My nVidia Geforce 8800 GT 512MB recently died on me, so I went to best buy to pick up a replacement. I first bought a radeon HD 5750 as it got great reviews here, however after getting home I realized my PSU is only 375W so I returned it. I have a Dell XPS 420 which has a PSU rated for 375W but from what I have heard that is the average it can supply and can peak much higher so people recommended getting the 9800GT, which I did. After I got home I realized they had given me the crappier Energy Efficient version and not the full fledged one. So I guess I will be returning it as well since the 9800gtEE from PNY is worse than my 8800 GT was.
Any recommendations on what I should do PSU and Graphics card wise?
Thanks ahead of time for any information and tips.
AWESOME! I was worried about using that card because it needed 75 more Watts then my PSU had listed but you have put my fears at ease! I will grab a 5750 off one of the above linked sites and return this crappy energy efficient card.
I actually have one more question when I search for an HD5750 online there is tons of different brands that all seem to have different specs. I was looking at the first card here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias... the XFX one. Can someone comment on if thats a good 5750 to get or if there is a better one? Really just looking for the best 5750 on the market.
