It's a good quality unit and i've read some forums with people using stronger gpu's with it no problem. The 4650's recommended 350W covers all the crappy psu's out there. Your psu doesn't fall in that category. m 0 l ct1615 a c 165 ) Power supply March 23, 2011 3:07:01 AM plenty of power for your system. you can even power the GTX 460 with it. it peaks above 380w. review http://www.anandtech.com/show/3902/antec-earthwatts-ea-... bit-tech gaming build http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/buyers-guide/2011/03/1... m 0 l Related resources Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D good enough? - Forum Antec Earthwatts 750 good enough for i7 gaming pc? - Forum $300 upgrade w/ Athlon II X4 620 - is Antec True 480 enough power? - Forum Upgrading to Phenom II x4 965BE good enough? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
