Will this run ati radeon 4850 card

i recently just put this computer together and made the mistake of assuming that higher model number is better well i went from a 4670 and skipped up to a 5670 as that was the best one(or so i thought) i could afford after actually looking stuff up iv come to realize that the 4850 is better so im wondering if it would be worth it to get the 4850 heres my psu

if it matters my motherboard is asus m4a785-m
cpu-phenom x4 9850@2.5ghz
4gb ddr2 800 ram

ill be playing games like starcraft 2 at 1600X900 resolution and would like to at least play on high settings with out lagging during big battles as far as money goes im gonna try selling the 5670 for like 80-90USD so anything 100 and under i can do

  1. Yes it will run HD4850 just fine.
  2. Yes, looking at it's specs i would say it can handle HD4850, but it's a very cheap PSU for 585W. Don't cheap out on PSU, it's the most important thing in your system. :)

    i only got that PSU because it came with my tower according to this pc probe program the cpu and motherboard are running at 36degrees it also lists the voltages as

    Vcore= 1.30
    +3.3V= 3.34
    +5V= 5.12
    +12V= 12.03

    i dont know anything about voltages but all of those values are lower then the max number in the nominal value column so i assume its a good thing
  4. Those numbers are all within ATX specs.
