So my friend just said he would let me have his Nvidia 8800GTS that he had in his old system. I have everything to properly run it except for a Pentium 4 HT 3.00GHZ in the system. He is willing to sell it for $20.00 and I figured that even with my processor it is still a good buy. Can I just underclock it so it will work with my processor?? or can I just put it in and just deal with the bottleneck??. I figure that at $20.00 I can deal with a big bottleneck. He has only used the card for a month. What do you think?
Yeah, I don't mind if it's not at full potential. I will definatly be getting a new computer in the future anyways. And my PSU is a dell 375W psu with 30A on the 12V rail, so I'm not sure if I'm good there or not but I heard people were able to run some pretty big cards with that PSU.
