Video Card: ATI Radeon Graphics Processor AGP (0x4150)

Video RAM 256.0 MB

My little brother has the same system specs but a little higher CPU (a little)
He has 350 Watt Power Supply
He has Radeon 4650 HD.
It plays every single game out there with maximum settings at 1280x1080
Go for it.
You won't regret it

NO...Change the PSU for sure...Good 350 W PSU have 18-20A on +12V.
This means yours is low quality PSU.

Ram cards?
Do you mean you have 2 video cards with 1 & 2 gigs respectively?

I'm pretty sure you have no idea what you are talking about. Thats not bad, but you should probably do some reading or post a picture.


You want to 1) buy the Corsair 400CX for $39 on newegg, then 2) get a 4670 graphic card. Its a great value at about $60 online.

If you wanted to spend more you could get a better graphic card with that power supply, but how much you spend on that is entirely dependent on how serious you are about gaming.

I guess you can also go for a HD5750 along with the CX400W. Provided it fits your budget.

I think the confusing part was that you said PCI rams earlier. And said you put them in PCI express slots. The pci express slot is where the graphics card goes--not where ram goes.

If you are just talking about system memory it is always better to use ram of equal size together. If you have to put two sizes in at once put the bigger one in the first slot.
