I'm not an over clocker kinda guy. I play GTA IV occasionally, usually do a lotta heavy photoshop stuff. Will I be able to run an ATI HD4870x2 2GB safely in this setup? What is the worst case scenario if I run it, and things go wrong?
More about4870x2 power consumption thread
you should check the required specs for psu on a 4870x2 card If you have the card try it who know worst that could happen is it wont work but it won't break it
That is a mediocre quality, underpowered psu for your system. Worst case, and likely case, is that the psu fries and kills your entire system with it. Get a quality psu 650W or higher psu such as Corsair, PCP&C, Seasonic, etc
