Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Is almost as powerful

No ****ing way!!

-.- I paid $163 Canadian for mine yesterday.

Newegg.ca - Radeon HD 4830, Radeon HD 4000 series, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, Video Cards & Video Devices, Computer Hardware

Needless to say, the 4830 only trails behind the 4850 usually by 4~5 fps.

OK, here is what has been nagging me.

If I buy either the Radeon 4830 or 4850, could my power supply still run it OK? It says 450 watts are "recommended" on the site. I'm not exactly aiming to play Crysis on full settings or anything, just casually dishing out some Team Fortress 2 or screwing around in Garry's mod.

4670? Would his PSU handle the 9600 GSO/9600 GT? Maybe the 3850/3870.
