over 600w? lol you dont need nothing that high i ran a HD4870 on an Antec earthwatts 430 for almost 6 months with not a single problem as long as you have a decent PSU 500w to be safe :p  (if you like to play safe ;) )

At load... consumption range reaches ~500W. So it'll be better to have more..

No your CPU is fine. My buddy has a 2x 4800+ with a 4850 and runs awesome.


The 4850 recommends a 450W PSU. What do you need 600W for? A "Quality" 450w will be sufficient.

The 4850 is the best value right now. If you can afford more pick up the 4870 or 9800GTX+

I think 450W minimum needed... why bay at minimum?
