Apologies, thought that I would also add that I had been reading the best 375W Graphics Card thread. (Three times)
Much appreciated again!
Hi man, I live in india too.I have a dell inspiron 530 Quad with 350W PSu and am about to go to an 8800Gt/9600GT/
HD 4670 Whichever is cheaper and better.
You could go to 9800Gt if you have a good budget ie. around 7000 rupees.
If u want the link for a 9800 GT here it is
Yup! That is the machine! If all they are worried about doing is blocking my 8 slot below, I don't care at all! It looks like I will be going with the 9800GTX then, if height is not an issue!
I was worried about the power until DellUser1 in the "Best 375W Graphics Card Thread" explained about the power in the dell processors. They use 30a, while most other power supplies are 24a. He mentioned that is far more important than wattage. Of course, I got the impression I shouldn't go for some 500w monster, although that would be awesome!
My only concern with the 9800GTX is the power connection. It states that it uses two 6pin's and I believe that I only have one. I heard in the thread that there is an adapter that can convert the two to one, but I have no idea where to find that.
I appreciate that. I will check on that or just go with the GTS250 as, according to nVidia's website, the minimum is 400w, which if I have this right, means that my 375W 30a PSU, should handle this just fine.
