Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

I am running a HD 4600 series;I love it in that I can send video via the HDMI/.DVI port to my 46" SONY

I DOUBT the 4800 would NOT run; I might try and ask the AMD guys/tech support

I believe it is the same architecture; of course I am NOT running a stock P/S; mine is a 750 or 800W aftermarket; I am NOT familiar how power hungry these HD series cards are; that would be *my* concern considering the PCIe card slots are standard

Re: XPS 435 Owner's Thread

Hi,

Sorry for being too lazy to browse this whole thread but:

I was hoping someone could help me with a Velociraptor question.  I purchased this XPS 435MT four years ago & it has been an excellent computer, very little to complain about.  Recently I have begun to think perhaps a little more speed would be nice but shy away from SSD do to concerns with TRIM, IDE vs AHCI, the affect to the Optical Drives if AHCI.

So what about a Velociraptor or is all of this a waste of time on a SATA 2 machine?.  Has anyone here installed one & what kind of performance running SATA IDE.

Currently my system has a Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM,  ST31000528AS.

Thank you

Yes,Yes and Yes, all pci-e x16 cards 2.0 (and 3.0) will work, this is a card I ran for a while, good card doesnt require more power:XFX FX-775A-ZNP4 Radeon HD 7750 Core Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card ($89.00 after rebate newegg) plays call of duty,crysis 3, etc on high/ultra settings-you can run  bigger /better cards but may need PSU upgrade.

RE: XPS 435 Owners Thread

these cards run off the 75 watts supplied thru the pci-e x16 slot - no additional power cable needed-the dell 435t/9000 475 watt power supply  will run them.

RE: XPS 435 Owners Thread

I have the same high pitch noise as well.....

 

ANYWAY.. this is my spec... i7-920 1.66ghz
12GB ddr3
GTS 240

Shouldnt this beat my previous q9300, 4gb a little more than i expected?

the i7 920 should be running @ 2.66 ghz (2.93 ghz turbo)
