Having some trouble pulling up the specs on your power supply, can you tell us its 12V ratings?

Couldn't find any info on it.
This is all I got. (+3.3V & +5V=150W Max) (+3.3V & +5V & 12V1 & +12V2 = 440W max)
It says 460W , 500W peak

What else do you want

That does help! Can you read the Amp ratings off the PSU? For example, on mine it says 20A under 12V1 and 20A under 12V2.

460W(500W PEAK 1.5sec.per 30sec.:+12V1 17.5A , +12v2 17.5A)


+3.3V 30.0A
+5V 28.0A
+12V1 15.0A
+12V2 16.0A
+5Vsb 2.0A
-12V 0.5A

Hope this helps

Hmm....is changing the PSU an option? I'm not too happy about that brand.

I'd recommend the GTX 460 1gb would be a good call. Here's one for 199 after Mail in rebate:

Even an HD 5770 would be a good choice for 139:

If you wanna go higher, the GTX470 is a great card, though it runs hot! Plus, you'll need a higher power unit for that (650W)

For your resolution, I'd strongly suggest the GTX460 1gb. If you're looking at going the HD route then the 5770. Both will more than serve your purpose.

EDIT: Why I would recommend the GTX460 over the 5770 is coz the 460 sits on a 256-bit bus while the 5770 is on a 128-bit bus.

Yes, that helps a lot!

Ok, looking at that I'd say you can get a 4850, a 5750 or...a 5770 at a push. Those are some solid cards that won't disappoint.

At that resolution I would suggest a 5770 or a 450, as both cards are under 150$ now and are able to play games on high with at least 2xAA(Possible 8xAA for games before 2008) with only a single 6pin need.
How many 6pin connectors does it have?

I suppose if it doesn't have any you could get a molex to 6 pin adapter.
