i am getting this card soon and i know it needs at least a 450 watt psu, so i want to get a 500 watt psu in case i want to upgrade in the future...
the psu has to be from newegg.ca, since im living in canada. any help is strongly appreciatedhttp://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102873&nm_mc=OTC-sho6b0tCA&cm_mmc=OTC-sho6b0tCA-_-Video+Cards-_-Sapphire+Tech-_-14102873
First off, if you have 50 more dollars, I would recommend you to jump to the 58xx series and buy this card - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102878
I have a HIS HD 5850 iCooler V (plain) and it is not very different from 5830 but way ahead of 57xx series cards. Just a suggestion.
I would recommend at least a 550W 80-series power supply. I personally find Antec 550W/650W or Corsair 650W power supplies best for gaming rigs. The reason why I say that is there is almost no price difference between 500W and 550W/650W power supplies when it comes to the extra room and cables you get.
