Does the 9600 GT card that you have require a supplemental 6 pin PCI-E power connection from the PSU.

I will see what if any specifications I can find for the 400W Dynex PSU.
Read the Conclusion here and you wont have any trouble seeing why the brand is not recommended.

The 9600 does require the 6-pin connector and the GT 610 doesn't. And as far as the PSU I don't have any cash to buy a new one so no other options atm.

The GT 610 and the Dynex PSU are your best option, I would keep a regular check on your temps and voltages and when you are able to swap in a quality brand bronze rated 500W PSU and return the 9600 GT and see if it is ok.

Alrighty I've got the GT 610 installed and everything is running cool. Also no random shut offs! Thanks for all your help! :thumbsup: I appreciate your time.


(If the random shut offs start up again should I post a new topic or request this one be re-opened?)

When you say "everything is running cool", Do you mean that the temps are about normal?
Did you do a clean and reapply of TIM?
Did you install the latest drivers for the GT 610.

Yes everything runs with a low temperature, and I still don't have anything to break down the thermal paste so I didn't re-apply any. And yes my graphics card is all fine.

OK. thanks.
If it is running nice and cool, I would leave well alone.
When finances available and you're ready for a new PSU, we would be happy to give some recommendations.

Good luck.
