I'm not too keen on computer hardware and I had been considering buying a new graphics card. I was really interested in the XFX Radeon HD 5830 and was wondering if it would work on my pc. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33 GHz
DDR2 4 GB RAM
500 Watt Power Supply
Spend a little more money and get a decent power supply in my opinion, that is the one and only part in your computer you should spend a little extra cash on. However, yes 500w would be enough for a 5830.
It would work with the powersupply I suggested. I have no idea if it will work on your generic one. Kind of taking a shot in the dark there. You have enough watts and amps to run it, but the quality of that PSU is unkown and anything can happen.
