Well i opened my PC n there was this Kinda Big box on the top(Which I assume wud be the PSU)
So on the top left it was written: Mercury(Which i guess was the Brand)
On the top right it was written: 400W
Beneath 400W it was written model: KOB AP4400XA
And beneath the model was writen this: ATX Switchin with Power Supply
And den was a table describing Input, output etc.
That's the one. If you're ever unsure about what something is, type it into google to get a description or see a picture of it.
The Mercury 400W is a very low quality PSU. If you look at the input/output table on the label, it says 17A under +12V. This means it's not good enough for the kind of graphics card you want, so you'll have to replace it with a good quality 550-650W PSU before installing a new card.
What's your total budget for a new PSU and graphics card? Do you have any links for online shops in your country (India?) so we can offer some suggestions?
Rs.4500 is not enough for a good graphics card and PSU that are going to be suitable for playing new games like MW2 at decent settings and framerates. You need to increase your budget, shop around for some cheaper deals, or wait until you've saved some more money.
Don't be tempted to buy a graphics card without a good quality PSU. This would be a waste of money and could cause permanent damage to the new card when it overheats.
THanks for telling me and helping me so much...
U kno i want to play modern warfare too bad wid my frenz as fast as possible!..
So i found out this Graphic card online wen I searched
Its Geforce 210
My current PSU Supports it..
The GeForce 210 is a very low quality card, not suitable for games like MW2 at all.
For example, if a card like the HD5770 can run games at 40 frames per second at medium settings, then the GeForce 210 would play the same games at around 10 frames per second, making the game jerky and unplayable.
You're going to need a new PSU before you upgrade the graphics card. 550W minimum with 40A on the +12V line and an 80% efficiency rating.
Your 400W PSU only has 17A on the +12V line. This is way too low for any PCIE graphics card, and could lead to permanent damage if you try using it with a new card.
Koala!....I think i'm gonna make a new system...I think instead of buying a graphic card and a PSU i'll assemble a new pc....I want a pc to be good in multimedia...u can take my Budget as 25000...Can U temme all the models of motherboard, ram, Graphic card etc. so that i can buy them as soon as possible!?
