More about upgrading graphics card
  1. maybe this new card? draws less power. has the molex to 6pin adapter you PS doesn't have. and is a little faster than the 460.... little faster than the 6850 too.

    wow i like that card a lot and its a bonus that it comes with assassins creed 3 :) also it comes with a 6 pin convertor does this mean i dont have to upgrade my power supply?! :)
  5. yes.

    yes.

    i know a lot of people say taht the stock power supply for computers are generally bad is this true with my pc?
  7. in theory it should have enough power. see if you have 2 pare 4pin molex connectors available. and yes, this is where most companies will cut corners, but where don't they?

    The system is powered by a 500 Watt Turbolink branded switching power supply with model number ATX-TL500W-BK. This is a brand that we haven't heard of before. It has two +12V rails with +12v1 being rated at 16 Amps and +12v2 being rated at 18 Amps. This power supply doesn't have any PCIe 6-pin power connectors for video card expansion, which is a bit of a bummer as we always like PCs to have an upgrade path. We took a look around the system and found all the power connectors were used except for one 4-pin molex connector and a SATA power connector.

    so i would have to get a new power supply and recommendations?
  9. thought you were on a budget?

    i don't have time to shop but this would be the minimum I would get for your rig.

  11. if you don't open the case and see what you have we're not going to get anywhere.

    ok let me go check right now sorry i mis understood you
  13. ok well it doesnt look like theres any more left over only one 4 pin so im going to buy the power supply u linked with the graphics card right?
  14. like I said, that would be the minimum. not a bad supply. I could go better but don't know the budget.......... or if that's it.
