With the rig you have, I'd forget about overclocking, since you'll be going from slow to almost as slow. That 6800XT is going to be an easy 4 to 8 times faster than your Geforce4MX, with added support for every current game. Good cheap choice. The power draw is pretty low too, I would say you're fine with a 400W, but don't OC and have good case airflow, heat impacts on a PSU's performance too!
, still obviously doing the rounds then !
It would actually be a lot better if umanzor
was going for one of the old 6800LE's because it's default speeds of 325/700 are much better than the 300/533 speeds of the 6800XT being considered ?
The 6800LE also had the advantage that it's pipes could be usually unlocked from default of 8x1,4vp to anything between 12x1,5vp and the full 16x1,6vp level of a 6800gt. And it overclocked like hell, eg, my old 6800le still runs fine at 425/900 !
However the card in question is not a 6800le as I know it, so unlikely to provide any real performance, unless heavily overclocked above it's default 300/533 ---> if that's actually possible?
The 6800xt at the link below would be a much better bet since it's default speeds are 350/800, and it appears to use same NV40 gpu as on original 6800le/nu/gt cards !
