Hi im new on the forum and i was just looking for some advice.
I'm looking to buy one of these cards and I know that the x1950GT is better because I checked out the benchmarks on the main site. But I was wondering whether it is worth spending another £22 on it (I am on a very tight budget). I am unsure whether this is the right area to post this (if I'm wrong I am sorry) but I am doing a major upgrade from:
So that has decided me on the gfx front but which motherboard would you recommend. I read that chipset to gfx card matching doesn't matter, so getting a SLI ready motherboard for when the 2nd Gen DX10 NVIDIA's are out (I'm usually a Nvidia man) would that be a good idea?
Just look for a namebrand PSU with about 450watts and at least 30 amps on the 12 volt rail(s) and you should be good to go. I know Antec, FSP, and Enermax (as well as others) make some great, low cost PSUs.
What are the specs on your current PSU, and how long have you had it?
(Most importantly, how many 12v rails, and how much amperage on each?)
Your PSU could likely be fine, although, I haven't heard of that brand before
