I have a sapphire 6950 2GB dirt 3 edition.

So I checked "can I run it" website just to see and enjoy my new GPU's spec - then this happens

My CCC tells me the accurate Vram that i should have but my dxdiag won't. Does it really matter? Should I be worried?

PS: The links are just images - ever heard of puush?

I have GTX580 with 1,5GB of RAM and DxDiag shows me that I have 4GB of video RAM so I guess it is not acurate reading. Check it in GPU-z.

i think that you should have 500 watt right it only have 1x pci connector try to upgrade your psu atleast 700watt okthat make full power consumption to your 6950
you already notified about minimum requirement is 500 watt to get optimum us of 6950 you should upgrade your psu
me suggest cooler master corsair seasonic
for budget 700watt zebrioncs helpful hope it work
