Default Re: Power Supply Help

450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended (550 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
ATI Radeon™ HD 4800 Series - System Requirements

Corsair is a very good psu manufacturer so being at the low end of recommende wattage is not a problem. You will be fine unless you plan to run CrossFire or a ton of hard drives and other accesories.

I always like a little more headroom just in case.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
