Well, I still have some questions regarding the upgrade so I hope you can have a look again
I've come accross a deal with the radeon 5770 at 79$, and from the reviews I read, It looks like it might be a better investment than the 6670. However, looking at specs, they are suggesting a 450 W PSU.
My PC contains :
1 Single HDD
1 Q6600 Quad core processor
2 2Gb RAM slots
1 19 in 1 media reader
1 DVD drive, rarely used while playing games ( thanks Steam )
And that's about it. In your opinion, does this kind of system reaches as high as 350 W under load conditions such as gaming requires ?
Looking at the 5770, they say the Max Wattage is 108 W. So it's effectively a 59 W increase over what I'm using in the hardest conditions right now.
I checked the case and it handles a double slot card. I also have a free 6-pin PCI express connector.
Will I fry the whole thing with this card ?
Otherwise, I saw that the GTS 450 recommends a 400 W PSU. Could that be a better option ?
