This is my first post - and as you'll see I'm completely new to computing.
Basically I have a Pentium D, 3 GHz, 512 MB RAM and I want to be able to run games like Command and Conquer 3.
However there are some issues:
1) I have an AGP slot (that supports 4x and 8x AGP cards) (and there's also a PCI slot)
2) The power supply is only 200W.
3) The PC is a Shuttle-X PC, so it's all very compact. I thought that this would mean that I wouldn't be able to simply buy a standard replacement 400W PSU.
so, does anyone have any ideas on what I should do? Do I simply use an AGP card which only requires 200W (and would this actually cater for standard games)? Do I change the PSU, in which case I have no idea on how to go about doing this given the PC type.
Thanks Robbie. I've contacted them now, and now waiting to hear. I'll let you know of the outcome. The funny thing is that I only wanted to play Command & Conquer 3 and I was only looking to spend £90! Looks like it will be cheaper just to buy an XBox.
I downloaded the demo of C&C 3 and it demands a pretty good card, because of that you will have to upgrade the power supply, and between the power supply (even if you can get a higher rated one that will fit) and the price of the graphics card you will not get both for only £90.
