The best could be the most expensive one that will fit. 400 watts is plenty for all.

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.

This system uses a custom size psu - you cannot replace it. But you can buy a simple case and move everything in it - the present case would not support the heating coming from the new video card anyway.

You should not have a problem doing that. Your motherboard has a PCI Express X16 slot available. If you have problems when running intensive gaming then you may need to upgrade your PSU to a higher watttage. The 9800 GT is very power hungry. One problem you may have is that if your computer is a HP Slimline there might not be enough room inside the case for that card and you might need a low profile graphics card.

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

Recommended psu wattage inreplacement to 300watts psu for asusp4p800s-x


the needed wattage is directly linked to the componets you want to use other then the mobo itself. the main power surges are the CPU (takes 40 to 110 Watts) a graphics card (from 5 to over 150 Watts) the Drives (about 25-30 Watts eachs), the RAM and all the other addons and gadgets you build into your PC. Just add the different Wattages together and give it quiet some headroom. I usually drive this kinds of mobos with 400-550 Watts PSU to be on the save side, if i use a more or less "standard" graphics card, and even more with high sophistcated cards or lots of drives or such.

if you "see" low power (Volts) it might also be a problem with a partwise defective PSU.

HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .


Thanks
