Hello, my dell inspirion 531 card expired and i was looking for another one. However i'm somewhat restricted as my powel supply is only 300 watts. and the nvidia gt210 is seemingly the only card that will be compatible. Or thats what i've found. Can anyone tell me otherwise. THe only game i play in Battlefield 2.
You are fine with the dell power supply, the G 210 will only take about 200 Watts of power including the other components on the dell PC approximately. I think it's OK to stay with your old Power Supply, unless it has some issues.
How would a 6570 work on a 300 watt psu when it requires a minimum of a 400 watt?
A 6770 can run on 400watt psu when it requires a 450watt. It is fact when you are using a powerful cpu or other component that require high power. Minimum psu requirement of gpu is based on core-i7 cpu. So you always dont need recommended psu if you dont have a powerful cpu.
