Hi.I am really new to computer hardware stuff.So I'm sorry if I say something wrong.
I recently spent 450$ for upgrading my computer.The only thing that I didn't replace is my graphic card (GeForce 8600 512mb).I wish to replace it with a decent graphic card like a Gtx 560 or 470 or 6850 or any other card which is powerful enough to play Battlefield 3 on ultra.
But the shopkeeper said that I will have to upgrade my PSU (which is 450W as of now) to a more powerful PSU of reputed brands like cooler master or corsair.I said fine.But then he said that I should also change my cabinet because the wires from PSU's of all reputed makes have very thick wires and since my cabinet size is small,it would lead to insufficient cooling and related problems.He then said that the cabinet also needs to be of a reputed make since local brands always make small sized cabinets.He said that the best card that I could fit in the present cabinet would be a hd 7750 1gb.
I really don't have enough cash (around 200$) to spare for the PSU and cabinet.Please suggest the best option for me.Cant I use a cheap PSU of local make? Is it compulsory to change the cabinet? Or at least recommend the best graphic card which can run on a 450w PSU and max out bf3 (if that is even possiblel).Please help me out.
Thanks a lot in advance.I really appreciate your help.
I cant exceed 1440 x 900 resolution on my monitor.So I think 560 would be enough.And the dimensions of the casing are 41 cm height and 39cm length.I'm sorry I don't have a camera with me or else I would have attached a photo.And I'm from India by the way.I think 660 is out of my budget.The total would go upto 1000$ and thats a lot of money in my country's economy.
also search in flipcart.com its an indian site like newegg.com you will find better deals there than in local shops.
But first I would recommend that you look in your local shops for prices and then look in flipcart.com, if the price is lower in local shops than the online site, go for it or else vice versa.
I know that site.I buy all my games from flipkart. Its the best for games.But hardware prices are costly compared to shops.So I will get a 7850 and a PSU after a few months.Thanks for all your replies.
