I want to get a 9600gt for my dell inspiron 531 which only has a 300psu. I have a amd 4400 dual core 2.3 2gigs ram so would the card run on my 300 psu? Also where does the 6pin pcie connector go from where to where? does it connect from video card to psu or from video card to motherboard

lol you serious it smoked on you? Well im only buying from frys so anyone have any recommendations? remember its a dell inspiron 531 so i can't fit some huge ass psu i believe.

Make sure it can fit a standard ATX12v psu.


yes has to from frys

If you're stuck on shopping at Fry's, they have a pretty decently priced Antec Earthwatts 380w. That PSU has 27a on the 12v rail as can be seen here (12v1 + 12v2 = 324w max load, divided by 12v, equals 27a.)


so are you saying a 380 psu can run a 9600gt or 9800gt?

well i dont need suck a kick ass video card when i only have a 2.3 amd dual core lol it would sorta be an overkill. Many why did my 8600gt have to die on me..... i wouldn't have to upgrade if my card didn't die and im stuck with an onboard 6150E for now... which even lags in counter strike source

Dell and other such companies underrate the PSUs they install in systems (looks better on them, cause it would appear the computer would be running with less power).

The PSU might have another 100W in it, depending on your luck, otherwise maybe 50W or even none). Try it and see what happens...

according to the picture of railings and v i posted i don't
