You don't go wrong with 6850, go ahead.
Yeah, I did some research and it seems to be the best card I can afford. However my concern is it won't be compatible with my mobo or PSU. Will that be the case or am I all clear to go for it?
Hello, im from Malaysia as well.
Where do you live? I might be able to get you a Sapphire HD6850 for around MYR 650, if you live in the Shah Alam region
There's the normal version and the Toxic version. Toxic would be around MYR 690.
as for your PSU, im not sure about it's true capabilities, check the ratings on it? There should be a sticker there somewhere.
I live in Damansara actually. But don't Sapphires cost only MYR500 now? That's the price I got from Digital Mall in SS14.
My sticker on the PSU reads:
AC input: 110-120/220-240VAC ~ 10/5A 60/50Hz
DC output: +3.3V +5V, +12V1 +12V2, -12V +5Vsb
Max output current: 22A 16A, 14A 16A, 0.8A 2.5A
Max combined power: 120W, 360W, 22W
Total power: 450W
Max peak power: 500W
But I can't tell what's what lol. Someone kindly enlighten me?
Oh, and I read on AMD's official website that a 500W PSU is recommended for 6850. Do I need to upgrade on mine or can the 450W get by?
