I am aware of the meaning of TDP but how much of a say should it have in deciding on graphics card if your PSU meets min requiremens re watts and 12v rail amp on side of box?
I ask this because another forum used TDP to justify purchase of a new PSU along with new card decision
a c 189 U Graphics card

Many factors that need to be considered when you want purchase a graphic card beside TDP, like PSU, Motherboard, CPU, PC case, airflow, ambient temp, and what are you going to do with the card...
