I want to buy new video card but i'm concern that my PSU is not powerful enough. There is EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX(G92) at newegg
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814130339
The card required minimum 450W 24 Amp PSU. My PSU 500W has 2 12V rails 22Amp each.
Would I be safe to buy this card or should I go with something less power hungry like Radeon 4850 for the same prise?

I have a HD4850 on an EW500 and it has plenty of juice to spare. You will be perfectly fine.

I'm leaning towards 9800gtx but I have crossfire motherboard so probably I'll buy 4850 or squeeze last crumbs from my mastercard and for $25 more I can get 4870.
I hate being broke! :swearing:

Thanks everybody for your help.
