Quick question about new video card

By paul05

  1. My cpu power supply has 435mhz(brand is "just PC"), now that I'm planning to buy 7800 GT 256mb that require me to have 445MHz. so if I put this video card into my motherboard, is it going to run badly?

    thanks

    yes he obviously means watts, and the answer to the question is no it shouldn't, its the recommended power, it also depends on the power supply you currenly have. It will not hurt to try it. If you find that your video is randomly droping than you might think about getting a more powerful power supply, there not expensive, and is probaly the best way to go.
