My guess is you should be to go.

Gravemind123 July 22, 2008 3:14:52 AM Should work fine, although it isn't the best power supply, it should handle an HD 4870. MolotovRuss October 1, 2008 10:05:35 AM I built a system recently, slapping in a Radeo HD4870, and I'm having a lot of problems with running games @ 1440*900, I think it's down to my PSU? Some games I play, about 1 minute in (on lowest gfx) will crash, with the screen's graphics going all distorted in little squares all over the screen, and I'll just have to turn the pc off manually. Other games running full screen and lowest gfx settings will just lag out about eveyr 1 minute for a few seconds, before continuing, but will eventually crash. I'm usually an old 500w PSU, so I think that's my problem (as this gfx card is a power GUZZLER). So if I were to buy a CorsAir HX620w, would that suffice? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-EPS12V-Modular-Version-... MolotovRuss October 1, 2008 11:39:11 AM Can Anyone Help?
