Hi, I plan on getting a "EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card" (name extracted straight from newegg), though my current computer stats are the following:
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
AMD Athlon II X2 245
Regor 45nm Technology
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 401MHz (6-6-6-15)
ASRock N68-VS3 UCC (CPUSocket)
HP 2011 (1600x900@60Hz)
1023MB GeForce GT 520 (Gigabyte)
977GB Hitachi Hitachi HDS721010CLA SCSI Disk Device (ATA)
ATAPI iHAS124 B SCSI CdRom Device
NVIDIA High Definition Audio
As you can see, its a paperweight. So, I think all i would need for this card to function would be a new power supply.
What I need, is for you to suggest a cheap and well functioning power supply, along with the other parts you think i might need.
At the moment, i think I might have around $200 for additional parts, though if its absolutely necessary I can save until the next paycheck.
And that processor is going to be a heavy bottleneck for the card. I wouldnt recommend doing it unless you have a better system to do it on.
Being the chump I am, couldn't tell ya. are you recommending a new processor and motherboard? I was thinking of that earlier, though I have no idea of going about and check the availability for the two items to be compatible.
