Hello there, I am purchasing an xps 420 in the next week and the graphics card thats going to be arriving with it is not the best so i need a decent card, Also not to sure what power supply will be arriving with it, So any suggestions for this system:
Intel Q6600 Quad Core (2.4ghz, 8mb cache, 1066mhz FSB)
4096MB 800Mhz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (4x1024)
24" Dell S2409W 24 Inch Full HD Flat Panel Monitor
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer PCI Soundcard
Creative Labs Inspire T10 Speakers
6xBlu-Ray ROM Drive & 48xCDRW/DVD ROM
640GB Serial ATA non Raid (7200rpm)
Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium SP1
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Alienware Area 51 ALX
Well, After looking at a couple of sites people seem to be mentioning a 512mb radeon hd 4870, Not this one specifically, Will one of these be suitable for the system i am getting?
Anything thats close to this would be ideal.
How about these davet, Will these be suitable?
XPS 420 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit - Q6700 - 8 GB 800 MHZ Mushkin RAM - 2 500 GB Samsung - 425 Watt PSU
Nvidia 8800gt - 24" Gateway LCD
Yes if you go with the GTX or GTX2 9800 series or GTX 260 you will proably need to upgrade your powersupply to the 425W if you stay with the 9800GT or GTX the 375w supply will be fine.
Yes you could just order a 425W supply from Dell if you want to run these higher end cards.
