Default Re: I want to build around 2gb vram.. and need some help

You can adjust your RAM timings.

Those heatspreaders are often impossible to get off, so if you want better ones, too bad.

OP: I would not recommend that gigabyte board. Get the ASUS one I posted.

You need 650 watts minimum according to AMD. My 600W gamexstream was overdrawn by this video card with a 95 watt cpu, so with a 125w, its not even close to enough.

Get a 700w GameXstream. Thats what I have and its good.

Refurb here-> http://www.svc.com/ocz700gxssli-b.html
New-> http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...odlist=froogle

If you want to get the refurb, its up to you. If its DOA, you will have a bit of a delay on your system, and there is a small chance it could fry your mobo, potentially more. OCZ seems to have OK refurbished PSU's though.
