I'm looking at boosting my GPU power for some pretty mid range gaming. Dont need unbelievable perfect graphics but would like to run some higher end games pretty compitantly, though I've never done it before and trying to work out everything can be pretty confusing.
I'm looking at an ATI Radeon HD 6850, its within my price range and as far as I can tell pretty much what I need.
I've a feeling my motherboard, a Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3 Basic Micro ATX Motherboard, will be limiting me a bit here though, some advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
I'd be willing to stretch to a new motherboard if it was worth it though I havnt got a clue where to start.
All this running with an Interl i-1500k at 3.3 GHz by the way!
I knew that was a very weak PSU. And it was a bad sign when I couldn't find the home page.
But no PCI-e 6pin graphics card power lead and only 1 free molex pin free just confirms is a super budgety PSU. It's probably for the best to upgrade the PSU.
Yea I knew I was cutting it fine but had hoped it would be just enough to see my through. Should of planned ahead a little more on the original buy, but there you go, live and learn!
Will look into boosting the PSU and will go ahead with the new Graphics card.
Thanks very much, you've only educated me but diagnosed more about my PC from x miles away than 4+ hours of my own research has managed!
Great advice and well worth the "master" ranking!
