Am looking to upgrade the Graphics card in my PC and the PSU will also need upgrading, just not sure if how I am going about it is right?
Not got enough money for a new build but I do like online gaming and want to upgrade the GPU.
My PC is a Medion MD8822 (yes its an ALDI machine ) and is 2 years old. http://www.medion.de/md8822/
I have upgraded RAM to 2x 1GB 1066mhz DDR2
I have checked the phsical size and its tight but with the aid of a flexible riser ( http://linitx.com/vi...hp?prodid=10865 ) this is needed as the MOBO design puts my CPU heatsink too close to the only PCI-E socket on the mobo, this will allow me to move it down a slot or 2.
My main worry is that my budget is tight and I want the cheapest PSU that will cope with the GFX card I choose.
Graphics card I want is the NVidia 260 gtx. ( http://www.overclock.......&subcat=927 )
I read that this GPU requires : System Requirements Minimum of a 500 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 36 Amp Amps.)
Power Connector 2 x 6 Pin.
PSU I found = http://www.ebuyer.com/product/134695
Will this PSU cope with this specification ? I cant see where it gives the amps for the 12V rail.
If not could anyone suggest a cheap but good PSU?
Any further suggestions appreciated ?
