Amd Radeon HD 6870 question!?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay So I decided to upgrade my video card to something with a bit more power,I can get a very sweet deal on HD 6870 series which is not really state of the art but way better then 4850 im using now ,question is do I need to upgrade anything else,for example my power supply is 420w works just fine with my current vid card,but im worried it wont be enough to handle the new one,also will it have the same type of plug as my current one and any other useful advice is welcome as well maybe im forgetting something!

Honestly i think you X4 will bottleneck 6850 a little bit, but i dont know amd cpu to much.
with 420w I think you may be cutting it close, you can try it. but i would recommand a 500w at least.
If its a good quality 420w then it should be ok.
