Hey guys, I'm looking to replace my 6450 in my XPS 8300 with a better card, which is why I am here.
With that being said, can anyone recommend a card that I could put in WITHOUT changing the power supply?
(From what I remember, the 8300 comes with a 460W PSU, so I have a choice of cards...right?)
Not because I recommend this, but to let you know it works: I installed a 560ti 448 in my wife's 8300 with the 460w psu (it turns out to be a Delta model) and it works fine. The whole system draws less than 300w from the wall.
I love the card, but there are cheaper faster models now and the 660 should be just around the corner.
Thanks for all the replies guys! I'm assuming, (hopefully) that all the XPS 8300 are all about the same, so I'd like to hear from anyone who's successfully upgraded one.
Also, I have a budget of ~$150, so I'd like to hear your guys' input as well.
Haven't gotten around to opening the case, but hopefully any other XPS 8300 owners can share some info.
