500W for a HD4850 CF w/ 3850?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is my current PSU (in system) enough to power a P35 with a Q6600, an HD4850 and HD3850, and the same memory, cooling, etc. I'm figuring that would be a nice step-up over the course of this summer.

CPU = processor, i guess you mean PSU?
Well, it could power it, but if i were you, i'd look for a 650W one.

One 3850 is 110w and one 4850 is 95w so somewhere around 200w but they are from 12v rails so technically, a good 550W should work. Good PSU like corsair 650tx is pretty cheap so get one.

Whoops, couple of mistakes. My PSU is 500 watts and I meant PSU not CPU (thanks dasparx).
Thanks for your help, guys. I was hoping to take the money I'm now going to have to spend on a PSU to get DDR2 1066. Oh well!
I added a link in the first post with my PSU in it.
