you need to check the label on the PSU.

Power consumpion !

as long as you have more than 280watts or 24amps on the v12 supply to the graphics card, you should be ok.

its one of them, if we were to say yeah go buy it, it would suck if it didnt work or you didnt get the effect that you want, so in one term, we dont wanna be held accountable for anything going wrong, so you'll always get a maybe or try,


if your not in a major rush for a new gpx start building a new pc bit by bit, if you mobo isnt gunna run the 8800gt then get a new mobo first mine cost me 60 quid ex vat

next a cpu mine is the intel 2 duocore 2 e6600

then gpx
mine the Gigabyte 8800gt cost including early delivery 140 quid although they can be picked up cheaper

check this link, it shows everything in my pc so hae a gander and decide how you want to go

not to open a new thread

writing from work, brought my comp in and hope i'll have the time to take it to the shop so they can see what's wrong, cause i don't know

took it to the shop
where the guy was able to turn it on a couple of times without a problem
and he's looking at me, i'm shrugging, and already picturing how the comp will definitely not work once i bring it back home
but (un)fortunately he tried once more and couldn't get it to boot

it's apparently the mobo, which is still under warranty but it takes 3 working days cause they're sending it to their supplier Sad

so optimistically i'll be operational middle of next week
i did indulge and buy a nice 8800GT on the side Wink

ok guys, i need some help again :shy

as they didn't have the gfx card that i wanted back then, i'm upgrading now
the system specs are in the 1st post on the 1st page

and in that system i'm trying to install the 8800GT 1gb
this is it :
www.microdirect.co.uk/...I-x-2.aspx

prob is, when i put it in and tried to start the comp it starts beeping like it's going to explode any second untill i turn it off

any ideas?
