Shuttle SS51G v2 with 6800 GT ?

Fri Jun 17, 2005 3:08 pm

I've been running a GeForce ti4600 in my shuttle box for the past few years. I'd like to upgrade to a 6800 GT, but I want to make sure that the SS51G v2 can handle it before I spend the $$$.

Here's my current system setup sans vid card.

Shuttle SS51G v2
2.4 GHz P4 (533Mhz FSB)
512 MB Kingston PC2700 RAM
80 GB Seagate Barracuda
Samsung 52x24x52x16 combo drive
Sony 1.44MB Floppy drive

I'd appreciate any help you guys can give me on this. Thanks.

As long as the case airflow is good enough and your psu > 400 ish, you should be in business.

the shuttle does not have a 400 watt PSU. it's a SFF box that TR loves to review. that said, I have no idea if it can handle it, seems to be a tossup.

It will be fine. For most SFF needs you really need to go here --->

Ask your question there. You might need to upgrade to the SilentX 250W Shuttle PSU.
