Help me in my upgrading journey (shifting from ATI to nvidia)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
To ensure a seamless transition, i need a few answers to my questions please help me guys hopefully i can get things done tomorrow.

right now i have the 256 mb version of the HD 3850, however, i am not satisfied with it.

Im planning to upgrade to a 9800GTX or an iChill 8800GT or a regular G92 GTS

first off, im not sure if the 9800GTX would fit in my case im also not sure if the iChill 8800GT would fit, the iChill version is 1.5 inches bigger in terms of the width of the card.

this is my case:

secondly, will my PSU support all of this? it's an HEC winpower 550 watts..if I OC everything, will it still be enough?

this is my PSU:

the link for the case wont work for me..........anyway ur PSU will suffer with any of those new cards u need a new one

im sure the G92 8800GT needs a minimum 28A on the 12v rail to function correctly its probably even higher for the GTS & GTX
