the 2 things im considering buying are :
1. a nvidia 7600 GS graphics card (currently using nvidia mx440, ancient ? i know)
2. a 500W power supply unit (currently using a crappy 200 or 250W one)
my current specs are as follows:
windows XP home.
Now the problem is that my motherboard has a 4x AGP slot (aopen mx46 U2 mobo) and the 7600GS is a 8x card. i have heard this combination can work and need advice on this. im getting the power supply because i have read on some forums that the 7600GS needs alot of juice and my crappy 250w psu just wont do.
Im aware that upgrading my motherboard (just for the pci express slot and dual core support) would have been the best option but that would mean upgrading my ram, processor, power supply etc and im sorta just looking for a cheaper upgrade. i can get both the card and power supply for less then 200$ (ordering from australia where im based at)
so what do you guys think?
