I'm thinking of getting a geforce 430 but have been considering whether I need to get a new PCU or not?
Currently I have 255 w power supply in my computer and they recommend you have 300 w. I have looked around on the internet and found that under a heavy work load the actual power consumption of the geforce 430 is around 222 w.
So can I get away with keeping my 255 w psu and installing a geforce 430? whats the worse that will happen if It goes wrong?
Its a fairly new computer with 6gb ram, and an i3 processor. I require the graphics card so I can render out 3d work and work with video editing.
