Jul 1, 2010, 4:30 PM
Okay one of my friends has a HP computer with a "low wattage" psu its 290w currently there is 3gb ram q6600 and a 8600GT
id like to know how much power the 5750 uses and if that would be useable.
what is the best upgrade he could do?

No, the HD5750 is quite low power for its performance but putting it on an 290w PSU is asking for too much. The max I would try is an HD5670.

Yes iwas thinking the same 5750 really high end card for so low psu usage . but what do you think about the upgrade from 8600gt to 5670. the 5670 is alot faster.
