Psu requirement for xfx hd 4890

guys i've got a cooler master 500w psu and just bought a hd4890 which has 2 6pin connectors.
my concern being whether my 500w psu will do good to the gpu i bought without blowing up my rig..?
is there any measures to be taken? coz i really cant change the products anymore for now since im dead broke :)


comp specs:
core2 quad q9300 @2.5 Ghz
dg33tl mobo
4gb transcend
coolermaster 500w psu
xfx hd 4890 1 gig gddr5
cm 690 chassis

  1. If its an extreme series then change it if you can. Corsair VX550W.
    Which country are your from?
  2. u have a decent brand PSU there, i'm sure it can handle 4890... :)
  3. I would characterize the CoolerMaster PSU as "adequate", not "decent.
