Hello, I was wondering what you guys/gals think about installing an ATI Radeon 4350 into my Inspiron 530S with its 250w power supply. Minimum (recommended) ps requirements are 300. Any help is greatly

That's a negative. You'll get a crashy system most likely. 250Watts is only barely enough for onboard video.

I have two 4350 running on that exact same PSU and have been for well over a year without a single issue. The ATI 4350 hardly draws any power, you can run it with two gerbils on an exercise wheel.

This is directly off the ATI website.

For the Radeon 43xx series:
300 Watt or greater power supply (350 Watt for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode) is recommended

Judging from the poster above, it would look like its possible. But you never know. I would suggest just playing it safe and going with a 300+ watt PSU

its a good thing you guys don't post on the Power Supply Board

here is break down of total power used with an OC i-7 CPU. The ATI 5450 uses the same power as the 4350. At peak the system doesn't break 175w. Even with a 4650 ( acard that uses 2x the 4350 power) the system barely breaks 200w at peak.
