Upgrade a 7600GT 250 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: July 15, 2010 5:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share PIntocas July 14, 2010 11:45:58 AM Hi. I have a 7600 GT and i have a big problem. When i use the GPU in a game or something similar, she always crash my pc (everything stop, without many collor points in the monitor - artefacts). But this only happens if i have made something before in the pc (open any software or even firefox). When i reboot... if i play something everything seems ok. It's a little strange! The graphics stay always at 58º/60/ at 30% rotation. Seems a lot but i thing it's normal for this GPU. I have 4 fan in pc. 2 out and 2 in with a controller fan. AMD 64 Athlon X2 + 4200 MSI K9N Neo v2 RAM 2 gh Kigston 533 1gbx2 Power LC 420H Sata 250 Gb Hitachi Can anyone help me please? Could be the power? What can i do to solve this problem. Could be a new HD5670 a good solution for my pc? But maybe only with a new PSU? Hope something could help me. Thanks.

PIntocas July 14, 2010 1:15:25 PM How can i reset the card from the mother-board? My PSU have only 15A to 12V. You think it's enough? Related resources 7600gt be an upgrade ?

PIntocas July 15, 2010 8:56:31 AM Well. In ATI site, the minimum requered to the HD5670 is a 400W. Mine is a 420W but not real. In this test seems only need about 300W. raiyus13 July 15, 2010 12:26:54 PM those ratings in the site are just for safety... PIntocas July 15, 2010 1:55:33 PM I'm afraid because my PSU only have 15A in 12V, something like 180W. raiyus13 July 15, 2010 4:30:45 PM you don't need ext power supply for a HD5670.........you can always give it a try before investing on a PSU. PIntocas July 15, 2010 5:15:47 PM ...and how i know it's all ok the power supply! Anything could go wrong? Or just don't work if have nos sufficient power? raiyus13 July 15, 2010 5:23:40 PM there will be no harm to any components......at the most you will get no display if your psu is insufficient...
