    Questions about my video card

    Right now im running a dell dimension e521
    It has a crappy geforce 6150 le card in the motherboard
    it has only 1 pci express x16 slot

    I would like to know what video card would be good for this computer
    also tell me if a stock power supply would be able to handle the card

    TY

    Explain what wattage your Power Supply is so I could recommend a GPU that can run on it without upgrading...

    Radeon HD 5670 and below requires a 400w PSU

    Even if the "stock"PSU is like 400w, you could probaly run a HD6770

    I would use a 450w-500w PSU for that card, just to make sure it boots...

    The part number on the PSU is FSP460-60GLC. it is a 460w Power supply, I would just get a 5770 tbh not much you can get away with on an athlon.

    It's a thread about "geek" stuff, so you should be expecting "geek talk".
