Wouldnt think so, if thats a P4 then itll be the bottleneck to performance, also the PSU would need an upgrade to handle the 8800.

hello and welcome to geekstogo,
When buying for a graphics cards there is more to look at then Watts. The GTX requires 36A, give us a link to the power supply your thinking of, also I you got a GTX, it's a very high end video card and I don't recommend having a PSU below 600W.
Whats you budget and we can help you get started. Also what do you want to use this rig for, only gaming or do you want to do photo/video editing as well?
James

Hi..

I recently build my Pc. Here in Sri Lanka Everything is in high cost. And finding a 600w Power Supply is not easy. 550W could be bought. Say that I found a 600w power supply, is my computer Spec’s Ok.

Mainly for GAMING, I always play games.

Actually I cannot say a budget, because if my pc specs are ok then I have no problem buying the card. But if it’s not then pointless buying the card without upgrading the system, here in Sri Lanka an Asus 8800 GTX Will cost 65000 Rupees. That’s 650 Dollars. That’s a lot of money for us.

The Asus Company in Sri Lanka told that a 550w Power supply will do, but I have no idea. Is it true? And please let me know is my system spec’s ok to handle this card ….

Thank you……

SHEHAN.

It depends on how many amps are on the rails.
Can you give me a link to your current power supply or one your planning on buying?

No a GTX will not work on that power supply, at peak output only 18A will be administered to the GPU, you need double that.

As warriorscot has already mentioned the GTX will be bottlenecked by that processor.
If I were you I'd just got for the GTS and a better power supply. The GTS shouldn't be bottlenecked nearly as much as the GTX would be. Still the GTS requires 32A and you will need a new power supply.
Give me a link to the site you'd buy from and I'll take a look around.

Hi.

If I buy an 8800GTS 350mb Card with a higher PSU, will it be able to play all this latest games with my system specs.

Example – Test drive unlimited
SpiderMan 3
Tomb Raider Anniversary

** Please let me know this to ?

One of my friends has a normal 3.0ghz intel Pentium. With 1gb of ram, 450w power supply,intel 915 motherboard. He wants to buy a card for gaming, his hoping to buy the Gigabyte Radeon x1950 pro 256mb. Is this a good card, I mean will most of the games work? This is the site i checked it on.
