More about will card work
  1. There's nothing wrong with those choices for the Graphics card and PSU, however, what motherboard do you have? Do you have a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot available to plug the graphics card in to? That graphics card might be bottlenecked by that old of a CPU.

    fine, but why are you wasting your money on such an expensive card and about a cheap cpu.

    I bought another monitor and my integrated card that i currently have is garbage, therefore i need a real card?
  5. ok provide you system specs?

  7. ok, your psu?

    what is that mean? :sarcastic:

    It's a 115-230w... there's a switch on the back to change between the two.
  12. @xtreme5: Don't forget he's planning on getting a new 550W PSU from Antec.

    If you want upgrade your CPU as well as your GPU and stay within that budget, what you could do is get these instead of that video card:

    XFX Radeon HD 7770 - $135
    Intel Pentium G850 - $88

    You could also spend a little more on Sapphire's VaporX version of the 7770 if you wanted to.

    :pfff: no, this is VOLT not watts.

    MR, I know he need a new PSU not 550w 450w is enough.

    yes :whistle:

    no, mate :non: never touch with that thing if you change it to 230v your PSU will be blown up, so be aware of that thing. how many watt is that?

    How many watts? You just said it was volts....

    MANNN! i'm talking about WATTS not VOLTS. I think you are noob in PSU's.
  20. ok, follow my lead take a camera and open the side panel of you CASE and take a picture if you psu especailly from a STICKER. then post it here.

    Yes i'm a noob in PSU's anyways i figured it out its a ATX 350w

    If you know he needs a new PSU, then it's not hugely important that we know what his old one can do, yeah?

    There's nothing wrong with your processor, but you simply won't be able to get the most out of that 560ti - that E6500 will hold it back ('bottleneck' it). By getting a Pentium G and a 7770, you'll end up with a much more balanced system - neither will be holding the other back too much.

    Ok but that 7770 only has 1 dvi (I have dual monitors)
  24. well, 350w enought for you gtx 560ti eats 202w at max load.

    Even though it says a minimum of 500w...

    you can use dual dvi connector like this

    every vendor website state those recommendation for safety purpose.

    No trouble mate, we can fix that. Also, the Pentium/7770 idea still includes that 550W PSU you picked out. So here's what I'd get if I were you:

    Sapphire VaporX Radeon HD 7770 - $150 (this one has two DVI ports! it's also runs cooler than the other)
    Antec BP550 - $50
    Intel Pentium G850 - $88

    This totals out to $288 before rebates ($273 with rebates), and they all have free shipping. This costs right about what the 560ti + PSU costed, too.

    No, no it's not at all. You have to account for the fact that it's probably less than 80% efficient (meaning it'll get 280W at most), and he's got a 65W CPU as well as other components (so we'll round that off at about 90W). Not to mention it's a horrible idea to push your power supply at close to its max load - you could cause it to fail and potentially destroy important bits, like the CPU or GPU.

    Thanks i think i'm going to go with those three, going to be a lot more to install but well see how it goes.

    I'm looking to actually use the dual monitors not just duplicate the main one. Extended.
