    hi unreal9400,
    Thanks 4 the reply, can this card assist my psu which is 250w oly....
  3. 250 is too low.
    I would suggest at least upgrading to a 300W minimum or better power supply.
    How many Amps is there on the +12V rail?
    If you are tight on budget I would recommend going with HD 6570 or 6670.
  4. well is states 14 amps, budget is not an issue, i need help whether Nvidia or ATI, is ATI includes any physx technologies....?.
  5. Only Nvidia cards have CUDA and Phsyx technologies.
    Nvidia cards have better driver support than AMD/ATI.
    You should upgrade your power supply first, something like this- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026
    And lastly, what is your monitor resolution?
  6. my budget is $150, i doubt then how games include physx technologies like mafia2 can be met in AMD/ATi, my screen resolution is 1440 x 900.
  7. Best answer
    AMD/Ati cards such as HD 6670 is pci-express 2.1x16
    I heard that 2.1 cards don't work with old motherboard which is 1.0(the motherboard you currently have)
    GT 440 is pci express 2.0x16 card which currently does not have any issue with old pci express 1.0x16 motherboard.
    Make sure you get the GDDR5 version- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121426
    If you want smooth gameplay you may need to lower some settings or play at 1280x720.
    Upgrade the power supply first just to be safe.
  8. my mobo is Asus P5LP-LE (Leonite) ie PCi-e 2.0 compatible....... can it support 2.1... here is what i read

  9. Yes, PCI-E 2.0 cards will work on PCI-E 1.0 motherboard.
    The only issue i see is PCI-E 2.1 cards on PCI-E 1.0 motherboard.
    I heard issues that people encounter when using PCI-E 2.1 cards on PCI-E 1.0 motherboard.
    The GT 440 will work fine since it's a PCI-E 2.0 card.
    14A*12V= 168W for the +12V rail.
    CPU+GPU= 65W+65w=130W.
    This does not include the motherboard and hard drives.
    If you plan to buy a PCI-E 2.1 cards it should be 50/50 chance that it will work with your motherboard.
