Simple question. what are the side effects to installing such a big card with such a little PS. I know its not recommended, friend is desperate for some better graphics without spending much to improve his crappy HP.
Will it work? And if so, what will be the damage down the road to warn him about?
thanks for the help guys. I abandoned that idea quickly lol. Looking to upgrade his PSU now... for as cheap as possible... makes me nervous.
Can anyone recommend a decent cheap PSU... that can handle the 8800GT and a modest system, he doesnt have much in it... just a simple HP comp. He isn't ready to buy a new comp/build but wants this card, and needs a new HD.
So good PSU that won't die in a couple months? Under 50 bucks, thats as high as he is likely to go. He knows the risks of cheaper PSU.
