Hi everyone ! i decided to buy this version of the inspiron 530 ;
ComponentsPROCESSOR Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E8200 (6MB L2 Cache,2.66GHz,1333FSB)
Ok, so the price for all of this is;868.00 CAD taxes included.
now, as you noticed it, i picked the motherboard-embeded bad graphic card , because i want to add a radeon HD3850 in the case as soon as i recieve my tower and monitor (for 138 CAD taxes included) .
My question is ;
i ve read that DELL use a 300watts PSU in its C2D based computers, and a 375 watts in its computer with quad core.
Considering i didnt pick a HD2600xt as the default graphic card, will they still use a 300watts one, or are they going to put a 250 or even less power supply in it, which would prevent me from adding a HD3850 in the pci express slot? Or are they going to put a 300watts in it, which would be allright ?
thanks in advance for your answers.
thanks again shesagordie, id like to know what you think of this thread i replied to which deals with the addition of a HD3850 in a inspiron 530 case with a 300watts psu .
is the default 300 watts psu too weak to handle a HD3850? does it have a power cable, wether its sata or molex or would i need an adapter?
ok, decided to do the folowing;
plug it into this;
and plug both into a remaining sata conector from the psu.
Then i would plug the whole thing into a bulk HD3850 .
hope it will work; im going to try it.
