Basically I have an old DELL C521 and I want to get a new graphics card WITHOUT getting a new power supply.

I believe the standard one is 280w?

Would My computer be able to handle this?

Thanks in Advance.

Prince range is really £50-£80
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY:6150LE Standard and standard 280w Power supply.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Low end gaming, Guild wars and Guild wars 2 when it comes out. Would like good frame rate in GW2, TF2, Cod's Starcraft

Preferred website buy site: Amazon UK


Thanks in Advance.

RajivPatel, the first card you link is NOT low profile.

the 5570 would be on the safe side. Not what i would call high end. But GW games tend to scale back well anyway.

Starcraft is more cpu limited then anything.

You could push for more if you know that psu has the power on its 12 volt rails, but I have no clue the specs dell gives that thing.

I could easily run a Radeon 5570 1GB with a power supply with only 220w.
