NVidia GeForce 9300 265MB with a 250 watt PSU

Can anyone tell me anything about this video card... the link at NVidia is DEAD! I don't know if it's a GeForce 9300GE or a GeFarce 9300 Crapmaster 2000

Also... Can a Video card that's worth a damn work off of a 250 watt PSU?

If I had known this PC only had a 250 watt PSU and the video card was so ambiguous... I would have continued to keep power shopping.

I have a ATI HD2400 in my old single CPU eMachines and it needs 400 watts!

I ordered a 64 bit Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.6 GHz, 4G RAM 800MHz

What is Giga Ethernet? as opposed to regular Ethernet? Do I have it?

Thank you for being here! TC in Tampa!

    I have the same issue in that I bought an HP 'multi-media' system with the same video-card. To be honest its completely useless when it comes to high-end graphics games and it seems way out of place when it comes to the other hard-ware on the CPU which performs superbly.



    I have a 300w PSU, so I'm wondering what my upgrade options are?

GeForce 9300GE is the video card
GeForce 9300 is the motherboard

Also 250 Watt would not be sufficient for most new video cards. Most need a 450+ for requirements.

Giga Ethernet is short for Gigabyte Ethernet which allows for more speed if you have a higher speed internet service

    No problem. The problem with upgrading store bought computers is that they only supply each part sufficient enough to run the rest, hence the low powered PSU instead of a more reliable one. Glad I could help.

Does This Graphics Card Work With My Dell Inspiron 530s Even Though My Power Supply Is Only 250 Watts? Will my computer work with this card even though the PSU is only 250 watts?...


I think you're asking for trouble. The specs at the link you gave recommend at least a 300-watt supply. By the time you figure in the normal load of everything else in the system, there probably won't be enough power from the 250-watt supply to let the card work reliably, and may affect overall system operation. One of the problems with small form-factor computers is that they often use a proprietary power supply to fit the case, and you can't replace it with anything larger. This limits expansion capability. I'd suggest saving your money.

I have Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT graphics card ...I recently bought my system...4 GB corsair ram....1 TB hard disk...400 W Cooler master PSU...Classic intel H55 motherboard...Still when play Gta or NFS hot...


How can I state this politely?

The Nvidia GeForce 9500GT is a definite step up from using Integrated Graphics.
No debate needed there.

But it only has 32 Stream Processors.

Think of Stream Processors as a 'Graphics Information Highway'.
They are essentially the lanes of the highway.
The more lanes you have, the more graphics information can be transferred from the graphics card to the Processor, and vice-versa.

Having 32 Stream Processors is like having a 'Bottleneck' in the road.
Equate that to a roadblock put up for road construction, where 8 lanes are dwindled down to 1 lane.
Traffic slows down.

This is seen when using intense games. Frame rates drop down, the game freezes, and graphics are poor unless on low settings. (Or not at all)

Here, take a look at Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce 9500GT graphics card.
Read the Specifications at the bottom, watch the video.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4111742&CatId=3669

However!
A decent graphics card shouldn't 'Break the Bank'.

You don't need a $500 graphics card to slam those games.
You might want to look into an Nvidia GeForce GT 240 graphics card.

96 Stream Processors.
512MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory. (That's DDR5)
550MHz Core Clock
1340MegaHertz Shader Clock
3588MHz Memory Clock

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5516908&CatId=3669


Better than that?
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 Superclocked.
1024MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory.
192 Stream Processors.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6655890&CatId=3669

For the above two graphics cards you need a decent power supply.
IF, the power supply you have DOES produce an honest maximum wattage of 400 Watts,
AND has at least 30 Amps on the 12 volt power rail. (Or 12 volt power rails), you're okay.

I would recommend an OCZ StealthXStream 2 / 600 Watt power supply though, when you can afford it.
It can produce over 700 watts if kept at a temperature of 48.4 degrees Celsius.
(119.12 degrees Fahrenheit )
Has FOUR 12 volt power rails that can supply up to 18 Amps EACH.
(Total of 72 Amps)

Has all the power cables you'll need, plus ones for the above graphics cards.
(Can handle them with NO sweat)

I have dell gx 260 with 2.4 ghz nd 1gb ddr ram with nvidia geforce fx 5200 can u name any graphics card which will be gud enough than geforce 5200...nd agp plz..


You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:


1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4914257&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology



3) Best: HIS HD4670

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6076197&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

Sounds like you are overtaking the power supply with the upgraded video card. 250 Watt is pretty much an entry level PWS, with most systems and upgraded Video I suggest a 400 watt PWS or higher

HP Pavilion 250 watt PSU that includes a Nvidia GeForce 9300


The maximum output of a PSU simply means it is able to supply a certain amount of power. It can also deliver anything under the wattage. Where you fry things is where the connectors are wrong. HP, COmpaq, Dell, IBM have all, at times, used nonstandard connectors in their PCs. If you take something with a standard connector, and use it in a machine where that connector needs to nonstandard, you can fry stuff.

Upgrading power supply


The next time you get a PSU. Tell them what you have. Apparently you got one that is not compatible with your compaq.The power (500 wattage) will work with your MB.
Get an OEM PSU from Compaq(HP).
