    Did i make a wrong decision buying this PSU or is it good ?

    If OP's PSU is MPE-5501-ACABW, the OEM is GosPower.

    Power Supply -- Focus Gold vs Leadex Silver -- 550W

    If you don't mind 230V input only (not full range APFC) and Taiwanese filtering caps in secondary side, SF 550W Silver is very good choice. Efficiency is almost at Gold 115V level.

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    That's why you need make backup and have PCI (yes, PCI) VGA card to place around you. If re-flashing VGA BIOS goes wrong, your PCI VGA can help. Thanks to my PCI S3 ))))) Don't sell PCI VGA! Keep the one for your need!

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    lexluthermiester, Aaron_Henderson - thanks! There are some BIOS files for my card in TPU database. May I take one with the highest GPU base clock and re-flash my card?

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    If you don't mind please tell or teach me - how lower value of GPU FRQ can give better performance (870MHz vs 1020MHz)? Looks like Anti-Boost, no? Just curious, sorry.

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    So, it works! Just did clean install Win7 SP1 + AMD 2020 drivers. 3DMark Fire Strike gives 9263 graphics score, 7229 overall (Physics 6069, Combined 3063) - all the data with 4GB RAM. But there is GPU core frequency jumping, from 870MHz to 1020Mhz. Is it normal for R9 280X? No way to deep into...

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    I can say more, it is 17'' :) LG L1760TR. Please uderstand me correct, this is just for fun PC with rare access to it. The last thing I want to add is 4GB RAM. SSD already installed. Basically there was an idea to spend only $100 for some components (including CPU). Almost done..:)

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    Since there are hundreds used VGAs on sale at my place by similar price range ($50) and GPU specs, yesterday I just picked one from the nearest seller with test+moneyback options. No plan to upgrade current monitor btw.

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    May be you got these results because of X48? It has PCI-E 2.0 x16, but my mobo has PCI-E 1.0 x16 (P35). Can the difference between 1.0 & 2.0 PCI-E versions affect overall GPU performance?

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    RAM is 4Gb currently, but no problem to add 4Gb more. To be honest I even can't imagine what games I'd like to play. I don't like online games, prefer games like Tomb Raider. My last gameplay on PC was in 2008, btw :))) As for our regional second hand market, there are a lot of VGAs such GTX...

    Xeon 5450 - what VGA should I choose?

    hat Thank you! There is pretty old Foxconn 8800GTS 320Mb board in my setup. Sure thing I am ready to go used. I am thinking about GTX 770, 660 (Ti) or other board up to $50, not more. Also, I checked my PSU recently (AcBel 550W) and it is still strong enough to feed dated VGAs + current Xeon oc'ed.

    Hello ALL, I'd like to resurrect my way old PC. Just for fun. Now it is running Gigabyte P35-DS3R + Xeon 5450 @ 3600. What graphics card will fit the CPU the most? Monitor is LG 1280x1024 DVI. Thanks in advance!
