Looking at that i thought it would work on my Thermaltake 430W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
because of my computer specs:
/\ That power supply.
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2160 @ 1.8Ghz
1.5GB Ram (1 - 512MB DDR2 800Mhz | 1 - 1GB DDR2 667Mhz)
320GB Hard drive.
16x multi-format/dual-layer LightScribe DVD drive.
So it doesn't seem it would take too much power away from the graphic card? I think i could try right? But then again radeon 4850 needs an 450W or greater..
By the way, my knowledge of computers isn't very good. D:

You should be able to run that no problem on a 400+ watt. Your setup will run on a 350watt fine. I'm only concerned with the PSU.

It says 450 or greater as each system config are different. OCing values, HDD, etc... But from you spec its fine. A friend of mine running Q6600 OCed, dual 4850 on a 550watt.

But its 65% effeciency. Might want to go for this one instead:

$69after rebate. Much more solid PSU. 80% effeciency.

How can you say there is no problem and still be concerned???


430w is indeed fine with some room to overclock that cpu... duial 1.8ghz is a little too slow for a high end gpu.
I would not mix 512MB 800Mhz and 1GB 667Mhz however.
