Question about System Power Supplies

1 Answer

VIDEO CARD I just bought a HP a6400t desktop pc from best buy. I'm unable to play current games, for example call of duty 4. I found out that I need to install a video card. I was looking at the Nvidia 8600 GT 1 GB. According to the specs I need a 350W power supply. This pc has a 250W power supply. I would like to upgrade the power supply, but before I purchase, I want to make sure it fits in the case. Are there standard sizes?

No, if you attempt that then your computer with either not work because of video card errors, or it will boot up and run for a couple hours and then the graphics card will most likely melt due to insufficient power to the fan. Your best bet is to return the video card and buy a video card that is compatible, or buy a new power supply with the connections that you require.

I HAVE A HP PAVILION SLIMLINE (S5310F) AND WANT TO PUT IN A VIDRO CARD, SO I NEED A LARGER POWER SUPPLY. HOW DOO I DO THAT?


Replacing the Power Supply DEPENDING on the power needed? you might have to settle for a slower, weaker performing video card. Make sure you check the video card power supply specs needed.
Chances are you will max WATT at about 300WATTs less then what you'd need to power a gaming video card. OR you could do as I'd do.
Remove everything and place it all in a standard tower case - install a 650WATT power supply in to the new mid/full size case and BAM solution found.. Have fun and a great day to ya.
