Thanks for the response. Checked newegg, specs tend to list 450W recommended. Is that just marketing spiel? I don't have a anything else really high power going on - one hard drive, intel core2duo E8400, wireless networking card. nothing fancy.

if u have a branded psu , get a 4770 for 99 dollars from newegg today . the 4850s are costlier , and u could overclock that 4770 .

edit : sapphire 4770 .

Videocard Manufacturers suggested PSU ratings are to compensate for the cheap overrated, unbranded PSUs that are all to common. If you have a decent PSU, you should be fine.

Thanks guys. It's corsair psu, so I'll decide what my specific price point is and choose from your suggestions.

If it's a Corsair then in your price range you can also handle a GTS 250 or if you are willing to expand it a HD5770 is a very nice card.
