My capacitors on my GPU blew out today but I already have a new GPU on the way. (Lucky me!) Im upgrading from GeForce GT8600 to HD5700, I was just wondering if i needed to upgrade me PSU due to the capacitor blowing up. I have cheked everything and seems to be fine with PSU and the mobo
I open'd the Desktop right afterward, and the Card was hot as hell? just trying to firgure out couple of things! What shall I ever do?
Please and thanks in advance!
Ohh also i was wondering if i should still take it out and not use my Desktop (kind of hard not to i need my Solidswork and ACad for my ENR work)
P.S. Note to self, dont run Crysis and Acad at the same time
lmao when i saw the title of this, capacitor blowing like that is unusual, but funny! lucky you you get to upgrade now! that psu is plenty for a 5770. you could run a 768mb gtx460 for a bit extra though.
1) Should i start my computer?
2) If i can start the computer can i run it wihtout the GPU?
3) My new card arrives in 3 days(they should ship during the weekend I say we are in recession the people of US should not take weekends off! haha) but yeah should I start the computer and uninstall the drivers before I install the new card.
4) ...? I dont know what to do for 3 days now
But yeah the card got a lil hot I say and it went out in fashion, clam and quite without taking my Mobo and any other parts. Good thing!
That PSU should handle HD5770 just fine, but faulty/bad PSU can make the capacitor went "Ka-BOOM"...
Still on warranty? Then you can RMA your PSu, just for safety...
Yeah I know but I dont have any other way of testing it? And no not under warranty anymore, I made this desktop for Solidworks and Autocad like 5years ago lol.. my GPU was so badass then its a piece of dudu
