More about which graphic card
  1. Radeon 4670 for $70

    It will erform great upto 1680x1020

    It will be great for gaming at that resolution
  2. Thanks, what about 9600 gt 256 bit? It is about 89 $. Is the PSU enough for this card and for 4730?
  3. Well your PSU is a bit of a worry. Never heard of AOpen as a brand. Suggest changing that to something like Gigabyte Superb 460W or Corsair CX400.
    About your card 9600GT is certainly a bit more powerful than 4670.
    I have never heard of HD4730. When was this released?

    Whatever you do change your PSU first. Otherwise i wont even do good with a HD4670 in it as well.
  4. 9600 GT is a good and powerful card that performs slightly better then 4670
    Toms Hardware recommends both 4670 and 9600 GT.

    Well,
    PSU is just not good for both these cards,
    I am sorry, didn't read it before.
    You need atleast 400W PSU to run these cards

    But you can still buy 4650 and play all games with maximum settings at 1280x1024
    (personally experience)
    But I think you should upgrade your PSU to atleast, atleast 400W.

    Think twice before buying a new card.
    I strongly recommend you to wait a bit, arrange some money, upgrade PSU and Go for 9600 GT or 4670.

    Pick any of these.
    Some are cheap so take a brief look.

    All of these have good reviews and ratings.
  5. I would strongly recommend not to get the Cooler Master Extreme Series of PSU's. They are a load of crap. Other options i cannot comment on.

    Better of with Corsair, Antec anytime.

    Why not Cooler Master?
    I heard they are good
    I personally don't have any experience of them
  7. Thanx, I have to think a bit more..

    Cooler Master Real Power or Silent Power series are fine. Extreme series is extremely dangerous!
    If reviews are anything to go by:

    Thanks for the info.
  10. I have now learned to advise people to stay away from that PSU, coz i have replied to more than 100's of thread in my past 5 years of forum life, about people saying they have fried their PC's coz of this PSU. And the number is not a random number. It really is more than 100!
  11. You have got pretty much experience.
    Keep helping others.


    GOOD LUCk
