Solved Want to upgrade 8600GT Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Inspiron Graphics Last response: December 31, 2009 11:24 PM in Graphics & Displays Share LegioXIX December 31, 2009 10:27:15 PM I'm looking for the best upgrade I can get from my 8600GT. I am using a Dell Inspiron 531 with a 300w PSU so I need a card that doesn't require the 6-pin connector. I mainly game at 1680x1050 resolution. Specs: AMD X2 5600+ 3GB Ram 22" Monitor 1680x1050 Thanks More about : upgrade 8600gt Best solution rolli59 a c 1032 U Graphics card December 31, 2009 10:33:31 PM HD4670 or GT240 they are not a massive upgrade though. There is a low power version ECO/Green 9800GT that does not require external power but I do not have it confirmed that it runs on the Dell 300watt PSU although it is likely. LegioXIX December 31, 2009 11:04:56 PM Thanks for the reply. I guess my question now would be whether it is worth it to drop around $100 for a new card? I also see that ATI is coming out with a 5670. Would it be worth it to wait for that? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer rolli59 a c 1032 U Graphics card December 31, 2009 11:24:56 PM LegioXIX said:Thanks for the reply.

It is going to be low power for sure! Performance wise maybe equal to HD4830 or HD4770. Waiting is up to you though. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
