I have a 4-years-old Dell XPS Gen 5 whose ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum I apparently just killed by trying to play HL2Ep2
Do you think it's possible to give this machine another one or two years of life with a Sapphire ATI Radeon 5750? Would the PCIe 1.0 be a serious bottleneck? Would I need to upgrade the power supply as well? Are there any potential problems, I'm not seeing yet?
Dell-branded motherboard, based on Intel's 955X Express chipset
Pentium 4 660HT 3,60 GHz
4 GB DDR2 667
460W power supply
