  1. do i have to post my specs ?
  2. gtx 550ti uses the pciex16 slot.
    If you use an onboard graphic card you'll have to disable that when you use the 550.
  3. yes you have to post your system specs
  4. thanks ! it seems like i was able to use it right ?
  5. and i should also remove the chipset to be able to use the graphic card ?
  6. You can not remove an on board chipset, only disable.
    Your mobo is ok, but also important is if your psu is strong enough. You need at least a 450W psu.
  7. 600W psu ? is that enough ?
    i don't know how to view my specs T.T
  8. 600W should be more than enough.
    You can find your specs like processor, Ram e.d. when you right click on the picto "computer" or " my computer" at your desktop. Then click on the last one on the bottom, it's called "eigenschappen" in Dutch, don't know in English, maybe "settings" ?
    You can also download GPUID-Z and GPU-Z these tell you everything from your system. ( except psu i believe )
  9. thanks ! as long as my psu can provide the card and my slot are compatible i'm hot to go right ?
  10. Yes, but knowing the processor and Ram and stuff is also important. When you only have 2G ram for example the card could be held back a bit by that. It will run tho.
  11. my processor is Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz
    the RAM is 2GB

    maybe i'll also change the RAM
  12. is it affordable ? the DIMM ?
