So i`m about to buy a GTX 650 or 650 ti. I`m currently running a gt 440 my question is about the 650 ti`s tdp. The non ti version has a 64w tdp (1 watt lower than my current gpu) and the Ti version has a max tdp of 110w. I know my computer can handle the non ti version but for 30$ and extra performance i rather buy the ti version if my computer can handle it.
These are my pc specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8 Ghz
3G Ram (i will upgrade to 4g)
Windows 7 32 bit (i will upgrade to 64)
400w Antec PSU
CPU-Z (cpuid) says my CPU has a max tdp of 65w i was wondering if that is the max tdp i can run on a gpu or is it not relevant? Any help or information you provide is appreciate it.
I don't see a reason why not. Both cards need a single 6 pin PCIE power cable cable. As long as your PSU has that then power wont be an issue.
You will probably get a restriction in Max FPS with your CPU but for $30 extra I would take a punt.
As long as you are using a reasonable resolution 1920 X 1080 would be good here, then I don't see why you shouldn't get a really nice performance boost from the 650Ti.
My PSU has that 6 pin connector just hanging out with nothing to do. I`m just concerned with the GPU MAX TDP i wouldnt want it to over heat on my cpu. I`m still not fully knowledgeable with TDP and all that stuff. I was thinking on upgrading my gpu to a 500w or a 450 just in case. Oh and yes i`m running a 23 `in LED monitor 1080p.
