Talking Got a new Jaton Geforce4 Ti4600

okay.
this thing is freaking huge.

first off.
i didn't install it yet because i wanted to know some things about it before i did anything.

ok.

i have a measly 250 watt power supply.
(i'm planning on upgrading one by one.)

i want to know if that my weak power supply will cause a bad affect with my video card?

jus wanted to know.
kind of a newbie.
thank u

I don't think it will cause a bad effect - if it doesn't give the Card enough it'll just stop. You will however have to upgrade to power the Ti4600.

go for has high as you can afford 350w plus.

it wont be wasted and it will mean you can upgrade whatever you want in future and not worry about it.

Yeah; 250W would not do it. Something over 350W would be advisable and 400W would do practically anything you would do in the future.

Yeah; sounds about right - not going to get that high is it!

You'd hope not at least.

depends how much you're willing to spend...
For a cheaper one that still should work, I'd say go with maybe an allied or another one about that much. If you're willing to spend it, you should probably go with something like enermax. They're expensive, but they're built to last a nice long time. It really depends on what you want to spend.
