    Power Supply Blues


    A mate of mine needs to upgrade his GFX card, the only problem is that his PC only has 230W power supply. Pretty much every card i've looked at requires more than that, does anyone know of a card that will work (AGP obvioiusly) he's looking to play BF2 on low settings. Thanks!

    Better upgrade the PSU whatever he gets. It MAY be possible to run a low-end newish GFX card on the existing one but if it ever goes pop it can take out a lot with it, so it's false economy. You can get perfectly respectable 400w+ PSUs for £40 - £50, and that's plenty of power
