I have an AMD Phenom 9550 processor on an M3A78-CM mobo. Will I get more performance if I buy a HD4830 instead of an 8800GT? Also how much power do I need for the HD 4830 or 8800GT/9800GT? I have a 450W power supply with 25A on +12V rail?
Thanks man I really anted to clear that out. So I am going to buy 8800GT. Should I upgrade my power supply? I checked XFX site and it says you need 500W or greater for non SLI. Will I be ok with my 450W? I 25A on +12V rail.
Well the 4830 and the 8800GT are very close in competition...But the 4830 beats the 8800GT when AA and AF is enabled ...And the 4830 draws less power compared to the 8800GT...And yes ur PSU will be sufficient for the 4830...
Well what is the make of ur PSU ??? is the 25A on a single 12V rail or dual ?? Take care u have a good brand PSU because even if u get a low quality high wattage PSU is still no competition to Hgh Quality, low wattage PSU...
If u have any good brands like Corsar, Antec, cooler master, OCZ ,silverstone, PC &P, then u are good to go...
Well they are official partners of ati and nvidia so i think u can...as for the PSU check which brand is it...and if its not of good quality then dont overclock ur components...if u dont overclock then the PSU is suffice...
WELL I HAVE GOT A 4830, I WAS ALSO DECIDING IT WITHIN 8800GT OR 4830 OR 9800GT,
BUT GUESS WHAT,
4830 IS SUPERIOR IN PERFORMANCE AGAINST 88/98GT AS U CAN FIND OUT IN GURU3D.
4830 ALSO SUPPORTS DIRECT X 10.1 THAT ENHANCES FRAMERATE IN PLAYING GAMES WHICH SUPPORT 10 SUCH AS IN HAWX.(WHICH 10.1 NVIDIA DOESNT SUPPORT)
AND DONT BE MISTAKEN THERE ISSS A DIFERENCE BETWEEN DIRECT X 10.1 AND 10.
DX10.1 SUPPORTS SHADER MODEL 4.1
IT IT HAS MORE STREAM PERFORMANCE AND BETTER ON THE BENCH MARK AGAINST 9800GT IN MOST OF GAMES.
WELL I WOULD RECOMMEND TO GO FOR 4830.
HERES THE LIKNKK TO FIND HOW 4830 BEATS 9800GT.
