I am wondering if an XFX ati 5550 (1gb) DDR2 card will be safe to run on my HP p6120t?
core 2 duo e7500
250 watt lite-on psu (14a on +12v rail).
I really want to run some older games that my integrated intel g31 will not run (battlefield 2). If this card will not work, will an ati 4350 work? Would a 4350 be much improvement over the current g31 I have for games such as Star Wars Battlefront 1 &2, Empire at War, LOTR Battle for Middle Earth, Battlefield 2)? Thanks in advance.
Suggested ATI Radeon™ HD 5570 and 5550 512MB DDR3 System Requirements
PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard 400 Watt or greater power supply recommended
Certified power supplies are recommended. Refer to http://support.amd.com/us/certified/power-supplies/Page... for a list of Certified products
Minimum 1GB of system memory
Installation software requires CD-ROM drive
DVD playback requires DVD drive
Blu-ray™ playback requires Blu-ray drive
The recommended PSU is for the entire system so I think that ur current PSU isn't enough while the 4350 needs 300W PSU (see here) even the 4350 could not work.
