About two weeks ago, I blogged about updating my graphics card from the Nvidia GTX 260 to GTX 570. My power supply was just 525watt, but the minimum power recommended to run this graphics card is 550watt. I WAS SUPER SAD FACE ABOUT THIS! Everyone warned me that my system could overload and have a melt down so I needed to update my power supply right away. After purchasing a new 825watt power supply and watching some Youtube video tutorials, I’m happy to report that I have now installed my very first power supply! YAY.
If this does not help me take super amazing SL snapshots without crashing, then I give up!!!!
BTW YOU GUYS, installing your own graphics card and power supply is super easy. I’ve learned everything I know from Youtube video tutorials and saved myself a bunch of money by not having to hire GeekSquad.
