Corsair 400w PSU and 9800GT

Hello, I had a question about a video card I just purchased. I found this 9800GT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814261023) for a very good deal today so I went ahead and picked it up to upgrade from my 4670. The power supply I'm using is a 400w corsair psu (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139008) The 9800GT says it requires a 450w PSU although I was wondering if the PSU I have might be able to handle it?

  1. It can handle it perfectly well. Manufacturers exaggerate a bit on the power requirements of GPU's. Any half decent 400w PSU would handle a 9800GT no problem and since yours is a Corsair then no need to worry

    You do not need to upgrade your PSU to use that card unless it doesn't have the right connectors (and you can't find adapters). When I say that I mean you need two 6 pin and you only have one or something. IIRC you should have no issues.
