Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Tom,

 

The NVIDIA 430 might work with your current power supply.  This card draws power from the PCI-E slot.

 

Another card to consider if you don't need DirectX 11 support is the NVIDIA GT 240 1GB DDR5.  This card will work with most 300 watt power supplies.  It's an excellent card.  I am using the EVGA GT 240 1GB DDR5 in one of my PCs.  This card also draws power from the PCI-E x16 slot.

 

Review the NVIDIA performance specifications. Look at the memory bandwidth specifications and the DirectX level support.

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Hi,

 

I'm trying to find a replacement Power Supply for my HP 8100 Elite Minitower (PSU Part No 508154-001).

I read in this threat that there seems to be no HP or third party replacement possibility because of its proprietary connectors.

 

I need a PSU with a PCI E Powerconnector for a new NVidia or ATI GPU.

Has somebody found a solution in the meantime?

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

I own a HP Pavilion p6649c desktop computer. I'm thinking about installing a new video card (new card requires 500+ Watts), but I'm unsure of which power supply I need to get since I heard that HP motherboards might not accept regular power connectors. Do I have to buy a power supply through HP or can I purchase one from a third-party company?

 

If I can buy from another company, would this be able to fit inside my tower?

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

OK. I'm clearly not in the same league as the other posters on here but here goes. I have a Pavilion p6110y desktop that I'm adding a graphics card to. I'll need to upgrade my power supply from 250w to 300w to do so. Can someone suggest a compatible power supply? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Captwham,

 

What video card are you looking to use?  Can you tell us the main intended purpose is for adding a video card?

 

You might want to consider a bigger PSU so that you have a bigger selection of video cards to chose from.

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Just bought a Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 card. Specs says it needs at least a 300w power supply. My needs are modest so this card seemed to fit the bill pretty well.

Hi,

 

Try this Corsair.  It's $20 after the rebate.

 

Inventory your internal power supply connectors and verify that the Corsair has the connectors that you need.
