Default Re: Can this PSU handle a 4850?

ATI Radeon™ HD 4850 System Requirements

* PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
* 450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended

The 450 would handle it as Corsairs are top quality power supplies.

I always like a little headroom for future upgrades so if possible I would look in the 550 to 650 range.

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
