Upgrade to Radeon X1650 PRO power consumptions/compatibility concerns

  1. Hi all

    Im considering an upgrade from Geforce 6200 to Radeon X1650 PRO (both AGP) and was wondering whether this card (or the X1950 PRO or Geforce 8000 series for that matter) needed to be powered by the PSU directly and whether standard PSU's that you can now get (having PCI express connectors) are actually compatible with AGP tech?

    Im running a 350W PSU (no brand) which i understand i will have to upgrade. Thinking of the 500W Coolermaster eXtreme power supply (£38)


    Would this paricular item fit the bill?

    Other Specs include: ASUS P4P800SE, P4 2.8GHz, 2GB RAM, S-ATA IDE 320GB HDD, Soundblaster live SCard

    Any comments would be much appreciated
