Is this a good upgrade?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
this gpu - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121399

and this psu - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371016

i plan to upgrade my monitor and get more ram soon.

and i believe that the psu will fit in my dell, correct?

EDIT: this is the inside of my case






so i will move the HDD over to the left.

my psu looks normal sized.

also, i am wondering about this graphic card

since it would only be $90 after MIR, is it a better deal?

Its alright, I have that GPU, and as you can see from this thread: http://www.overclock.net/ati/897609-...-problems.html, you can see that I am having problems with it. It will probably be fine with that PSU, but in all honesty, I would recommend going to a different brand. It will save you the trouble.

You need to OC E7200 abit but the probelm you have a dell computer. before you get them you do need to check the dell case size. 6850 doesn't draw that much, max 130w. That psu in your link is fine but a solid psu can do 33a396w on 12v should be fine. If you want to get a big psu in case you add more components, at similar price, you can have Corsair 550vx, 41a/492w on 12v. Again, please check your dell case first.

Mine regularly hits 37A, and refuses to run on a 30A PSU.

Depending on what you have, X4 620 stock at 95w, it can easily take 170w depending on the voltage after OC. Lets say you have one 6850, it can draw 130w, so this is 300w alone already, plus rest of components, of course it won’t run on 30a. In his case, he can’t OC because of dell board most likely

Based on what you have in sig, everything at stock (4670 max is 60w), if your psu can produce 30a on 12v , it should be fine. Again, if your psu have ‘multi’ rails, you need to find out the combined number but not adding up numbers from each rails.
