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 Related resources GeForce 9800 GT vs Radeon HD 4650 vs Radeon HD4670 - Forum ATI Radeon HD 4650 vs GeForce 9800 gt - Forum 9800gt 512 VS HD 4650 1024 Integrated - Forum 9600 GT vs 4650 - Forum Ati radeon 4650 DDR2 vs nvidia GeForce 9500 gt DDR3. which is better for gta iv - Forum Can't find your answer ?
