Do you think my hec 585 PSU would be enough when i switch video cards or is it a problem waiting to happen? ty More about : 4870 psu question Axeon April 12, 2009 8:04:37 PM It looks like it has 39W on the 12V rails combined, it'll run. BUt you'd might consider a Corsair PSU. ryceratops April 12, 2009 8:07:58 PM ah thank you Can't find your answer ? Ask !

If what he states is true, then it should work since a stock speed HD 4870 consumes about 135w or 11.3A under load. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
