myquitehead said:430W is more than enough for that card as long as its not a cheap brand. It also depends how many other devices you have plugged in.
Thanks, but I don't have it yet. I'm actually upgrading due to severe artifact problems with my ATI Radeon 9800 "vanilla". Does it run cool, have you had any problems with it?ebackhus said:I also have that type of 6800, we call it "Vanilla!" Anyway, I believe it requires a minimum 350w PSU. Of course, you'll want to attach a quality PSU to a quality card like that. Antec and Enermax are brands to look at if you want to upgrade. Next, what are the amperes of your PSU. They are indicated on the sticker on the side of the PSU. The +12v line is the most important in this case.
If you want to know how to make your card run better just let me know and I'll teach you how to do a soft-mod.
