Can my PSU run this card

I am thinking to buy this card:

and my current config is:

- Intel Core i7 920
- BioStar x58
- 4 GB Ram
- Two Hard drives 500 GB and 200 GB
- One DVD writer

No over clock used

My PSU is HEC Ace Power 480W, so can it run with this PSU I will never do OC or add new components in the short time.

if the VGA is not suitable can you please tell me if one of the following are suitable as I dont have all models available in my country

Asus 260 GT ,XFX 250 GTS

Other thoughts: Do I have to think about ATI ? is there many games depend on the physx ?

please advice

thanks c

  1. What about getting an ATI 5770 or 5850?

    A 5770 is almost equal to a 4870 or GTX260, and is cheaper than a GTX260.

    A 5850 costs $300, but is better than a GTX285.

    Both 5770 and 5850 support dx11, support eyefinity, run cooler, and use less power. A 5850 runs better than a GTX285 but use less power than a GTX260.
  2. thanks about your advice , but what you think about Asus gtx 275 can it run on my PSU ? I use this calculator

    and it gave me 350 W
  3. any one plz
  4. I won't dare to use gtx 275 on HEC Ace Power 480W PSU. It seems not reliable if u asked me.
    If u want to keep your PSU then buy 5770, don't worry about physX, u will be okay with 5770. :)
  5. In my Opinion Gtx 275 Will run Smoothly on Ur PSu
  6. thanks alot guys , how about 5850 , will it run on my psu ?
