Hi I just want to ask if my current CPU specs will not destroy my gpu… I got a very low spec cpu. cause thats all I can Afford thou I got a pretty decent GPU now. And I was just trying to assure not to destroy it.
So first heres my specs.
Note: this one passes the minimum requirements for the GPU to work.
CPU: Core2duo e4500 2.20Ghz
MOBO: LGA775 (32bit)
RAM: 1GB 667
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX260+
HDD: 250GB IDE
Power Supply: 500 watts true rated; (I dont know if the term true rated is only used here in our country, but what it means is that it is more efficient and reliable.)
now what I’m worried is the possibility that I will destroy my gpu… I havent put this build together yet… coz I’m afraid somethings bad is goin to happen.
#1 someone told me that with a generic power supply and wrong specs of CPU, I could possibly destroy my GPU…
#2 someone also told me that its not true and any kind of Power supply (as long as it can supply enough power for the GPU and the whole PC) and with any kind of CPU specs (as long as it meets the minimum requirements for the GPU) it will work. and if it happens that you didn’t meet the specs, The worst thing that could happen is the GPU will not work and it will not be destroyed.
I dont know what to believe :spin: So now I’m hoping you guys can help me. who am I goin to believe? Ive tried searching the net but it seems that there is no exact forums or articles about the compatibility of GPU with the other parts of the computer.
