Power supply/Graphics card question
Hey, so i recently decided it was time to upgrade my graphics card and throw some more ram into my computer,problem is im not really looking to spend over 250 for the whole setup, was trying to get 4gb of ram and a decent graphics card. I found a card that im considering buying ( Radeon HD 3870 512MB) but when i looked into the system requirements it's calling for a 450 Watt or greater power supply ): i only have a 250 watt psu atm.
So with the 250 watt power supply would it be completely out of the question to run the card through it anyway ? if that's not a possibility does anyone have any recommendations for a good setup for FX card or card/supply?? was trying to spend about 50 on the ram and 200 on the card/psu (if i need the psu)
The main use of the comp is gaming, and im looking to be able to play new games on high settings my current setup can hang with most stuff but just wont cut it when you go to crank the settings up . Anyway any help would be appreciated thanks!
