Hi Guys,

I'm planning to buy a Sapphire HD 7850 GPU for my PC, i was just wandering if it's a good thing since my PSU is a Cooler Master eXtreme Power 500W? Currently, I have Sapphire HD 6850.

Thanks!

although im usually not a big fan of coolermasters low end psus(due to a good handful of them being false labels) if the psu can run a 6850 fine, it should run a 7850 fine as well i would thing. the 7850 is more efficient in terms of its consumption of power.

It was my bad buying that PSU since my 500W HEC Rapter II 80plus broke. Turns out that it was one of there false label PSUs
