I currently run a Duo Core 1.86Ghz, 4GB Ram, 7300LE, 305W PSU. I am trying to play dragon age like on a medium setting an my video card isn't letting me play at medium, even at the lowest setting, the game is still a little choppy. So I was wondering what solution to go.
I know that this has been posted a couple times. Upgrading the video card on a E520. I went to Frys and I saw a video card on sale. It was the Geforce GT 240. The box said 300W or greater PSU. Would anyone recommend this card? Will this card work without switching out the PSU? http://www.frys.com/product/6119469?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...
I also read that people been recommending the 9600GT. I can't seem to find the 300w version of this card anywhere now. Doesn't seem like newegg carries the lower wattage version in stock.
If I do switch out the PSU, which brand is a good brand to buy? How much more Watts should I get the PSU in?
Any other recommendation of Video cards or solutions please help.
Like all the 4670 and 4650's that I have found, the back of the box says 400w or greater PSU. Would these work?
Or would I have to find one that says 300W or greater box.
Would any of these cards make my system shut down or cause harm in my computer without upgrading the PSU? Only thing I have connected will be a USB seagate docking port and ipod touch connector. That will be the only external powers I am using.
