How much Power. Very Low end system - Page 2

post #11 of 14
a quality 350-400 should be just fine

4890 is a powerhouse of a card for what you can get it for these days, great for dx9/10 games. Also it will most assuredly draw more power then the rest of the components combined. It is a dual six pin connector so make sure the psu you get will support it

Antec EW 380 will be enough. 32 amps on 12v rails if im not mistaken. I just got one for GF build running 8800GTS and Phenom X3 8650. Also your rig is plenty powerful enough for those games. HD 4890 is still a beast of a card.

That PSU will only have one six pin PCI Ex connector though, will have to use the adapter with the molex to 6 pin for it to work.

To be safe I would get something like this:

Or better yet this, and be future proof.

It did not work as well as I thought it would so I had to strip out the 4890. It was causing everything to over heat & the PC would freeze. I felt the hard drive at one point and it was so hot I could only put my hand on it for a few seconds. Now that I took out the 4890 I have no issues.

Im going to try & grab a 5770 since it will work fine for him. the 380 just did not cut it on the 4890
