If you can match ur card with a card with one with lower wattage then ur in luck. If not a Powersupply is cheap and if your getting a new PC so it shouldn't add on much dinero, but if you have a dell use DELL..fo shizzle.
--I'd go vista if you can, it sux now but everything they first put does
--doesn't dell have a good vid card option?
I know, me again
Well, I am thinking about getting a graphics card:
Interface PCI Express x16
Chipset Manufacturer NVIDIA
GPU GeForce 7600GS
Core clock 400MHz
RAMDAC 400 MHz
Max Resolution 2560 x 1600
SLI Supported Yes
Cooler With Fan
Operating Systems Supported Windows 2000/XP/XP x64/MCE 2005
System Requirements Minimum of a 350 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current r recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 18 Amps.)
Minimum 400 Watt for SLI m with +12 Volt current rating of 20 Amps.)
Also getting a new Dell:
Dimension E520 Small Mini-Tower: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6400 (2.13GHz, 1066 FSB) Genuine Windows XP Media Center 2005
2 GB DDR2 Non-ECC SDRAM 533MHz (2 DIMMs)
305 Watt DC Power Supply
Although I wouldn't be using it for games but rather for graphics & photo editing etc. I am wondering after looking at the minimum req. of the graphic card (which says 350 watt) and the Dell I'm getting has 305 watt, am I throwing myself into deep trouble? If so, what video card would be ideal for my system?
Please help!!! I will appreciate your help & suggestions.
