The thing about PSUs and videos cards, which is really the only issue for the consumer market, is that the wattages are more like guide-lines than exact specks. I cannot really see any difference between the two. You're a star, thanks very much!

Join over 733,556 other people just like you! Thanks, Charlie PS. It's an excellent unit. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3061053/gt220-upgrade.html Should I delete the extras folder and start over?

I suspect I misstepped somewhere so I will describe what i have done so far. If the system won't boot with the card in place, the PSU is inadequate. Corsair, OCZ, Antec, Enermax are a few good brands. The cheap $20 and $30 are going to be worse then what you have.

You can also identify the actual manufacturer of the PSU by entering the UL number into the following:http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/XYV/...http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.ph...The UL number in the example I posted is E173738, the manufacturer is Delta.

If the power supply fails because it was overloaded it can potentially take out the motherboard and video card. check my blog Some of the higher end CoolerMasters are okay, but I'd go with the others as first choice.

Because I had such little difficulty before Im unsure of the steps to take next.

Chalima said: It worked. Look on the side of the Dell PSU, it should have the amps. ie: A $400 video card would be more reliable with a $80 550watt PSU over a $45 "700watt" unit. - So because of funny math, you have to go by AMPs

So refer to the brands that Triple6 recommended, but you may include: Thermaltake, FSP Group, Seasonic as well.

Depending on how your PC is configured, a GTX 660 may not get enough power from the 460 watt PSU in your PC. The better brands will have a 3~5year warranty. cheating their numbers. have a peek at these guys but not the 5970 or the GeForce 480 or 470.

Still no luck. If the system boots but you run into problems such as locking up or random reboots, especially when gaming, the PSU is inadequate. I would like to be able to play at higher graphics setting, with a steady fps.I have a Dell Inspiron 545 I can order a graphics card online, and any links I appreciate anyone who took the time to read this and would be grateful of any pointers and advice..

If your card is supported, it should boot with no trouble.

I've heard that you must remove all static from your body or else you can fry your motherboard, is this true and how can I prevent that from happening?

I have tried specifying some things before I boot, eg graphicsenabler=yes and ATIconfig=Duckweed but they dont seem to have helped. With a quality 550w PSU, you can power pretty much anything that'll fit your case.
