    how do u check how much power supply the graphic card will suck up ?

  11. mordotss says:

    @minhmeo1209 me for example, my compupter power supply only has 300W supply. i bought a ati radeon HD 2600 pro which needed at least 300W. after a couple of months of using this card i began to get countless blue screens of death and such. but as i removed it, my problems went away.

  12. davidkerr7 says:

    i have a question
    my power supply is 550 watts and i wanted to add a new graphics card that as a minimum of 500 watts (+12 at 36? amps) can i use it ?

    i have a i570-5378pbk and someone told me i couldnt run a ati radeon hd 4350 is this true

  14. zhiheng2005 says:

    @minhmeo1209 IT SEES UR MOTHERBOARD BRAND, YOURS SHOULD BE HAVING a 4 PIN CPU Connector, 24 Pin Motherboard (All in standard, cuz most psus have those pins.)

  15. minhmeo1209 says:

    Are there anyway to know how much pin cpu plug my computer has? Because i bought it in 2007 but im not sure if it’s manufactured in 2006 or later. Thanks in advance

  16. zhiheng2005 says:

    @minhmeo1209 Nope, u may nid to change ur motherboard if ur comp is as old as 2006 comp (4 pin CPU plug) the recently MB has 8 pin instead of the old 4 pin

  17. minhmeo1209 says:

    dude. mmm….if i have to change, u mean i gotta change my whole computer or only sth else?
    Thx in advance

  18. zhiheng2005 says:

    @minhmeo1209 Then change to a higher one, if not either ur PSU blows up (It really blows if too long). or u cant boot ur computer

  19. minhmeo1209 says:

    what will happen if the graphic card suck up a lot of power supply ???

  20. essentialeugene says:

    Someone7089 you can have two video cards in your PC however you have to update your power supply because video cards take a lot of power these days.

  21. Venddenta says:

    Yeah if they are both nVidia or ATI , but they will only run at the speed of the slower card , but for ati / nVidia i dont think you can

  22. njwfunmaster says:
