Iâ€™m hopefully going to buy a HD4850X2 2GB for my sig rig because Iâ€™m slowly going to be upgrading to an AM3 or Core i7 build in the summer Iâ€™m buying bit by bit starting with GPU to go in my current rig until I upgrade.
My Mobo (P5KPL-AM) is a single PCI-E 16x will the HD4850X2 have enough bandwidth to perform well
I have a 650w Trendsonic power supply SLI cert will I have enough power to run the HD4850X2 or will I need another power supply
P.S. or should I buy a GTX285
The HD4850X2 2GB is faster than the GTX285 1GB plus the HD4850X2 2GB is cheaper
Will the 32bit OS that I have be ok with this card and it memory size.
You'll do great. One pci-e 16x is perfect. Just make just your 650w is a good psu and you have at least 11-3/4" of room between your hard drive slots/rails and the back of your case to fit the card. You will love the card. I love mine so much if it broke today, I'd buy another one.
