  1. Your PSU will be adequate...
    Though I will also advice you to get 2GB more ram.
  2. yea .. i was thinking of getting another 2 gb and changing into 64 bit .. but my frends said that some 32 bit games cant run on 64 bit win 7..btw any more tips on how i shud upgrade my current pc ? its quite new .. the pc is around 2 months and the mobo is 2 weeks lolz.. thanks for replying =]
  3. You should be okay.

    The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the 12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made.

    Almost all 32 bit games work on 64bit.
    If they don't work (though i have not seen any myself) then dual boot with 32 bit OS...

    All other things are good...I mean no bottleneck...


    "The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the 12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made."

    Means a 550W PSU from good brands like Corsair,Antec ,Seasonic etc will be adequate for any single card.

    Your Tagan is good but not like the ones I mentioned.
  6. true true.. thanks again .. now i understandd..=D .. can my current rig support phenom II x4 965 or 955 black edition?
  7. Yes it will support those processor...
    965 is a little less bang for buck as compared to 955.So get the 955.
  8. alrites =].. ill aim for the 955 blk edition then..thanks for ur help~(:
  9. No prob ;)
  10. btw if theres anyone who wana give some tips or recommend a good upgrade plz do so.. i really really nid your comments =D ..
