Hi guys i have a Gateway gt5482e computer. I want to know what is that best GPU i can get on a 288 watt PSU. I was thinking of a 9500 gt or an ati HD4670. Im planning on running some games on my new card such as COD4,farcy 2, and dead space. And please i dont want to upgrade my PSU i just want to know will the cards work on my PSU and whats the best card i can get on my PSU.
90nm AMD Athalon 64x2 dual core 6000+ 3.0ghz core clock uses 125watts on a full load
Nvidia nforce 480 motherboard with 6150se intergrated graphics
3 gigs of DDR@ ram clocked at 667 mhz on each of the 4 cards (1gig,512mb,1gig,512mb) dual channels
400 gb 7200rpm sata II HDD
DVD+RW super multi drive
4 usb devices mouse,keyboard,etc.
19" 1440X900 res monitor
For the 9500 gt add 50 watts of power. For HD4670 add 65. For a card that you recommend please tell me that power conumption.
Sorry for not offering any suggestions about a GPU (the above suggestions look fine, though!), but what makes you believe that is a high quality PSU? If you had just read the name and specs of that PSU, I suspect I and everyone else would tell you that it's a piece of junk that probably can't put out what it's rated for, at least at a sustained level, for long.
I got 283 watts with everything on max power use and i also added 10 extra watts just to be sure. The 283 wattage use was with the HD4670 i would think that with a 9500gt i would use 260 watts because it uses about 15 watts less then the HD 4670. on a 90% load it came in at 255 watts still had 10 watts added extra to be sure. with the 9500 gt it was 245.
