Hi, I just recently bought a 6600gt AGP at a cheap price and I really enjoy it. However, I am able to get my hands on a x850pro agp which is a lot faster. The only problem is that I don't know if I need to upgrade my computer to handle that card.

Here are my specs:

Asus motherboard P4P800 DDR400Mhz 800Mhz FSB
Intel Pentium 4 processor 3ghz (oc @ 3.15)
BFG AGP Geforce 6600gt 128mb
P/S Enermax 350watts (+12V @ 26A)

I don't know if my system could handle that video card and if my power supply is strong enough. Also, will I need to add a cooler for that video card?

Thanks for the help and please tell me if anything needs to be added :tazz:

Hi,

You should not have to upgrade anything, normally a 350w psu is a concern but Enermax and forton have very high amps on all the rails.

I also know of no reason to use a aftermarket cooler on the card
