XFX Radeon HD 4550 / 512MB and this only requires a 300 watt psu

You could use a program like this to test your systems requirments for the new graphics card?

What would you say is better, XFX Radeon HD 4550 or 8600GT? or would you say the 4350?

rep left but Ill be ok with a graphics card that doesnt take more than 300w.

Otherwise this would have been perfect: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0036DD4CY/ref=nosim/?tag=hotukdeals-21

hd4550 (512mb) is faster than the 4350 not sure if the 8600 gt requires a 300 watt psu or higher , if that is only 300w then will be a bit faster but only a 256 mb card so depends on what you need it for.

Visual/areo and watching movies etc, the odd game but very rare.

then the 4550 is the best, you can also get a fanless one

The 8600 GT is better though is it not? looking at tomshardware it seems to be higher up.

markeh showed me this http://www.lambda-tek.com/componentshop/index.pl?origin=gbase20.2&prodID=B240553 how come it is so cheap compared to the one posted above by jubbyme?

Thanks

The 8600 gt (256 mb or 512 mb) is a good card but requires a 350 watt psu recommended, so i would get the 4550 as this only requires a 300watt psu but its up to you

mate just go for the 8600gt it should be fine shouldnt need a lot of power as it doesnt have a pci-e external power connecter it draws all of its power from the motherboard. https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/XFX+GeForce+8600+GT+256MB+GDDR3+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=39659
