oh, thanks for the quick responses! i didn't realize it was the complete system (silly me!), which is i guess why i asked. So you guys think i should give it a try with the stock 300W psu and see if it is adequate? this won't harm any of my components or anything if it isnt?
what should i look for that would indicate that it might not be enough power?
ps. i have not seen that card & PSU combo tested elsewhere and i even searched beyond these forums (the whole WWW)
edit: and why does the manufacturer, amd, (and especially tigerdirect) have such high min PSU recommendations when the highest load i have seen from multiple sources is around 250W?
