Hey guys, I was wondering if I should get a gts 460 or 450. I am running a Core2Duo computer with an ASUS P5KC mobo. It currently has 4 gbs of ddr2 ram but i'm planning on getting ddr3 later on. Anyways, tonight I bought a Corsair CX430v2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and was wondering if it could handle a gtx460 or an equivalent.
gtx 460 uses 2x6pin pcie connector and your psu has only one get an hd 6850 which is similar to the performance of gtx 460 and it only uses 1 pcie connector so you will be fine with it and it will be an good upgrade for you.
couldn't I just get a molex 6pin pci? I was thinking about getting a gts450 because its only 70 dollars after mail in rebate. I was looking into the gtx 460 because of its performance and the fact that there is a 40 dollar rebate.
I was looking into buying this one because it comes with a 40$ rebate and it comes with 1 molex connectors. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
i'll look into those and see when they drop in price. I might just end up getting the 70 dollar msi as a temp card. I wanted the 7770 but it's just out of my price range. I am planning on getting D3 soon (later this month). Right now it's between the 450 and 460. I'm just concerned if my PSU can run the 460, I know for sure it can run the 450
