Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm currently in the process of upgrading my computer.
Just bought a XFX geforce 9800GTX+ and Intel Core2duo E8400. Can't remember the motherboard's model as I'm not home but it's a X38 chipset from Asus.
Now, the thing is, I have a 550W powersupply which currently gives me all the gigawatts I need. However on the graphics card box it says Nvidia recommends a power supply of 450W or more, and XFX recommends 630W or more.
Would running the card with my currect powersupply result in explosions or something similar? Or just a loss in performance until I can get it the juice it needs?
