I currently have a Shuttle SN25p with an Nvidia 7800GT card and am looking to upgrade the graphics to something a little more recent, the obvious choice appears to be a single slot Radeon 4850. the case has a (high quality) 350W supply. Has anyone tried out this combination?

Processor is an S939 X2 4200+ 2Gb of RAM running Vista x64. I wont be running games at more than 1024 X 768 as the unit is hooked up to a Widescreen TV.

It's all up to the 12V ramps (rails) it has.

If that PSU can deliver 18A on a 12V ramp to the card only, you shouldn't have any problem.

Now, on the ATi page, 430W or less PSUs don't show to be capable with the 4850.

Supposedly it can manage 19A on the 12V rail, so right on the limit. How would the 9800Gt compare to the 4850. as an aside people have sucessfully run 8800GTS cards using the stock PSU.

Is it a shared rail? Are there more connectors sharing that rail?

If not, then u're fine. If it does, i can't really tell... =/
