  1. Hey guys,
    I currently have a Dell Dimension 8100 specs are:
    250 watt power supply
    P4 1.5 ghz 256 kb cache
    Dell custom mobo of the Intel i850
    Nvidia GeForce 2 MMX 32 megs
    512 MB Ram (RD-RAM, PC-800)

    I want to upgrade my graphics card and I'm not sure if my power supply can handle it. Right now my choices are:
    GeForce 4 Ti-4600
    9600 pro or XT

    Feel free to give me advice, or other recommended graphics card.
    Thanks

    I am running (as you can see) a 9600xt and I have no voltage issues with my power supply. I am about to upgrade it to a 400+ watt with a new video card. But ya, a 250 watt will power it as long as you don't have like 4 hard drives a 3 CD/DVD ROMs

    Oh, and go with the 9600xt, it supports Direct x 9 and the Ti only supports direct x 8. they are both great cards but I like the 9600xt more.
