Bestec PSU good for x800?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It is a Bestec 300W psu.

Is that good enough to run an x800pro or x800gto. If it isn't I'll just settle for an x700, which has lower psu requirements, right?

It is a reasonably new comp that came with pci-e slot. I don't know why they would only put in a 300w psu though.

No. 300W is junk for anything new. If it's got an x800 it's bound to have other good stuff...300w is just not enough headroom for anything like that.

What are your other specs? Fill in your system under the "user cp"

It didn't come with the x800. I'm thinking of upgrading to one but I don't know if my psu is good enough. I'm currently running a crappy 9250 256MB DDR PCI that I transfered from my old comp.
