Can I upgarde an HP-Pavilion m9150f with a NIVIDA GeForce 8500 GT to a EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB? I understand I will need a 450 Watt power supply. What power supply do you recommend that will work with both the new video card and the m9150f?
I live in Canada so my choices are limited on components. For monitors I have a Samsung T240 and T240HD. I don not play games, and I am just trying to increase computers base score of 4.5 on the video.
If you don't play, why do you want to score higher? o.O
No video card is going to change your life on regular windows/linux/mac browsing or video playback... That 8500 is enough for any non-gaming and non-pro-rendering interest IMO.
yeh, if you don't game, intergarted is fine, nevermind 8xxx seris. Stick with what you have, unless you plan on picking up a copy of Crysis.
^+1 .. I dont see a reason to upgrade if you dont game. The 8500 will run a 24' monitor just fine. Windows experience score means nothing. Its not really an accurate representation of your computer.
Yeh, a 5970 quadfire, the second best possible setup at the moment, would score low cuase WE score uses the downclocked speed , and doesn't factor xfire.
