hi everybody. I have a dell 530S (the slim version) and i would like to upgrade my lame integrated card.
I have read through many forums and alot of people say that the ati 4650 can work with the 530s
here are some cards ive been looking at:

will these cards work?

I also heard that ddr3 consumes less power? is this true?

Sorry but with that weak of PSU those cards will not work. I don't think your going to get any modern GPU that will work on 250 Watts.

I believe the 250watt PSU in Dell PC's have 18 amps on the 12v rail. The 4650 will run fine on it, though I suggest you don't go any higher then that.



So should i get the ddr3 version or the ddr2?

DDR3 is better, but DDR2 is cheaper (Under $60 as opposed to $70+). Get whichever you want and can afford.

Did not know if it was for games or if you were using it for a HTPC, in which case a HD4550 would have been a better choice.
Your PSU should have no real problems with either GDDR3 or GDDR2 versions of the HD4650.
Before making a decision, check the warranty, the Egg are good within their 30 policy but after that things are very different.

The hd 4550 is better for gaming?

I think he is saying if you are planning to use this in a HTPC then the 4550 would be a better choice. But since you want to play COD4/WaW then you can go with the 4650.

Well Thanks for the help!

I'm gonna go with the ddr3 4650.
