Hoping for help on this.

I just purchased a Power color HD4830. I have a Asus P5k-VM and hoping to add this card to a Micro ATX mid tower.

I need to upgrade my PSU since it wont power up (no name 300w supply).

I have heard good things about Seasonic SS-350SFE but wondering if its been field testing with this (its a whole 100W below the suggested Wattage).

My main limitation is I can't find SFF or mATX PSU with high enough power.

My only other alternative is to find a larger case with I'd prefer not too.

Its showing 18 amps on the 12 volt rails, which is enough, but what cpu, and how many HDDs, DVD drives etc? For a total power amount for your system?

You'd better monitor the temps with that setup. If the video card overheats it won't work.

I set up the psu works fine without the hd4830, however when i plug in the molex 6pin (two 4 pins going back to psu with adapter) the system won't even start up. Is there a compatiablity issue with the asus p5k-vm motherboard?
