Xps gen 4 desktop power supply upgrade possibility

I just bought a Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB video card. It requires a 750W power supply with at least one 2x3 and one 2x4 PCIe power connectors. My current power supply is 460W and has one 2x3 PCIe power connector.
My power supply part number per dell rep is w7124.
The part numbers I saw online are: Manufacturer Part# : XH732
Dell Part# : XH732


Dell does not have any compatible upgrade for my system. I have called around, and due to the ackward placement and shape, finding an upgrade is virtually impossible it seems.

thank you for your help

Buy a generic case that will accept the power supply you need. Of course you will need to transfer everything from the old case to the new case.

My geforce 8200 can not play fifa 11


Your graphics card is below the game minimum requirements (see link below) I would guess that this was a Dell, HP or other, and yours is basically a stripped down card with missing features, less memory etc. (which is why FIFA doesn't work) Your game also requires shader model 3.0, which will be present in all retail video cards on the list below.

From my information source site:
" Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 7300,8100,8200,8300 and 9300, ATI Radeon HD3200, HD4350, and Intel / S3 integrated chipsets are below minimum system requirement ."
http://gamesystemrequirements.com/games.php?id=956

If this is a desktop system, you can upgrade your video card to one of the following chipsets (video card series)
"Recommended Chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce® 6xxx series (6800 or greater) NVIDIA GeForce® 7xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 8xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 9xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 2xx series ATI Radeon X1600 (X1600 or greater) ATI Radeon X1800 ATI Radeon X1900 ATI Radeon X1950 ATI Radeon HD 2xxx series ATI Radeon HD 3xxx series ATI Radeon HD 4xxx series.
If you need help choosing a new video card, please repost your question and include the make (Dell, HP, etc. or white box) and model #. If this is a DIY project then please include as much information as possible about the mainboard, what version of windows, power supply, etc..

Need a good video card upgrade for my HP a6658f... one that will fit in the space provided and not require too much power (300 watt power source). The original is starting to go, and I would like to...


Your system has, from factory a Benicia #IPIBL-LB motherboard and has a PCIe x16 slot. You could go with any card PCIe x16 that is within your power range. I personally like the Gigabyte, Asus, Radeon HD cards because you can get sound and audio out of the card, unlike the Nvidia cards. The card you would more than likely be looking for would be a midrange card going anywhere from 40.00 to 90.00. There are many to chosse from but, I would get one that is Windows 7 or at least Windows Vista ready. This AMD's site and this card would work for you. It requires
300w supply and would do a good job.

What is the best video card that is compatible with my Dell Inspiron 530s?


You can use any PCIe X16 card you want, the only restriction being the power supply. Most of the high end gaming cards require minimum 400w supply with 600w for crossfire. The 530 comes with a 300w supply so, if you were looking for a card with out upgrading power supply you would have to stay within the 300w supply. I personally like the ATI/AMD Radeon HD cards because you gain sound and video through card but thats just me. If you are a light to moderate gamer and want HD video for tv monitor, etc. a midrange card, probably in the price range of $80.00 would ne good for you and could be done without upgrading power supply.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

in this case it sounds like you will have to replace it, but why won't the GFX card you have cope? resolution or connectivity. The Radeon HD 2400 is quite a capable card.

I'm afraid your video card may be faulty.
I myself have an ATI and Corsair build. Installed without a hitch.
You'll need to replace the card. Good thing it is new.
If you haven't, buy some fans for your system as well and install them on your casing. That card runs hot. I have 5x120mm fans in my desktop and it keeps my system nice and cool when I run Crysis or Fallout 3.
But yeah, don't try and fiddle with that card anymore. Put it back in the box and replace it.

Please rate if this was helpful, or comment if you'd like further assistance. Have a good week!

Do you have the 6-pin PCI-E power connector attached to the new video card? If you do it's possible you power supply is insufficient and may need to be upgraded.
