Doesn't make any sense that VGA would be better than DVI/HDMI as the former requires a D/A and then A/D conversion (assuming you have a digital display like an LCD).


Did you try turning off GPU...

Yeah determining the hole spacing will be tough. I searched on intarwebs and only came up with the higher end ATi cards' spacing which is 53.x mm or something like that. However I think the lower...

You know what I was thinking? You should be able to just take the cooler off that 4650 you have there and then mount it to another card. I'm actually not sure what the GPU heatsink mount spacing is...

Essentially the lower wattage ones are just lower clocked for the most part. To get down to similar TDP as the CPU you have now, you're looking at a 2.3Ghz-ish AII/Phenom II quad core.


Hmm...

I think it will cool fine with a fan of some sort. I mean the passive cooler is already rated for it and it's not exactly a big TDP card or anything. Granted, I'm not sure why Silverstone decided...

R7 250 is about the modern-day equivalent to the 4650 you have in there now. However, though it is several generations newer and is faster than your old 4650, it's not really useful for much gaming...

Actually I was slightly mistaken. You can't get 10-bit output for HDMI even with the adapter; 10-bit for HDMI can only be had when you use a native HDMI port. However pixel format and audio do work...

This should work given you have an R9 card. However on AMD cards you can't use a standard DVI-HDMI adapter as that will not allow audio. Instead you need a genuine ATi/AMD adapter which will enable...

However even at 4.5Ghz, the overall...
