So, I bought a video card from newegg.com and I saw that it required a minimum of 250 watts. Well, it was a typo on newegg. The box says it requires a minimum of 350 watts or greater.
Does this mean I have to return it? I read on another board through research that it can still support it, it's just the PSU can't support the high-end cards. Apparently, this card isn't high-end according to newegg reviews and feedback from here.
What can / should I do? I DESPERATELY need to change my video card... my current one takes up a crapload of memory, as it uses shared.
trust me man you dont need to match specs. i ran a Jaton 8600GT (Minimum of 450 Watts) on my 300 watt dell psu.. turns out my whole system only used 180watts under load w/8600GT (Played COD4 for 2 hours before test)
