new "old "graphics card

  allanon 20:55 13 Apr 2011

My old 8800GT card has just died. I have$ a500W PSU, and only 1x 6 pin power connector. I cannot afford to replace the PSU so I am stuck, i assume with one of the older GPU's. I am thinking about getting a 800GTS 640 MB card and I wonder whether the PSU is powerful enough?. Does anyone have any other ideas?.

Why not check out a Computer Fair for a second hand one if one near you. You can pick them up very cheap as no body wants old bits

noted with thanks. I meant any other ideas of alternative graphics card options. I should really read my messages before posting them !
