Ive been doing all of this remotely.. which is a total nightmare at times. Anyway, I checked an image of the motherboard Belarc said was in the machine at it looks like my only option is pcie x1
so now I am back at square one.. any ideas for a dual display pcie x1 board in the 50 dollar range that will just light my boss' world on fire and get me a raise?
thanks as always
I checked Ebay, Tigerdirect, and Newegg, and these were the two cheapest and best options without getting a card that was 7+years old.
The top is the better card by far, however it is a normal size card so it won't fit all cases. The bottom card will fit the slim style cases as seen in a lot of computers in the work place. If your boss has a normal size case get the top card, but if he has a slim case then get the bottom. Hope this helps you out bro.
okay sorry for the bump.. but hes putting pressure on me to order today and i have so much 'real' work to get done that i cant devote enough time to speccing out the parts..
I remember a PSU power requirement calculator I saw once.. i can use that but i have no numbers to put into it. Does anyone know what kind of power the LITEON PS-6301-6 [DELL] puts out? if its adequate for XFX HD-645X-ZQH2 Radeon HD 6450, and will a pcie 2.1 card work on a mobo printed " PCI-E1_16x " ?
im just afraid that E1 means 1.0 and might be incompatible..
Excellent! I hadn't ordered it yet, but Ill place the order now..
Thanks so much! i needed to get this order in.
Now i just hope it doesnt need any cables from the psu, which im also hoping is strong enough to support the card at all
Thanks again for your help! im glad to get this done before the weekend.
It doesn't need any cables from the power supply. I checked, and their is nothing to plug into. The card shouldn't pull more than about 50w under full load, and the pci slot provides a full 75 w, so you don't have anythang to worry about.
Glad we could help out, and hope everythang turns out well for you.
