Would this PSU will be enough for the XFX Radeon HD 4830 Video Card - 512MB DDR3

XFX radeon HD 4830 requirements recommend a 450 watt power supply and a 75 watt 6-pin connector.
I'm not sure if my power supply can handle this card. My PSU is http://www.factorydirect.ca/catalog/product_spec.php?pcode=PO0585
Ty and I hope My PSU is enough.

  1. It should be enough.
  2. In theory it should be enough. There's quite a bit of technical information missing on that product page. I couldn't help but notice the psu only comes with a one year warranty. A high quality, stable, reliable power supply should come with a five year warranty.

    What are the rest of your specs? How many amps does the PSU list under 12V?
  4. A few things to remember:

    1. That PSU is a no name brand.

    2. W = A*V

    3. We do not know the breakdown of the amps on the +12 rail or if the wattage rating is the MAX output.

    My recommendations:

    OCZ OCZ StealthXStream 600W

    This PSU is much better quality and has the needed amps on the +12 rail.

    Get a quality PSU from Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Antec, OCZ.
  5. I believe that PSU has 2 x 12V at 18A each: http://btecanada.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/10530
  6. ^ Ok, the PSU seems to have the Amps, but it's still a no name brand.
  7. And it looks ugly

  9. Not sure. It's been years since I risked a system on a no-name PSU like that. Trouble is, just about every competent technical review (e.g. jonnyguru, hardocp, hardwaresecrets) I've read on them features escaping magic blue smoke, some on as low as a 60% load.

    Think thats what jtt283 is referring too
  11. That's one of 'em, yeah, but there are lots of others. Anyone still have a link to that video of those four Raidmax "500W" PSUs all blowing chunks at 375W?
  12. Hmmm, that might have been it. I thought there were four of them, but oh well. I think the point was made.
  13. ^ thats the one ive been trying to find for ages DellUser1 thanks for putting me at ease
