Here are my computer specs from hp m9457c:

Power Supply:

Graphics Card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


From what I see I think it should work fine and support the new card, but I'm no expert, and maybe (probably) I'm forgetting something.

One thing I didn't see in the product specs from newegg is a 9 pin header for the power button and stuff on the computer? I don't know what a header is, but I'm guessing that just means that it's a 9-pin power connector.


Any help appreciated.

The Seasonic S12 is an excellent high quality power supply. It will have no problem powering a system with any single video card made.

Good Choice!

So that power supply has that 9 ping thing for my case? That was the only thing that confused me on the specs of my computer.

And what's the advantage of that video card over the one i picked? The one you linked to seems to have a lot of negative reviews on newegg

I am just a little bit confused about the "9 ping thing" that you mentioned.

Did you mean the 9-pin audio header on the motherboard for headphone-out and microphone-in (yellow, Vista capable, requires matching front audio jack module)?

A power supply cable is not connected to that 9 pin audio connection on the motherboard. Instead, audio cables on the front of the pc case for using a headphone and a microphone are connected to that connection on the motherboard.

I don't even know myself. =p
Well as long as it will run everything and will support my new 4890, I'm more than happy to get that one. Now I just have to decide on a final graphics card for my system and I'm set.

Once I get that next paycheck, I'll be cruising with a 4890 8D
