Will this graphics card fit my computer? - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ok thanks for all the help so this Force3D HD 4670 is the best card I can get for my computer? and if I do buy this card, do I put it in with my old card or take my old card out and replace it?

Also I have a 7300 LE now (came with computer), so the 4670 is better?

I agree, with that weak of a PSU, you should go for the 4670, as it draws less than 5 amps under load. That PSU is probably at MOST putting out 16-18amps on the 12v rail, and both the 9600GT and 9800GT require more than that,

however, the 4670 is only a few % slower than the 9600GT, and you shouldn't have any issues with it fitting (because its a smaller GPU) or with the PSU. Sounds like a win to me.

Good luck

You will need to take out the old GPU, and put teh new one in teh same slot the old one was in. And yes, the 4670 will be considerably better than your current card.

No Problem
If you have any problems, just post a thread on this forum and I'm sure people will help you as much as they can

The 4670 is a much shorter card, too, so you shouldn't have RAM clamp conflict issues.

An 8500gt will fit without a problem. It's not a big card, and it's definably better than your 7300LE. A Radeon HD 4650 or a Geforce 9500GT/9400GT would also fit. The Radeon 4670/4650 would be the best card for your money considering the size constraints and the power supply constraints.

Most of the less powerful GPU's are much smaller than the "performance" cards. Look for a 4650, 9500GT, 8600GT(or GTS)...anything less than that, and you'll run into problems running any normal game at normal resolutions (have to run at med settings and 1024x768)

This review has the performance of some of those cards listed as percentages of the other ones around it... so you can get a feel of what kind of performance you're looking at.

Good luck
