Which PSU should i pick?


I have a 2 year old Fujitso Siemens Scaleo P computer. I want to upgrade its graphic card from an Nvidia Geforce 8600gt to an ATI 5770 XFX version. However my computer only has a 400watt PSU and I want to upgrade it. How do i know which one to pick? All i know is that it should be aroung the 500watts but i know nothing about the ampers, volts and even the different cables... Does anyone know what i should pick?


Motherboard: AMD690VM-FMH
CPU: AMD turion 64 X2 2.66 GHz 5000+
RAM: 3 GB DDR2 800MHz

2 hardisk SATA don't know if it is a 5400rpm or 7200rpm

  1. Hi.

    U can go with this Antec 500W that is enoug for ur rig.
  2. How do i know if the cables fit or not?
  3. Is ur current PSU ATX right? or is very similar to this?
  4. It is similar to the picture i saw. Don't know if it is and ATX the brand is FSP Group INC. Model NO: FSP400-60HLN.
  5. Right, ur PSU is ATX, so, the recommended PSU fit perfectly in ur case.

    Looks this two links and compare the specifications, u will see that are very similar.

    1- Recommended PSU
    2- Ur current PSU
  6. Okay so to run an ATI 5770 my PSU should be just fine right?
  7. For the 5770 ur current PSU isn't enough, u need a 500W PSU at least.
  8. Okay thanks
  9. Any time, that's why we are here.
