Can anyone tell me if the x1950 gt would work with my power supply?

I have this one: Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

Yep...It will work fine with that power supply. That FSP AX400-PN, can supply more power than what most people think.

When I had the X1950Pro on that power supply, it worked flawlessly.

well... considering my friend just bought a dell with a q6600 8600gts 360 gb hard drive and 2 cd drives... i'm sure it can power your system just fine...

i'm so mad at my friend for not letting me build his computer for him...
