Oh, was that 60 total, or 60 for just the graphic card? I was assuming that the 60 was for the graphic card only: £82 graphic card +£52 PSU = £134 for both. You can probably even run one of the better cards on your psu.
I have £130 total to spend. Just the PSU i posted was what people suggested i buy when i first wanted to build the computer. I ended up being a tight ass and brought Arctic Power one, which I've tried 2 cards on and both times my computer would lock up when playing games (Nvidia 8800GT and ATI 4670).
But i was looking ahead as well. Cause once i get more money ill prob be buying a better card and a bigger monitor.
You shouldnt really need to spring for for than a 450w corsair unless you plan to use multiple video cards or overclock significantly. The 450w could run most graphic cards on the market today-- except for a few of the extremely high end ones. Anything above the 550w is only needed if you are running multiple cards. (even the 400w corsair that I have can run most cards)
I'm a bit worried about your problem running a 4670-- your PSU should handle that very easily....
I think the 4670 jyjjy listed is a decent low end option, but above that I would consider:
Well since I'm on integrated graphics at the moment, i don't to a lot of gaming. Mainly playing PES 2010 and Killing floor.
But I would be playing Prototype, GTA 4, Mass Effect and the like if i could.
And since i have a 17inch monitor i'll be playing at 1280x1040.
Also might as well point out I'm on Vista 64bit.
Since it wouldn't work i traded it for a PSP with a friend. I though it was a good deal since i got the card of a mate for £60.
But my friend spilt coffee over it when he was about to install it in his computer. And now it doesn't work at all.
Tbh, I would prefer to get a new psu, since the 4670 and the 8800 didn't work on this PSU. My computer has also locked up couple of times when gaming while using integrated graphics.
Yea-- a new PSU is a good investment that will keep your other components safer from electrical/failure issues.
Still though-- i need to emphasize that the previous 4670 should have worked with any PSU-- you might want to figure out if it was a faulty card, or if you have some motherboard/slot issue that you dont know about before purchasing another one.
