As the title says, I need a suggestion on choosing a used graphics card.
Both cards are about 40 euros where I live, but, the thing is, I got a 450 w PSU and I don't
know, will the power supply be enough for the faster card (Radeon HD 4870).
My apologies, but I can't provide the PSU brand or exact power output, cause I don't have it right now.
I was just told that is an 450 w power supply, (35 dollars new, if that helps in the quality section) and
I think that it will be enough for the 4850, but I am not sure about the 4870.
My options right now are, buy a graphics card with no knowledge of the psu,
or buy GPU and a used PSU just to be sure.
it would definitely work.. but id get a psu just to be on the same side but if you decide to not buy a psu then just dont overclock it
"just don't overclock it" Won't help a thing if it can't run it in the first place... If the PSU has low amps on the 12v line it won't work.. simple as that. You can have 450w PSUs that only have something like 12-16 amps on the 12v... meaning it would only provide 144w-192w... and would not function, and could fry and take out other parts of your computer.
