Out of the following video cards, which would be best for gaming?
- eVGA GeForce 6600GT 256MB PCI-Express x16
- eVGA GeForce 6800XT 256MB PCI-Express x16
- eVGA GeForce 7600GS 256MB PCI-Express x16
I have a Gateway 505GR. It comes with 1024MB of 400DDR Memory (PC3200). It is 2 sticks of 512MB that are duel channel. It has 2 open slots. Can I add any old 2x512MB PC3200 duel channel kit to get 2GB of duel channel memory? I was thinking of getting GeIL Value 1GB (2x512MB) Duel Channel Kit. Would this be fully compatible with my system to have 2GB of duel channel memory running at PC3200?
Any help on either question would be greatly appreciated.
Any alternatives are welcome. However, I am looking to spend under $150 on the video card, and under $75 on the memory.
Well, I found out that the graphics card I am leaning toward, the 7600GS, requires at least a 350W PSU. I only have a 300W PSU. So now I need a new PSU as well, if I am to get that card. I probably will get a new PSU anyways, just to be sure I have enough power. (Other cards say MINIMUM 300W PSU, so it's better to be safe.) I am thinking of this Cooler Master 450W PSU. Sound good?
