Which one should I use? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have the GeForce 6800 XT 512MB DDR3 (PV-T42K-YDF3) which is 256 bit. I did the 3dmark test and got 2249 with the geforce and 1150 with the x700pro.

My current power supply is ATX-1956d b3 which only 163 watt at 12v. Will I see a big difference with a 500 watt or so PSU? I'm battling warm running computer too.

Thanks for all the info. Also my motherboard is a 20 pin, all the PSU seem to be 20 +4, that will fit also right?

yes a 20 +4 means that the connector is 20 pin with a pin that connects right next to the 20 pin but can also be a plain 20 pin.
