I recently purchased a new gpu in order to run Guild Wars 2 at more than 10 fps. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The card worked great and the game was beautiful, but the following day my computer had trouble starting and i found that the psu was not enough to support the gpu. While in game the fan had sounded like a vacuum and i was informed by multiple sources that my psu was also dying. In any case, i require a new one and have little idea what i'm doing.
So on that note i think i'm set, but i don't know if it's compatible with my system whatsoever. My cpu model is an HP Pavilion p6616f http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume... and i've made no hardware changes to it other than adding the gpu, which has currently been removed. It's been about 3 years since i purchased it.
Is the psu i'm looking at compatible with my system? If not, can anyone offer any recommendations? Assistance would be much appreciated.
the VP 350 (delta) and VP 450 (FSP) use different platforms with the VP450 being the better of the two and a solid budget PSU. more then capable of running a mid level video card much less the AMD 6570
The Corsair CX43 V2 is also a good performing, budget PSU and a phenomenal deal after MIR. If you don't mind the wait for the rebate, then it will cost less in the end, has one more year of warranty, and is definitly sufficient for your PC. If you've already purchased the VP450 then it's no worth returning/exchanging it for the CX430 IMO.
