Hey guys, i have a Dell Studio XPS desktop computer with a 350 Watt PSU and i wanted to upgrade my 512mb Nvidia GT 530 graphics card to a more powerful one, does anyone have any ideas? also i called dell and they said i cannot upgrade my PSU so im stuck at 350W am i SOL or do i have other better options
Dell does make some pretty solid and competent power supplies. As far as 350W is concerned, there are plenty of cards you can opt for which are better than the GT530.
To make things as simple as possible, get a graphics card without the need for auxiliary power. Benefits include not having to worry about 6/8 pin power connectors and less worries about power requirements.
