I am pretty sure I already know the answer to this question, but I wanted to double-check. A buddy of mine would like to try out my video card, and his current power supply is a Corsair Builder's Series 500 watt power supply. His power supply has the two required 8-pin pci-e connectors, and it will fit in his case. The video card box suggests a 700 watt power supply though. I read through some reviews and the power draw on a card like this is relatively low, granted you don't overclock it. My friend doesn't do any overclocking or stress-testing, so I am wondering if he will be okay using this card for a few days? He is also running a couple of caviar blue hard drives, 4gb of 1333mhz ram, I believe he has a disc drive, and he is running a micro-atx mobo with an AMD 965 be processor with no overclock. Thanks for the help!
