HP Pavilion a1510n
AMD Athlon 64 Processer 3800+
2.41 GHz, 1GB of ram
Windows XP Media center edition
Motherboard: Asus A8N-LA
Recently... I added a GPU from the built in Nvidia 6150LE to the Zotac Nvidia Geforce 8600GT
The performance increased, but not by alot... Became laggy at times.
temp on idle is 53-54
temp on High stress maxed out directly at 70
It became a bit laggy for some games so it worries me if i dont have enough power to supply my GPU. I was wondering if my GPU is working at 50% efficiently rite now cuz this doesnt feel ALOT faster than i expected.
currently 300W of power from PSU. Which is the Min for this model. I was thinking about a 400W upgrade.
okay to summarize all of this.
I think my gpu isnt running at 100% because power demands arnt met. Not sure how to check.
Any suggestions are GOOD. =)
