my hp media centre pc config is
PentiumD 820 (S) DC 2.8 GHz
800 MHz front side bus
motherboard name: Asterope2-GL8E Chipset X200
2 GB DDR2 ram 667Mhz
Hard drive 160 GB SATA 7200 rpm
GeForce 7300LE 64 MB DDR memory
300W HIPRO smps with 19A on 12V Rail
i am upgrading my gpu to 512 mb hd 4670.
do i need to change the power supply.
i also have on tv tuner card, one lan card, and one more pci card. i am planning to remove the latter two as i am not using them.
i also have a coolermaster fan/heatsink other than the fan which comes with the pc.
Well, if it's any consolation: I ran an x1900xt off a 320w power supply for a couple weeks! And that video card pulls around 2-2.5x as much power as the 4670 you're looking at, so I think you'll be fine!
hey thank for the help. one more question is that how much will be my pc bottlenecked by 4670 as compared to 9500 or will there be no bottlenecking.? does 9500 gives the same performance as compared to 4670? i have heard that there are always problem with ati drivers. Will i be able to play the newly released rpg and fps like cod 4, stalker cs, last remnant, gta iv, fallout 3, crysis warhead etc at 1024x768 with max settings and AA and AF without any problem
