i have a an Dell Optiplex 980 i7-870 CPU 8gb RAM 3 Hard Drives with a standard Dell 305w PSU
What decent video card can i put on it? i have 2 problems 1st is my CPU fan is awkwardly close to the GPU slot so the graphic card cant be bulky with a huge fan 2nd is my PSU is just 305w
i was thinking of buyin HD5670 or GT440 HD5670 requires minimum 400w PSU but not sure if it will fit GT440 requires a minimum 300W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 22A) which im not sure i have? but it fits in my PC very well
people say even though HD5670 has minimum 400w PSU requirement, it will work on a 300w PSU perfectly. How true is it?
My dell Optiplex 980 has a 12v on 15a, 305w PSU will ot be enough to power 3 sata hard drives and Geforce GT440 which requieres 300w PSU but needs 12v 22a Please help i have to decide in a few days to buy or not to!!!!!
