I own a emachine t5048 p4 524 with 2gb ram on windows xp. I wanted to upgrade my graphics card from my X1550


If not I was thinking about picking up the gt430

wow!

Either a 6570, 6670 or GT 430 would work, although it might not yield much of an improvement. I mean you're talking about a Pentium 4 system with DDR SDRAM. It's terribly outdated.

get the 6670 as it's the strongest out of that bunch and the lowest gpu worth buying new. it should work fine.

Should work fine on your PSU, yes.

I just got a 6570 myself but I couldnt run it with the 300w PSU my system had. I had to go out and get a 500w PSU now everything runs fine and even cooler cuz the PSU has better airflow.

Anyway the 6570 card recommends 400w.

Even if you need to buy a new PSU they are cheap I think I only paid 45$ for 500w.

It's not that I don't got a full 6 pack, I just lack the plastic thing that holds it all together.
