dont get me wrong i know its not enough, ordered a 750w corsair
however, i would like to try my 500w power supply to see if it runs my 4870x2
if it does bluescreen because of of lack of power, will it damage the card? thanks
More about4870x2 power supply advice please
It should not. Unless the psu is defective, the most that could happen is your computer crashing and rebooting. If you're really unlucky the OS could hit some software error in the crush, but the hardware should be fine.
