Will this PSU be good for this GPU and run on this Mobo?

I have an old, used Athlon 64 X2 that I wish to put to good use. I was wondering will this PSU be good for either of these Mobos?

Plus, I also want to know if this PSU will support either a 4850 or 4870?


Much appreciated and thanks in advance!

  1. For $69 there are much better psu's out there.

    For that system and a 4870 a corsair or Antec 500w is plenty.

    I'd recommend against any Foxconn motherboards.
  2. The reason I picked the OCZ is because due to the fact that it is a modular supply. I want to cable manage the case when I start putting it together, so that was one of the reasons why I wanted to use a modular supply.

    beanoslim, here is the PSU I posted earlier,

    Great mobo, but I never boughten an open box item. Does it come everything else (CDs, Cables, etc.) except for the box?

    Good choice I own one myself, the Corsair is a better unit for $10 but the OCZ will do you fine.

    I don't know, I wish I could purchase from Newegg but I'm in the UK.
    From what I understand sometimes they are missing cables, backplate, driver discs etc.

    For that price it wouldn't bother me, you can get all the drivers from the website and you probably have cables.
    It is a micro ATX, but you could stick a PII in it if you wanted.
    Heres an ATX one - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131618R
    Anyway I'll leave that decision up to you, happy building.
  4. Thanks!!!

    However, I do have yet another question. Just to clarify, the CPU is an Athlon 64 X2 4600+ @ 2.4GHz will that be a good for the 4870? I wanted to go the Nvidia route for the GPU, but I don't want to bottleneck the CPU.
