250W PSU -- Raedon HD 4650

Hello everybody,

I own a Dell 530s with the 250W PSU. I am looking to upgrade my video card and have done some research, but thought I'd get your guys opinions.

A lot of people say this is a good choice :

but I found this one here:

would my system have any problem running the 1GB card vs. the 512MB?

Thanks.

  1. there wont be any problem running 1gb card but that card isn't powerful enough to use 1gb video ram so its better to get a 512MB since 1 GB is a waste of RAM
  2. I would get a HD 5670 512MB if you can spend around $90. It basically consumes about the same amount of power as the older HD 4650, but is roughly 30% more powerful than the HD 4670.

    The HD 5570 uses even less power and it's performance is roughly equivalent to the HD 4670.

    I'll assume the HD 5450 is a near equivalent to the HD 4650.
