  1. Best answer
    If it's a GX series definitely not. Anything else I would say maybe. The minimum requirements for a 5850 are 500W.
  2. The psu is Cooler master thunder 450w

  8. If the power supply is good quality, then it'll turn off if the graphics card uses too much power. This will generally happen when you're running a demanding game and the graphics card is in full gear for a while. Note that this doesn't happen when booting, only at full load.
    If the power supply is bad, then all kinds of things can happen. Generally if the current is enough it'll work But if there is a power outage etc or something like that, the PSU may go out.

    The power supply you linked is really only a 360W power supply. I wouldn't try to run a 151W card on it. Personally, I don't think you should chance it.
    That's the tradeoff- since you're getting the GPU second hand(and it's nowhere near a weak one I'd say) you have to spend some decent money for powering it.

    Oo..i..c... btw i Found tht my gpu needs 2x PCI Power Adapters of 6pins....so does the thunder 450w hav these cables to connect my psu...or i hav 2 buy extra cables to connect d power slot
  11. Your power supply will have a 6+2 pin probably. you have to buy a 8-pin to 2 6pin cable like this one:

    Don't know if you can get it in your local store though.

    thnx 1c again for all your help....it really help me a lot....And now i'm to buy the thunder 450w psu....
  13. I say again.. I do NOT think you should chance it.
    Buy this PSU, this will run the GPU comfortably, and has 2 6 pin cables.
