Hello everyone, It would be really great it u could please help me,
I currently have a 500W power Supply and am running the following Components:
Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.8GHz Socket AM2 RAM : 3Gb DDR2 Kingston 800MHz Hard Drives : 2 x 500gb SEAGATE (internals) Motherboard : ASUS M2N-MX SE PLUS DVD Writer : LG SATA DVD Writer Case : Nitron Blue with 3 extra fans.
I want to get either a NVIDIA Geforce 260 896MB GDDR3 - XFX Edition or ATI Radeon 4870 1Gb GDDR 5 - Asus.
I want to know if my 500w power supply will be able to run this setup? and if you would give your personal opinion on which card u think is better?
I already know about Kill-A-Watt i just don't have access to one in my country.
yes...it will be enough....but if u have a chance to upgrade the PSU then do it....the ati card is a clear winner....I think u may want to upgrade the PSU if u are goin 4870 to get the best of it....otherwise ur cool...
