PSU/Video card question.

By Fried_sushi
Jan 7, 2008
  1. I am currently running a 6800 ultra and its dieing on me. I was thinking about:
    Radeon X1650GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X IceQ Turbo

    The reviewers all say "You need a 450w psu". Thats upping my investment a lot if I have to buy a PSU also. Anyway, The 6800 ultra ran great for years and its VERY power hungry. I'm not sure the type of PSU I have and it doesnt seem to have any info on it. It came with the case. A 2004 aspire. Do you guys think I'm ok to get the new card? Is the info on the top of the psu? Does that card suck anyways?

    The last line describes the card's performance perfectly. Get a 7600GT and save yourself some trouble. It pulls less power and delivers on par (or greater) performance than the X1650GT.
