual core E2220 no worries i'm gonna get the Pentium E6700-E6800-E6600
    my goal of GPU is playing some windows store games like asphalt 8 airbrone and some online flash games Left 4 dead 2 and GTA IV small untiy games indie games unity indie games like among the sleep or Outlast at med or low settings + Rocket league and Plants vs zombies garden warfare at lowest settings
  36. You should be fine.

    Any need for CPU change? or keep current ones?

    Ok, the GT 610 is a pretty good match then, no point getting a high end card on an old machine.

    Don't change, the improvement wouldn't be worth the cost of a new CPU.
  40. Don't change , with the low draw SLOT POWERED card you should be fine.

    But my GPU will be bottlenecked and gaming performance will be limited cause of CPU
