GeForce GTX 260 works for Dell Precision 390?

I am currently planning to upgrade the ATI Fire GL V3400 card in my Dell Precision 390 Workstation to GeForce GTX 260 (or something similar for Diablo III). Is there any compatibility issue that I should be aware of? I specifically want to make sure:

1) Is the 375W PSU sufficent?

2) Does Dell Precision 390 Workstation have the required 6-pin x2 power connectors?

3) Dell Precision 390's website below says that it supports up to 512MB graphics memory. Should I worry since GeForce GTX 260 has 896MB?

4) If GeForce GTX 260 does not work, which card would be the best choice for Diablo III in terms of both the performance and the cost?

Thanks a lot! Below is the GeForce GTX 260 and my current Precision 390 configuration. Thank you!

  1. Best answer
    1&2 ) Has enough amperage, only has 1 x 6 pin connector
    3 ) nothing to worry about
    4 ) Not making card reccomendations
    You could run it with an adapter, but you would be better off with a lower power consumption card or a psu upgrade
  2. what is your budget ? the 260 is an old generation card. depending on your budget you clould get a card better than the 260 and with a lower power consumption
  3. You really should get a new power supply, or pick up a card like a HD6670 which will use a lot less power than a 260.
  4. 7750, just saying.....

    Unless you want CUDA for other stuff like video rendering. a GT 520, GT 620, GT 630 any of those 3 should be sufficient
  5. Thanks for all your replies! I am considering the following Radeon HD 6770:

    It seems a good deal (with the rebate), and quite sufficient for Diablo III. Could anyone confirm that it works with Dell Precision 390 Workstation?

    Thanks!
  6. Make sure you have the latest system bios
