I need to replace my 128mb NVidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card (PCI interface) because I'm starting to get problems with screen flashing & blue screen NV4_disp. I tried updating driver & it was worse. I have a Dell Dimension 4600 Series, Intel Pentium 4 processor at 3.0MHz With HT technology and have 2.5GB RAM. I'm not really into gaming & have limited funds. What cards(s) do you recommend ?
I've seen these two at Best Buy; EVGA - GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Graphics Card or PNY - Verto NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB GDDR2 PCI Graphics Card ... recommend either ?? I've seen comments about restrictions, like power, any thoughts on that ?
I was just looking at my user manual and under the Power category it shows Wattage: 250W how does that affect my choice. I've seen 300W & 350W restrictions mentioned in user comments about the graphic card requirements.
Thanks, I'll try that. All other options looked like replacing the power supply first, then getting another graphics card. I appreciate the information. I've actually ordered thru newegg for RAM memory in the past. And "thanks" for the promo code, too !
