Hello, I was wondering if I could some professional expert input on whether or not my Acer Aspire M5620 Desktop PC can handle to XFX RADEON 5770 HD graphics card.
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor: Intel Core Quad CPU Q6600 @2.40GHz
BIOS v: 2.5
PSU: 250w Industry Standard (GOING TO UPGRADE TO 550W)
RAM: 3GB DDR2
Expansion Slots: 1 PCI Express® x16 slot
1 PCI Express® x1 slot
2 PCI slots
Chipset (i dont know if this means MOBO or not): Intel G33 + ICH9R
My second biggest concern is the size of my chassis.
Desktop, 7.1" (180mm) W x 17.4" (441mm) D x 14.2" (360mm) H
Is that really going to be the most ideal PSU?
I have this huge cylindrical fan to the bottom right of my PSU (if your facing it)
Will that corsair PSU properly fit without any moving of anything in my tower?
Can you tell me the make and model of your tower (case), going by the dimensions you listed the PSU should fit fine, The PSU i linked to earlier is fairly small but without knowing the make and model of your case I can't say for sure if it'll fit.
appears to be the same product, just different companies.
Its certainly not the same product, every company makes PSU's using different components, Corsair have a reputation for high quality and reliable products, so although both PSU's are 500W does not mean they are the same product. I highly recommend you invest in a quality PSU as its argueably the most important component in a PC.
