Hi!

I have a new Amd t1055 cpu and biostar 890gx board that has 1 pci-e 16x on it with 500w Ultra brand PSU.

I got a OCZ 500w psu comming.

I have been eyeballing the Evga 465 at a very good price, I was wondering is it kosher to run that nvidial card on amd chipset with only 500watt.

Nvidia says it needs a 550watt, but I was wondering if a good 500w psu could handle 6 core 125w chip and 465.

Thanks a bunch for your help

You could run it on the OCZ 500w PSU, however;

You would be better off getting a GTX460 1GB version, its cheaper than and better than the 465, to top it off you will have less power consumption.

^+1 -- with the release of the 460 1GB. the 465 is hard to justify (the performance is lower or equal and the price is higher as well as the power consumption) -- Unless as you say it is a very good price !

Yes a single card of either brand will work fine -- the only time it becomes a problem is if you want to run multiple cards since an ATI MOBO will not support SLI and an Nvidia MOBO will not support Xfire !
