Hi karban0
It means your power unit could deliver max 400W in extreme conditions but only for a very short while ( one or two seconds or even less ) .
So , you could encounter great difficulties to get your pc running smoothly under heavy conditions , especially if you are a fervent game fan .
It would be wise to replace your power unit by one of a larger wattage . This is very easy and relatively cheep operation .

It means your power supply generally produce 305w power but if the load increases then it will produce 400w power. But since the minimum requirement of your card is 500 watt then you'll need a power supply produce 400w power at any given time. If you use two graphics card using crossfire technology then you'll need increase your power supply according to the requirement.

    You can steel run it but you'll not get the best performance and there always a risk of get the power supply unit burnt.

I would upgrade. Even if it did peak at 400w, your graphics card alone would take all of it. PSU's are pretty cheap now-adays.

    You need to use a 500W True Power power supply that will supply enough power to the motherboard, Processor an Video card but it is better to provide the make and model of the PSU that you are using so that we can check the power and wont waste money on buying new PSU

  • Kristijan Mar 13, 2011

    i was looking inside and i cant find anything..no model no nothing..i found only one think on PSU but there is nothing about it on internet

  • Rofel Lantican
    Rofel Lantican Mar 13, 2011

    If there's no Make and Model indicated on the PSU we can say that you are using a Generic Type of PSU better to Upgrade with a Branded or True Rate PSU. Generic 500w PSU usually generate 250-300W unlike true power 500W it Generates 500W true power.

    If you want to calculate the power usage of the whole sytem you can use the PSU calculator.

The PCIE slot on your mainboard is v1.0; this should work fine with a PCIE v2.0 card (which is backwards-compatible with v1.0), but not the v2.1 cards. Make sure you also check for power requirements of any potential card. If your PC has a stock PSU, it's quite likely that a PSU upgrade will also be needed.

Make sure you set the primary graphics in the bios to pic-e and you will likely have to upgrade your power supply as this card requires at least a 400 watt you pc came with a 285 watt not near enough power for this video card and could be your problem

Good news, you can upgrade the graphics card with almost any current PCIe (PCI Express) video card. Once you install a new graphics card in your system, the ATI Radeon x200 will be disabled automatically, as per the manual.

The one caveat is that the board is not PCIe 2.0 compliant, so any video card that requires PCIe 2.0 compliance will not work. This is not an issue as almost all modern graphics cards work on PCIe 1.0. However, make sure to check the requirements o fthe card before you buy it.

As for the most suitable graphics card for you, its hard to say without knowing what tasks you wish to use this computer for and what is your budget. If you are only using it for office tasks, then the onboard graphics processor is more than enough for your use.

I should mention, that the motherboard processor support constrains you to the P4 series of CPUs. This is fine for moderate tasks, but if your gola is to play a game like Crysis, then even the most powerful, multiGPU graphics card will only make the game playable. You will probably never be able to max out your frames per second.

That said, the board supports up to a 3.4ghz CPU, which is fast enough to play almost every modern game if you upgrade to a powerful graphics card.

If you wish to do 3D graphics design, I would not recomend upgrading the video card for this purpose. Video rendering and processing stil does rely on the CPU. However, if you look into nvidia's CUDA framekwork, it is possible to offload rendering to the GPU. This is probably not worth the effort unless you are relaly short on cash.

Bottom line is, yes you can upgrade no problem. As for the best video card, I do need to know he reason you wish to upgrade the video card.

Can i put a 9800 gtx+ on a dg31pr motherboard?


OK, Here you are . Your present card ,8500GTdraws approximately 40 watts. Your proposed card draws approximately 150 watts according to a review I just read on it.  A 400 watt is not very much and if you get close to maxing out you run the risk of a low voltage problem which could and will burn out compoinents.  I would not do it.    Also , if you upgrade power supply, know that the wattage given is usually peak , not operating wattage which can be as much as 10 or more percent less. Go for at least 600.
