  1. Raidmax not good get something else. Budget Antec or Corsair CX series is much better. Example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027
  2. your old PSU was only rated for 444 Watts Max on the 12 volt rails. in reality it can probably deliver under 400 Watts, maybe 350 since the combined current ratings of the 12 V rails is always higher than what can actually be delivered. its hard to say since they lumped the 3.3v and 5v wattage with the 12v so you can tell how bad it actually is. Don't get a replacement and expect it to work.
  3. how do you think this psu would work out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028
    Here my systems specs if it helps

    Psu:RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W < old psu thing im trying to replace.
    Case:inwin griffin yellow
  4. The 600 Watt would do fine. its rated for 480 Watts on the 12 volt. the 500 Watt rolli59 linked is rated 408W and would probably work as well. if I remember right the 4870 is a 225W part and the CPU should be under 100 though so I would lean toward the 600w
  5. I found this
