whats the biggest video card anyone has heard of running in a shuttle(stable)
You can put any video card, all that matters is power from the psu...
Shuttle offers a 8800gts for their shuttle, but the GTX is not available yet.
i have a 1950pro agp coming this week... i wanna know if the shuttle is capable...
theres only 1 open molex
what psu does it have?
The shuttles with the 8800gts have 400w psu.
i have a 250w ps. i can only get the 300 upgrade for mine.
Then don't go above either a 2600xt, 8600gts or 7600gt
And you probably wont want to try to overclock.
Do you have an open 5 1/4" bay? If so, you could try an aux psu, like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104019
That 250w psu can handle a x1900pro
My own x1900xtx was in a shuttle psu for testing and it done allright. With 250w Shuttle psu.
is that with my current psu? or will the 300w work you think?
the only open bay i have is the floopy drive.
I mean with the 300... I wouldn't put much at all on a 250 personally...
Don't try this one... Dang lucky you didn't fry anything... Must have been really low power consuming processor, ram, hard drive etc.... Considering the 1900Gt and 1900xtx both draw around 130 watts.
It was a socket 939 Board one 160gb s-ata drive, a 4000+ (non ee or something so 95 watt rated)
And everything worked very well while playing games and stuff.
I mean u didnt reach high peak in games. Beacuse either the cpu isnt stressed 100% or gpu istn stressed.
So for me it worked perfectly.
Although go get the numbers.
What cpu is ind your shuttle atm?
And what other components?
And honestly the 300w psu will get all the stuff easy.
3.4 prescott 478socket
Ya don't even think about it.... Not even consider in the slightest.... That chip is a power monster!
I have a Shuttle SN95G5v3 which uses a 240W PSU - everything in my is being powered by it and I can't say I've had any issues. Only issues I have got have been from my own fault and a bent pin on my 160GB HDD. Shuttle's PSUs are fantastic and I've been able to run mine fine for years without any over-heating issues or the alike.
Johnny5 - what model XPC d'you have?
The model number is sb61g2, old 478 p4 barebone
my motherboard died in my fulltower and have a new 1950pro coming in 2 days and dont feel like forking 200+for a new mobo.. used at that..
My m8 ran an 8800GTX in his, but it got WAY too hot because of the Shuttles poor air flow
It will be fine m8
Smooth - I made a thread over 'ere about fitting a X1950 into any of the G series chassis without having to mod anything. I hope you find it of some interest.
Completely forgot about this thread, how'd you get on Johnny5?
