I was wondering if a 7600GT would work in this system. I currently have a Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
Athlon 64 3200+
1 Gig RAM
Antec TruePower 380W PSU with 18A on the 12V rail.
I know it would be a big upgrade from my current card, and I don't want to spend the money to build a new system right now. I'm just basically wondering if my PSU can support it, since from what I've read it would be pretty close.
Dont see a problem at all i used to run a 9800 on my generic 400 watt supply and have run a x800xl which draws about 15 more watts than the 7600gt, im now running a x1650xt which draws more than the x800 used to.
I wouldnt be supprised if the 7600 actually uses less than the 9800.
It will work just fine since that card takes 14 watts LESS then the 9800Pro. Factor in a few extra watts for the pci-e to agp brigde if there is one(dont remember if they ever made a native AGP 7600GT) and your still ahead in power and performance.
