hmm, you are borderline but I think it will still run. The card may not run as fast as it should but I think it will still work.

When you run cpuz under processor what is the code name? Ceader mill, Presler, or Northwood

Ok you are going to be running a little low on power. The computer should still run though. If you want to upgrade your computer in the future then I would upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit) before anything else, like the RAM.

I have a Prescott too! Mine's an Intel P4 630.

I had a 350w PSU and it blew when I added a cheap graphics card, the 400w replacement hasn't blown yet, but I'm still having some tearing and glitches in games. I'm about to swap it for a 430w Thermaltake as they're a good brand. I recommend you go for at least 430-450w.

Well we got one yesterday - he wanted the 7200 one and I showed the man at PC World the specs and he said it would work. We fitted it last night and so far so good - its stopped flashing and I have a happy 16 year old son again.. :whistling: Thanks for all your help Jackflash and everybody else who has helped me on this thread. :blink:
