Hello i have a gateway sx2800-1 currently it has a gma 4500 which is not that great. the gateway has 220 watt power supply and i am not planning on changing it. i am looking for a card that can run things smoothly. IF any one have upgraded the same model can u please tell me what card you used thanks!
The Egg has a 585w power supply for 19.99 and free shipping..If i was you I would invest in a power supply and then you could pretty much have whatever video card you want..I actually have that power supply in one of my builds and use it with a 9600GT, been using it for over a year with zero problems..I know they don't recommend using cheap power supply's but hey, when the money is tight you do what you gotta do to get by..
Oh, lol. Yeah, PSUs like that are a gamble, it could turn out fine or it could need to be replaced with-in a week. You never know. Upgrading the PSU is a good call here and there's been some pretty nice PSU deals on newegg for holidays.
