So I picked up a 1 gb 4670 ATI, which was meant to replace my x1900xtx, but I'm not very impressed with it, so I think I'll take it back and try the 512 4850 instead.
One of the reasons I picked up the 4670 is because I don't want to change too many parts, just the card really, but my PS is kinda weak compared to todays standards.
Would my 500 WATT PS2 ATX 12V 2.0 which came with my NZXT case cut it with regards to the needs of the 4850? In the AMD site a 450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended, I have the 6-pin, but I'm pretty sure that I only have around 30 watts...
Here's the rest of my rig:
AMD 4400+ Dual Core/ ASUS AN8 SLI mobo/ 4 gb of pc3200 @ 400Mhz/ XP Pro/
I'm not partial to ATI or anything, but it seems that most of the Nvidia cards require 2 6-pins, which I don't have.
I just want my system to last for another 12 months or so, at which point I'll dump the whole thing for something new. I primarly just play WoW on it right now, but since 3.1 and the new shaders, my poor x1900 couldn't cut the mustard. The 4670 was better but not by much and my fps was still turd slow...
So any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.
