Will this work?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Looking to upgrade my video card.

Right now I am looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

PSU is coming soon. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

mobo, ram and proc will be a month or 2 away.

so my question is if my current mobo, in sig, will support this card. whether it will or not, give me some suggestions please. looking to stay around this pricepoint. I really only play L4D2 but will be looking at MW3, BF and Portal 2. Thanks for the help!

Assuming your motherboard has a PCIe x16, which it appeared to have when I looked it up, then yes it will.

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZMTPEW/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_5?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER"]This is a better card[/ame] for the same money, it is shipping in 1-4 weeks currently but has been coming in and out of stock so you may be able to get it quicker.

you are right on the motherboard. thank you. That card you linked is $30 more and I was under the assumption that it runs hotter. Is that correct?

Spend $20 more on at least a GTX 460 SE, or a full GTX 460 non SE that's on sale. Full fledged 460 not on sale will run you $200, you won't regret it, significantly more powerful than the 450.

But, spending $20 more on at least a GTX 460 SE makes absolutely all the sense in the world, significant performance increase for a very small amount of money.

SE just means a slightly lower clocked version of the full 460


You're currently using a 9600 GT, I had the 1GB model of that and it worked great for what I used it for, 2 months ago I upgraded to what I have in my sig and it was amazing increase, 6x more powerful, literally. So I know the hardware you're coming from.

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZMTPEW/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_5?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER"]The card I linked you[/ame] to is only $5 more than the one you were considering both after rebate, it is also about 60% faster so it really is a much much better deal. As Ascii alluded to the 550ti really isn't a good value for money at the moment. The 460 I linked you to will run a small amount hotter but still runs very cool and very quiet, heat and noise are not really concerns with the 460.

EDIT: Actually I take that back the 460 1Gb I recommended will actually run both cooler and quieter than the 550ti!!! I thought that the 460 would be a little hotter because it is so much more powerful but it's actually quieter and cooler as well, that really makes the 550ti look even worse

Ascii I recommended a [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZMTPEW/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_5?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER"]460 1Gb[/ame] non-SE to him for much less than $200, it's only $130 after rebate. Also the 460 Se is actually even more cut down than the 768Mb, it has approximately [ame="http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gainward/GeForce_GTX_460_SE/"]1/4 of it's die disabled[/ame] whereas the other 460s only have about 1/8 disabled. The SE should be avoided unless it is at a killer price, and when you can get the full 460 1Gb for $130 that I recommended there's really nothing else worth considering at that price point.

EDIT 2: OCN keeps breaking my links, Ascii what I was saying is check out that link, it shows that the SE has ~1/4 of it's core disabled whereas the other non SE 460s only have ~1/4 disabled.

Thanks for the help and advice man. Your link was bringing me to the circuit city version through amazon, which doesnt contain the rebate and is $5 higher. I just had to click on the amazon version on the sidebar. good looking out.

I didn't disagree with your 460 recommendation, I was simply explaining the base logic to him, that literally $20 more could get him a card that dominates the 450, or if he could find one on sale he could get an even better full fledged 460 for a very small price increase.

Also explained the base difference between the 460 SE and the 460, performance wise and price wise, and why he should be looking at these based on his budget.

You literally told him the exact same thing I did, but I was just explaining the logic to him as I stated above, but, you found a full 460 on sale for $5 more than the original card he was looking at, which was the 450.

Your recommendation was never questioned.

That card is kind of weak (GTS 550 Ti). And you could probably run four of them off of that power supply.
