Default Radeon X700-Pro (ABIT) requirements

Before you think im too lazy to search a few web sights, my question is towards requirements on my powersupply

I have bought battlefield 2 recently and loved it. Unfortunatly it runs on low because of my weak graphics. I will type my specs below to see of my computer will support a RX700-pro 256PCI-e (specificly my power supply)

Small formfactor case with 270watt Powersupply
Intel ASUS 915G chipset motherboard
Intel P4 540J 3.2 GHz w/ HT technology
Abit ATI Radeon x300 PCI-e (soon to be replaced card)
5.1 motherboard surround sound
WindowsXP Professional 2005

Note: Small Form Facter case does not use half hight cards.

1GB PC3200 DDR400 RAM
Intel Pentium 4 540J HT 3.2 GHz

The Pentium will need around 110 watts, and the Video card will need around 60 watts. That leaves 100 watts to be divided between your hard drive/cd drive, sound card/memory/and motherboard. If the calculations work, it should be no problem.

Your probably better off going with a new power supply.
6600GT PCI-E for sale/Trade. Check the FS/FT forums on tech-forums for details.
