OK heres my current PC specs... Im wanting to upgrade my Video card cause im a big FPS gamer, but im not sure what card to get cause of my power supply... Right now i have a KFA2 8500GT 512mb DDR2 video card and its pretty crappy, i can only play games at 1024x768 on medium graphics...
-Elitegroup A770M-A mother board
-AMD 4000+ duel core 64bit @ 2.8ghz
-4gigs DDR2 PC6400
-40gig hard drive (old one crashed i know its small)
-8500GT 512mb ddr2 video card
-5 fans for cooling, light up with blue l.e.d.s but the l.e.d.s are powered -when the fans moves so doesnt use more power..
-Running windows XP 64bit
Heres my power supply and a bar
450watts total power
+3.3V/26A +5V/35A +12V/15A -12V/.8A -5V/.5A +5VSB/2A
I was looking at getting a 8800GTS, 9800GT Ecopower saver, 9600GT... I found a 8800GTS on craigslist for 100bux so i want to get this card....The thing is i dont understand the whole volts to amps.. The card says 12vots at 26 amps...but i dont understand the volts and amp bar to know if my power supply can run this... I also dont have any 6pin power connectors anywhere in my computer, just an extra regular power that plugs into a cd/dvd drive or hard drive.....Ive seen adapters but dont know where to get one if i need to get one.....or what cards need a 6pin connector... Any help will be greatly appriciated.
