Buying card for my PC [detailed info]

This is my PC

I am planning to buy GIGABYTE GV-N440D3-1GI
but i am uncertain about few details

Would my motherboard support it ?
It seems i cover the minimum watt requirements though my PSU doesn't feel very reliable


Any tips please ?

Well, I think that your motherboard will support it, because the GIGABYTE GV-N440D3-1GI does not require an external power connector.. thumb.gif

Your PSU doesn't look much reliable, but I guess a GT440 would run fine on it, given that it is not too much old. And since your motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot, the card will be compatible with it, PCIe 2.0/3.0 are backward compatible, so no worries smile.gif

I'd be wary of the PSU. 400w and only 17a on the 12v? Look into this

psu. It will definitely support the card and allows headroom for overclocking.

PSU is fine for a gt 440. a gt 440 is like a gts 250 in terms of performance and power consumption. although 22-24a is reccomended 17a is fine.

Bought it, installed it, did some SC2 campaign and it rocks



but down the right corner of my desktop i get this message that says

"a problem occurred during hardware installation your new hardware might not work properly."

What is that supposed to mean ? any ideas ?
