Hello!

 

Currently i am looking for a new GPU to replace my Current GTX 660 (believe it to be an OEM Version, 3GB Gddr5)

 

Found myself a Asus  GeForce GTX 750 TI PhysX Cuda 2GB card, for a reasonal price. I would like to know wether or not this card fits into my computer

 

I am not certain but my brother says that the computer has a PSU of 500W (It is his old computer so i trust him on this.)

 

Motherboard: http://puu.sh/kez0S/952c0e9cae.png

 

The card says something about an Extra requirement of a 6pin PCI-Express Connector (I don't know what this means.

 

Here's the Grahpic card, Tho i am getting a Different model I shall link aswell!

 

http://www.geforce.c.../specifications(Original)

 

https://www.komplett...2gb-physx-cuda#P.S Site is in SWEDISH.

(The model i'm getting)

 To see the specifications of this card on the swedish site, Press the button saying Tekniska Specifikationer (Written i capital letters)

TheZorcs,

 

Few different models of GTX GeForce 750Ti. Important you do know the PSU specs before upgrading a Graphics Card, most of the different models i see of this particular 750TI require 300W minimum PSU.

6 Pin connector they refer to is a PCI-E card power connector consisting of 6 pins as you have to make sure you have an extra one on this PSU and PCI-E 16x on board needs to be free for this card.

 

Need to show us the specific card you are thinking of purchasing. Some specs change with each model i have seen giving you better performance. First check PSU better if can supply a model number from it for us to look more into it's specs.Also help to know make and model of PC. Is this it ? https://www.asus.com...Desktops/M51AC/

If so it comes with 3 different PSU's see specs https://www.asus.com...specifications/

is there a reason your down grading from the gtx660 to the gtx750i ?

 

the 750i has lower power requirements than your 660 so should work just fine in your pc, and  "The card says something about an Extra requirement of a 6pin PCI-Express Connector (I don't know what this means." means it uses the same power lead your current 660 should be connected with.

looks like this :- http://www.allpinout...CIe)_6pin_power

It could be the computer i'm using. The one i have is 2 years old though. might be longer.

"is there a reason your down grading from the gtx660 to the gtx750i ?" It is the TI Version of the 750 not 750I (eye) it is the (Tee Eye) version.

 

You may have misread. The "Asus GTX 750 TI" is a whole generation above the "Asus GTX 660"

I looked at the computer you linked and it looked like the one i have.

 

So i'm starting to think it is the same. only that it is modifiable.

All desktop can be upgraded with hardware, as long rest meets requirements of specific hardware. Said it had a 300W PSU in ASUS model i linked. So if you can be more specific and give model number of your for sure it is this one. By chance if can open case and get make and model number of PSU. If 300w always never go to exact with reuiements of hard ware is, in your case a graphics card, so always want to go above that 300W. Because of other hardware in PC if anything was added to the PC. You have a PCI-E x16 slot available other thing you need is a 6 pin PCI conector to the PSU. Does show some come with 350W or 500W PSU in model of ASUS i linked, what we need to know first.

Okay. I shall look into that

 

Edit: after looking into my computer, I inspected the PSU, and it said Continuous MAX power = 500W (I guess this is how much it is.)

Then i look at the graphic card where the cords were connected..

I saw one cord with 3 yellow cables, and 3 black ones, and then i saw one cord with 6 yellow cables, and 3 black ones.

 

Don't really know if this is what i was looking for. hope it was.

 

 

as i am not very experienced with hardware! :D

Yellow and how many is mattering to +12v single rail PSU or more, one goes for the motherboard,CPU, others can be for Video card, hard to know for sure without seeing and knowing make and model of PSU, does seem to be 500w PSU.

 

Any chance of looking for model number and make marked anywhere on the PSU ? List it here for me to look up.

 

Is there a free 6 pin connector marked PCI and whatever card is in there now does it have a lead going to the PSU already and possibly the 6 pin you need. Most likely has the PCI 6 PIN connectors, but we want to make sure everything is correct before a purchase of new card.

The power supply i have is called:

 

Asus Delta dps-500ab-6 a

 

Also took a picture of my graphic card by the connecting cables.

 

Here's the picture. If you would be so kind to explain what the difference between these two are ^^ i'm curious.

TheZorcs,

 

From doing research on this PSU not a quality PSU. PSU are important to system would never want to  overload more to it then it can handle. Better quality PSU has better components inside.

Good idea here are connections and specs and also in this picture. http://specsen.com/p...s-500ab-a-500w/

 

You basically have enough wattage for that particular card, but amperage is what concerns me on this PSU and it's quality. GTX 750ti basically need 20amps on +12v rail. I know you may not understand this part, but it is important.

Specs link says 18amps and picture i found shows 20amps.

 

So i would really first need you to pick out exact model of this card you would purchase and then i can look again, as told before some specs change with this card. As some model are different specs.

From your picture it shows (2) 6 pin connectors so you are fine there for GTX 750Ti from what it needs on PSU.Just Google GTX GeForce 750Ti see number of diffrent versions, makes and models with slightly different specs there is also a SC Super clocked version, one with 2 fans instead os one fan.

Thanks for the info. The card i'm wanting to get specifically: https://www.komplett...2gb-physx-cuda#

 

The site is in swedish, but you should still have the name for the card.I don't know of any sites that are written in english should you need to read about it. Unless you simply need the name of the card.

 

good to know that the pin connectors match. And for the 18/20 amps stuff. yes i have no clue what it means.

 

Also, What should the consequense be should the psu has 18 amps and whatnot, and the gpu requires 20,

 

Assuming that's what you said. (Unless i misunderstood)  Would stuff break? would it not work?
