  1. Which 500W psu is it? What do you have on the 12V rails?

    Honestly you have alot of options. You could go with a 4850, 9800GTX+, maybe even a 4870. You don't really have a power hungry system. You could get away with alot of that PSU has 32A+ or so on the 12V rails
  2. Is it enough for GTX 260 or GTX 280 ???
  3. I would say Yes to the GTX 260. But I would stay away from the GTX280. They have a 6 pin and 8 pin connector as it pulls more power. I believe you can get a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter, but I would play it safe.

    The GTX 260 requirements are a 500W with 36A on the 12V rails.
  4. From Diamonds site about their HD4870 512

    "Minimum System Requirements

    * PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
    * 500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)”
    * Certified power supplies are recommended.
    * 1GB of system memory
    * Installation software requires CD-ROM drive
    * DVD playback requires DVD drive
    * Blu-ray™ / HD DVD playback requires Blu-ray / HD DVD drive
    * For a complete ATI CrossFireX™ system, a second ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 graphics card, an ATI CrossFireX Ready motherboard and one ATI CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect cable per board (included) are required
    * Double slot solution"

    From EVGAs site about their GTX260/216

    "Minimum System Requirements

    * 1GB of system memory (2GB recommended)
    * CD or DVD-ROM drive
    * 100MB of available hard disk drive space for basic driver installation
    * Microsoft Windows Vista. or XP operating system (Windows Vista. required for 3-Way NVIDIA SLI)
    * PCI Express or PCI Express 2.0-compliant system motherboard with one vacant PCI Express x16 slot
    * One vacant add-in card slot below the PCI Express x16 slot. This graphics card physically occupies two slots
    * 500W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 36A or more
    * Two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors"
  5. Which one of these two is better ?
  6. GTX 260 or GTX 260 216sp. Or an HD 4850/4870 are your best choices.
  7. Depends on what games you play honestly. The 4870 1Gb has been doing pretty well in the benchmarks. The GTX 260 seems to overclock a bit better though.
  8. Like the others, I`d go for either the GTX260 or HD4870 1Gb NOT the 512Mb version.
    It`s more a matter of what is around in your particular country, and at what price because neither card is that much better/worse than the other.
  9. Thank you all ..

    I just wannet to play JERICHO all high ... but these cards are too slow
