Closed HD 4830 power supply help needed Tags: Graphics Cards Power Supplies Power Graphics Last response: October 2, 2011 8:15 PM in Graphics & Displays Share fleang007 December 4, 2008 3:03:00 AM 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. thanks! -David More about : 4830 power supply needed JAYDEEJOHN a b U Graphics card December 4, 2008 5:51:01 AM Its showing 18 amps on the 12 volt rails, which is enough, but what cpu, and how many HDDs, DVD drives etc?
