Hello there folks! I am planning to buy either the 4870 toxic 1gb edition or the new Ati 4890 1 GB..My psu is Enermax fma 2 535W which gives a combined 408 W@+12 V rail (which means 34A-->+12V1=22A, +12V2=22A)..The other components of my computer ara rather typical..
(Cpu c2duo e6400, 2*1gb ram, 1hdd,1 DVDRw etc..)

So, whats your opinion? Will my PSU handle the load? Or will it fail? Thnx a lot!! :bounce:

You're right..I am good indeed :D  Great vga, a silent cooler (at low fan-speed of course) and low temperatures too...Along with the o/c i did to my cpu, my rig is born again!! Whooray!!
