    That card can running with 300W PSU and good for 19" monitor, also it MUCH better than your 8400GS. It only cost you about $100.

    i dont know what psu is?
  5. Power Supply. Its The Big Unit inside the case, usually at the top of the case. Will have all the power/hdd wires coming from it, going to your motherboard, optical drives hard drives etc..

    oh ohk m yet to buy a cabinet.. currently m having 400w
  7. So what exactly that 400W? We need more info...
    Generic 400W can't run HD4870 or HD5770 properly...

    To be safe, i suggest HD5670, that card doesn't need a lot power and a decent upgrade from your 8400GS.

    ohk so by all replies here, i feel that ati radeon is better than nvidia...
    ohk can i play nfs shift in it? or games like that, i dont need it for hardcore gaming like crysis and all, but basically i need it to run photoshop cs5 extended smoothly which lags in this graphic card and play some games as like nfs, prince of persia n all
  9. Yes, HD5670 or GT240 is a WORTH upgrade from your 8400GS, you'll see a HUGE performance increase...
    YEs, you can play those games with a decent setting with that card. :)

    ohk thnx a ton buddy
  11. you can buy nVidia GTS 250...!! in Indonesia the price around 110-130 bucks..!! it's better than ATi Radeon 4850 dude...!! I use the GTS 250 OC Edition 512 Mb from MSI... and its fantastic for mainstream gamer...

    try it..!!
  12. Who's from Indonesia?

    HD4850 or GTS250 is better than HD5670 but it require 450W minimum with 6 pin power connector. I doubt the OP PSU have it (it only 400W)...
  13. me.. i'm from indonesia...

    but my brother use hd4850 with psu FSP SAGA II 400w with regular mainboard (not highend) but its still running... and athlon II x2 255 processor...
  14. Well, i'm from Indonesia too... :)

    But running HD4850 or GTS250 on generic 400W PSU is not recommended. It could fail anytime and can take everything (broke) inside your PC...
  15. also i have a major problem, not all variants are available in india[delhi].. they don't have gt 240 in the largest computer market also.. all they give is 2-3 to chose.. i guess i'll buy one with dx 11 and whats latest.. i have no other choice
