I only looked at the box when I read your post, I simply assumed a HD4830 would run on a 400w PSU.

Since when is Enermax low quality?

An HD 4670 will run easily on a 400w.

4870 draws 190w peak and the 4850 maxs at 135W

I didn't bother to look at his brand or whatever, I was merely saying potentially low quality. Anyways, I've been saying the hd 4670 would run on it the whole thread. Relax.

Thanks for the advice. I was away for the weekend so i couldnt get to the computer. Dont really know how much im willing to spend, and my power supply is by no means low quality.

So is it safe to assume that the ATIs are better than any nvidia gpus out there?

It's personal choice really, I have a GTX260 and love it, I'm definitely staying with nVidia (partially brand loyalty, partially ATI linux drivers suck).

A single 4870 will run on a quality 400w psu.

And no, not all ati cards are better than nvidia...GTX 295 is at the top of the chain right now followed by the 4870X2, GTX 285 and GTX 280.

might be nice of you to actually post the link for said "magical list" when you decide to patronize me by mentioning it the way you did.
