N-Alvorix-rs880-uATX AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.80 ghz quad core 4.00 GB 64 bit 250w power supply Currently rocking the ATI hd 4200 integrated. So whats the best GPU I can safely run on this system? And also what kind of performance could I expect using it in conjunction with your suggested card?

GimmeSammich May 28, 2012 2:27:52 AM The Radeon site recommends 400w or greater for the HD 7750, and other sites recommend 450w. Could 250w PSU really run it safely? pit_1209 May 28, 2012 2:38:52 AM try this site for that matter http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp Assuming your psu is a good one that delivers the right wattage and all that stuffs. _zxzxzx_ a b U Graphics card May 28, 2012 4:14:00 AM @OP, Could you post the amps for your PSU? Some 250w PSUs have pretty good amps. GimmeSammich May 28, 2012 5:52:03 AM Every specifications I've read via google on it simply state 250w power supply. Doesn't name the type of PSU, or it's amps. It's the HP Pavilion p6654y FWIW. nacos May 28, 2012 7:18:19 AM I have a computer running a radeon hd 7750 with a 300w power supply. I haven't had any problems at all. _zxzxzx_ a b U Graphics card May 28, 2012 7:31:25 AM GimmeSammich said:Every specifications I've read via google on it simply state 250w power supply.

GimmeSammich June 6, 2012 6:17:31 PM Ok I finally looked at the PSU it's the Bestec ATX-250-12z here's what I found about ampage DC Outputs (Amps Max/Min): +3.3V (18/0.3A), +5V (25/0.5A), +12V (14/0.0A), -12V (0.8/0.0A), +5VSB (2.0/0.0A) _zxzxzx_ a b U Graphics card June 7, 2012 2:07:21 AM You might just be able to pass with any card which does not require an extra power connector but I would go for a card with a TDP of <60w to be safe. GimmeSammich June 7, 2012 4:37:30 PM You're speaking alien to me right now, no idea what that means lol. Best solution maneeshthegamer June 7, 2012 5:31:38 PM Well get either a hd 7750, hd 6670, or lower. They require only around 60 W at full load.
