[Pi] Upgrade video card from Nvidia GeForce 6500?

Postby Northernlight » Sat Oct 04, 2008 0:23

I plan to upgrade the video card supplied with my system (Scaleo P PD 945 1 1,0G) from the Nvidia GeForce 6500 to the PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800 GT 512MB PCIe SLI-Ready Graphics Card VCG88512GXPB (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... G88512GXPB).

According to the system requirements for the 8800 GT card, it needs at least a 450W power supply.

Can anyone advise the spec of the Scaleo P power supply? Is it up to delivering the required current without having to replace the PSU?

If I need to replace the power supply can anyone recommend a cheap but effective and reliable solution?

I also want to upgrade RAM from the basic 1GB supplied with the system to at least 3GB, if anyone has any advice on compatible modules I would also be grateful.

Many thanks.

It appears that I'm going to have to invalidate my extended warranty prematurely and open the case to inspect the label on my power supply since no one else, including the mod team has offered any advice let alone provide the requested information...

Disappointing, I had expected better from a forum representing a major computer manufacturer.
