I was thinking about getting the Nvidia 9800 GT, seems quite good. I was also wondering if i need to upgrade my power supply in the computer, i am not tht great with all the tech specs and know what everything means. Any suggestions on what kind of power supply i should get would also be great. thx More about : upgrade hunter315 a c 286 ) Power supply a c 201 U Graphics card January 23, 2010 8:07:50 PM whats your budget for a graphics card? The 9800GT was good but it is several years old now and there may be a better option in your price range. Since you are only planning on getting a single card a good 500 or 550W PSU would be right for you, something like the Corsair 550VX would be a good investment and will power any single graphics card without a problem http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l eoghanns January 23, 2010 8:20:31 PM I would be willing to spend about $200 +/- 50 on a graphics card. Pretty much I want to be able to get MW2 with good settings playing smoothly and to be have WoW on max settings with good frame rate. As for the power supply, do they all fit in the same space ? do they all have a standard size ? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
