I have a SilverStone SST-ST400.I was wondering what the best GPU was for this PSU. Budget does not matter, but I would like to not have to put this PSU on the shelf.
I looked at the tech sheet from SilverStone, and it said that the SST-ST400 can power a single 4850. or a single 9600GT from Nvidia.
I think the 5000 series are more power efficient than the 4000 right?
Also I would like it to be Linux compatible, but I can do that research myself.
Thanks for reading.
**Current System Specs information**
CPU: AMD Athlon II x4 620
RAM: 2GB DDR3-1333 (2*1 GB) <---WANT TO UPGRADE TO 6GB
HDD: 3 SATA drives <--------WILL THIS BE A PROBLEM?
Mobo: Gigabyte MA785GMT-UD2H
video: Nvidia 7500 LE
If I upgrade to 6 GB, (add 2*2), do I have to match the current frequency of the RAM that is already in?
For example, will I have problems if I put in DDR3-1600. OR will be speed of the 1600 just be reduced to 1333??
Unless you were planning on doing 2x2GB 1600 and then 2x1GB 1333. In which case, I can't say. But I'm can guarantee it won't go smoothly, and is likely to be a performance hit compared to simply just 2x2GB @ 1600.
