480W Power Supply enough for Nvidia GeForce GTS 450?
I have been wanting to upgrade to an Nvidia GeForce GTS 450. I'm getting bored of running Battlefield Bad Company 2 on low settings with my XFX ATi Radeon HD 4670. I wanted to know if my PSU is good enough for it. According to tigerdirect.com, it says that the minimum PSU requirement is 400W. I just want to make sure that I'm not cutting it too close or anything. Here are my computer specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit) AMD Athlon II X4 620 @ 2.6GHz (not overclocked) 4GB DDR2 memory (2 sticks @ 2GB per stick) XFX ATi Radeon HD 4670 (not overclocked) 480W Black Steel PSU
If this helps, these are the numbers on the 2 rows of my PSU:
Alright guys, thanks for the reply's! I probably buy a new PSU then.
get a high quality unit from corsair, nzxt, seasonic, antec, etc. do not buy a cheap psu, like huntkey, raidmax, okia, coolmax, powmax, basically you get the point
Better get a HD5770 or even better wait for a few weeks for the new ATI 6 series to hit the stores. The 450 is a new arrival, the price is not set yet and definitely it will be cheaper soon. The 5770 is getting cheaper by the day.
