Upgrading to a Visiontek radeon 6850 - Page 4

Only noob is you, sorry if that sounded harsh. No one said to get 700w at all. You must be seeing things.
Like I said, just cause a PSU says 500w, dont mean it. Especially the Rocketfish one.

I would like to know exactly which model wrsj77 actually has. As for the CPU it might say it will work, but can you say for sure 100% that it will work. Have you tested it yourself?

way to expensive.... 175 plus tax? Might as well get a 6870 from newegg or amazon. the sapphire 6850 is 150 on amazon. the sapphire 6870 from amazon is 165 or you can buy a used 6870 for 155 from the amazon warehouse. No tax free shipping.

What case is your HP is in. What is the exact model of your case?
Did you measure to make sure it will fit inside the case.

Unless the current bios on the board supports that chip. Calling AMD is not going to help, as they wont know which version your mobo bios is.
You need to contact HP instead, and ask them.

hp are ******* that read from a script they told me nothing I didn't see on the website ,which is probably what they we're reading from they could't tell me if it would support this processor since it wasn't on the motherboard spec list thjey have on the website,so I asked then give me the number for pegatron so I could call them,they said they didn't have that number and suggested I called amd.Hell i knew more about the dang processors than them it seemed and they are suppose to be techs....damn shame

The mobo is made by Asus for HP. But the bios is upto HP to have it working to support newer CPU.
Just cause the socket type says it support AM3 95w, dont mean that it does.
Seen it too many times, people upgrade there CPU to find it dont work, unless a bios update is needed.

I mean if you had a custom built system, then help is much easier.

We dont know what case your system is in. is it a slim line model, standard atx. is there enough room to support the 6850.
All these are just valid questions, to help you make sure that your not wasting your money.
