Hey guys! I'd like to know if you get all the necessary power leads and that with your graphics card so when you get a graphics card you can just put it in or would i maybe have to get a new power supply aswell because mines is quite dated now anyway and only 600W... I thought about getting two 460's also but i think my motherboard doesn't support SLI, i don't know so i think i might just get the 5870..
Your motherboard only has one PCI-E lane so no SLI or Crossfire. I couldn't find any info on your PSU, could you look at the label on the PSU and see how many amps and watts it has on the +12V rail(s)?
If so then you'll need to buy a new PSU if you want to power a card like the HD5870. The PSU has most of its power on the +3.3V and +5V rails which isn't much good for todays PC's. Modern PSU's have almost all of there power on the +12V rail(s).
It does have 2 x PCI-E 6 pin connectors so it might power a GTX460, However I wouldn't risk it, Never heard of Zoostorm before.
Nah im forgetting that idea now.. keeping my same mobo but getting a 480 i think , a new PSU and new case and windows 7, because i think im better waiting till the new socket and cpu's come out next year instead of investing in an new dead socket..
