Geforce 210, in need of an upgrade - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Make sure his power supply can handle a $200 videocard, most systems that come with a gt210 only have a 300w power supply. Might have to upgrade both.

Alrighty.

Some more info about his rig.

Intel Core i7-2600 CPU 3.4GHz,
8 Gb Ram
1TB Hard drive
300w PSU

So will the recommendations earlier in the post work with his current rig?

EDIT: more info.

Board: ECS H61H2-M2 1.0
Bus Clock: 400 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 4.6.4 02/11/2011

EDIT: Pic,

a big no no.. the psu wont be able to cope with a 6950 or a 560ti.... you need something bigger with 35+ amps (could be wrong) on the 12v rail..

A $50 psu + $150 videocard would still be a huge upgrade. The most powerful card I would consider safe for 300w would be something like a gt240.
