Hello Forumers,

Im so confused I've googled alot I haven't found an good answer and I am willing to buy an graphics card I have 460W and I want you guys to recommend for me a good high end graphics card and a list of all GPU's I can run even maxed out with an 460 Watts of Power Supply


Intel Core i5 2320 @ 3.0 Turbo 3.3 GHz ( Quad Core )

Caicos AMD Radeon HD 6450 Low Profile ( Came with my Dell XPS 8300 )

8 GB Ram 1337 MHz (2x4)

Razer Anansi Keyboard

Razer Deathadder Mouse

Razer Carcharias Headsets

Dell ST2421L Full HD Monitor DVI-D ( 1920x1080 )

I really wanna run BF3 maxed out :bounce:  :ange:

I can only run the game on very low res and very low graphics :non:  :non:  :non:  :non:  :non:  :non:  :non:

I would recommend the HD 7770 Should be a nice upgrade for you and you should not have a prob with that card and your psu at all

Also if your Psu does not have a pci-e connection you could get an adapter, or go with the Radeon HD 7750

I would like PSU model # before i would step in and make a recommendation. if its the OEM one, your options are alot more limited.

edit: or the picture of the rail sticker would be nice.

It's a DELL OEM psu and hard to find out much more about it. However, DELL uses good psus, especially in the XPS series. You'll be fine with just about any single GPU graphics card you can buy...the exceptions would be real power hogs like the GTX 480. I have that exact machine with a GTX 560ti 448 in it and maxed out it draws less than 300w from the wall.

If I remember correctly this PSU is made by Delta. Delta makes probably THE best power supply!

I don't really have an good camera so I wrote it down here is whats written on the PSU

100-2400 ~ 8A

50-60Hz Output


+12VA = 18A
+12VB = 16A
+12VC = 8A
+3.3V= 17A
-12V = 0.3A
+5Vaux = 2A

EDIT: I have 2 PCI-E 6 Pin Connectors
