My question is this: I need to upgrade my PSU to run the video card I want to get but I need to know what the maximum wattage PSU is I can install without upgrading anything else. I need a 450W PSU for the card I want. I currently have 300W. Here's a link to my PC specs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Basic PC Specs- HP p6320y 8GB DDR3 Ram 1T Hard Drive 300W PSU
Here is a really good deal on a Antec NEO ECO 400C 400W PSU. $45 before $10 rebate. And a extra $5 off promo code till Sept 8th. And free shipping. With a strong +12V rail with 30Amps it's got as much power as most average 450W PSUs.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB Card. I only have the integrated card and it sucks.
Here is an example of the GTX 460 power requirement: EVGA GTX 460 Superclocked. "Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 24 Amps.) "
I'm kind of a n00b when it comes to video card/psu and all that jazz. I know what psu I need I just need to know will I have to upgrade my PC to use the PSU i get.
No... it will fit inside the case without a problem and all the connectors are standard.
ok. thank you very much for your help. I couldn't find the answer anywhere.
