    Hi all,

    I am putting together a new system here's what I got:

    Pentium D845PESV board w/ P4 2.4b (onboard sound and LAN)
    512M 333Mhz DDR Ram
    120Gig Maxtor ultra ata 133 HDD
    P4 300W power supply

    I want a descent graphics card, and a saw a PNY Verto GeForce 4 Ti 46200 64M for a good price ($99) on sale at CompUsa.

    The problem is that along with other requirements it lists a 350 watt power supply.

    Does anyone know if it will work with a 300Watt?

    Thanks

    I recommend looking at different video cards or upgrading to a 350-400watt power supply.

    It might run certain programs on 300W, but it'll probally end-up shutting down your PC, or just not work at all.

    thanks for the reply,

    I just had someone else tell me that the card will run fine with a 300W power supply - he said if it seems to be shakey I can always upgrade the power supply later.

    It does use the same chip that other brands of cards don't have a minimum requirement for power supplies.

    I still don't know, any 3rd or 4th opinions :)

    Just in case anyone else was wondering a similar issue,

    I contacted tech support at PNY, and recieved an email reply that said the card would function properly with a 300W power supply,
    however they recommend 350W and if I run into stability problems I should upgrade to a 350W power supply.
