Trying to update my PC. A shiny new Graphics board, but until it arrived, I never thought about the PSU.
As I say the box says I need a 450 watt. The card has 2 connections to the power it seems! My PC has a 360watt PSU. Can anyone say what will happen if I don't spend £40+ on another PSU, and try it out with the present PSU.
Thanks. I've been looking at reviews, and it seems that as always you get what you pay for. However, I am a bit woried that I could end up with a PSU that is not suitable,
My new Graphics card is a Saphire X1950 Pro AGP. I have 2GB of Memory. Also 2 SATA hard drives and 2 CD/ DVD drives. Looking at the specs is really clear to me. I am fancying the Coolermaster IGreen 500W PSU - 85% Efficiency ATX12V v2.2 120mm Fan, but would it be OK for my use.
Thanks. A bit pricey perhaps! But it does seem to have all the right connections, which is not at all clear on the 500w one. There is this one click here, not a 'Green job', but it seems to have the same connectors as the Ebuyer special, and at a much lower price, however probably noisy.
