  1. I am trying to think about upgradig my video card to 7800 gs agp because I don't have pci-e yet, but I only have 250W psu, so do you think that this psu is good enough for this card or not?
    I am not going to overclocked this card at all so can someone please let me know if I should buy this card ot not? I can't afford to buy card and psu both at the sametime, I can buy only card for now. Card by itself is going to cost me around $300 dollars. Thaks for your help
    System spec:
    AMD 64 3200+ 2.2 GHz
    1 GB ram (2 x 512) 3200, DDR 2
    Dell 20.1" wide monitor

    I don't know too much about graphic cards, but I know that you definately need a bigger PSU :p

    lol CMH, yes you will look up the specs on the graphic card it self, at least meet the standard, but it is always beneficial to exceed it

    I just bought New Antec smartpower 2.0 500W PSU. And I think that should be more than enough.
    Thanks for help guys.
