4650 vs 9800 gt Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Inspiron Graphics Last response: September 2, 2009 11:46 AM in Graphics & Displays Share DanT September 2, 2009 3:16:01 AM I'm shopping for an upgrade for my Dell Inspiron 545. The HD 4650 and 9800 gt (low power maybe?) seem like my best options. I think... Specs are Intel Core 2 quad Q8300 @ 2.5 4gb ram 500 gb hdd My worry is that that the standard PSU (300w - and I don't plan on upgrading it) would not handle the 9800 gt or anything better than the 4650. Which one is better? Are there any other cards I should consider? Any advice would be welcome. And for extra points...can these run NWN2? Thanks!

You can get a 9800GT but it might be pushing it...you can try the 9800GT low power version though. 9800GT > 9600GT > 4670 > 4650 > 9500GT m 0 l Related resources GeForce 9800 GT vs Radeon HD4650 vs Radeon HD4670 - Forum ATI Radeon HD 4650 vs GeForce 9800 gt - Forum 9800gt 512 VS HD4650 1024 Integrated - Forum HD4650 or 9800GT - Forum ATI 4650 vs 5550 vs 5570 vs Nvidia GT 240 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
