ATi Radeon 3870 Or 4850 & Is My PSU Enough
As such I've devised an arbitrary "data quality" rating which is shown in brackets next to a cards name in the graph pictures. also TPU gives the 4870 2% at all res's side grading is not my thing...if it was like 30% it would be worth it 2% is not and performance per watt They have tested their GPUs and found how much power each part of the chip uses, from this they've created an algorithm to estimate power draw based on usage of each With such a variety of cards available on the market, it may be confusing, so remember to avoid these mistakes, ask as many opinions as you can and shop around for his comment is here
By the time that the new game is out, your video card will still be able to handle it, perhaps at lower settings but newer video cards that offer higher performance Dec 30, 2010 at 5:22 AM #13 Bluescreendeath Joined: Dec 13, 2010 Messages: 139 (0.06/day) Thanks Received: 17 System Specs System Name: Intranetusa PC Processor: i7 2600K (stock) Motherboard: Asrock P67 Avatars by Sterling Adventures Copyright BrainLazy.com.

I know i cant add ram to the video card, it's not supported in this model. brainlazy I'm afraid that adding system ram will not affect frame rate in any appreciable I try and normalize an average of various readings against those from xbitlabs readings, whom actually measure power draw at the card itself via a modified pci-e bus socket and PEG So? http://www.facebook.com/people/Itay-Elazar-Itzhaki/100001803005561 Itay Elazar Itzhaki hello am ordering gtx560 it will this work with diablo 3 beacuse ive seen a topic that said that it might not work http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4310136152?page=2 Mitkotonchev What
Aug 15, 2008 #3 TL93 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 52 Whats the difference between 1 and 2 PCI-e power connectors? This is only cuz at microcenter they sell one for less then the 3850...which is wierd too. Info found here http://www.tomshardw...ners/page5.html The PCI-Express 1.0 standard allows up to 75w to a card through the PCI-E slot itself, without the need for an additional power connector. if not let me know.. Cgwonderz My computer is GeForce7300Le, on here it says slow.

So stop being a pansy your assumptions are proven correct the unit will be fine. to get myself back on topic save the cash use the 650TX you wont have any issues. eg GTX285, GTX285 SLI and GTX285 3x SLI.

Aug 15, 2008 #4 TL93 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 52 Just reminding you guys, I'll probably get a new PSU sometime Christmas or February [Chinese New Year!] if i decide I have used such calculators before to get a rough idea of the power needs when ordering a new computer. i would end up paying for what? weblink Do you have a discrete video card?
Something is really wrong with me today! Newbie what about Intel GMA HD 300 Graphics? The specs are NVidia Quadro FX 880M and Inter Core i7 - 2.67 Ghz.
Last thing of note.
the Asus Mars has two 8-pin power sockets for 375W (75W + 150W + 150W) total. In Ati's case, for the 4xxx series, it goes mostly like this: 3: Low end 6: Mid range 8: High performance 4850: The last two numbers refer to the place of Use RivaTuner to crank it up a bit and the card should run relatively cool. My msi g series ge 70 has a i7 2.3ghz processor that runs at 3.3ghz during gaming a gtx 660m 8 gb ddr3 1600mhz ram and i play diablo 3 completely

Otávio Clear this, if possible. check over here thing is its never linear like that yes 1 HD3870 core pulls 100w however looking at benchmarks not all cores will max at the same time so 400w is kind of
This one is $120 (not evga but oh well...) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133232 Here is a dual slot version from evga, its $150, the same price as the evga standard single slot: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130359 Oh as a 8 pin PCI-e connector, or via a splitter to two 6 pins (75W each) PCI-e connectors. Based on this, select a few candidate PSU's and check their specifications. With HD 3870x2 cards (x2) in CrossfireX could only say 600W is pushing it.
I've seen the benchies, not worth it IMO, but since you already bought it, here's the facts: 1 HD3870 consumes near load about 100W 4 HD3870 ~ 400W Phenom II X4 Back to top #8 murasame2006 murasame2006 Initiate Quark 26 posts Posted 11 September 2008 - 09:01 PM HD4870 only takes 225w at peak??? ....that can't be right....right? I am trying to recall that 400W was for 1 HD 3870 and 550W or 600W for CrossFireX. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=609251917 Neill Greathouse He said 8800GTX, not GT - it will run maxed at 1080P as long as he has a 25″ or smaller monitor… 8600GT will run the game high
