    I'm thinking about upgrading my graphic card, but I'm not sure if my current specs support it. Here's my specs:

    Case: Antec 182p
    Motherboard: ASUS P5K SE
    Powersupply: Enhance 460W
    Processor: Intel E4500 2.2GHz

    Thanks for the help

    EDIT: Changed 260W to 460W

    No chance with that PSU its far too low to support it.
    Your motherboard probably will, not sure about the size of card in relation to that case though it should be okay.

    EDIT: The official nvidia website says a minimum of a 500W PSU and the card is 10.5" long if you wanted to measure that.

    the gtx260 is power hungry and a 260w psu isn't going to cut it that graphics card needs at least minimum 525w i'd say get at least 650w though.

    Woops I mean 420W... Sorry I'll fix the typo.

    Oh well I guess that means my PSU still ain't good enough... Thanks for the help guys

    Also check out the power supplied over the 12V line, that has to be suffient as well.

    Btw, why not push that e4500 a little [​IMG]?
