    Just wondering im looking at ubying a new graphics card and this looks fine :) I was just wondering I have a 500W PSU from coolermaster, the minimum for the GPU is 500W but would that still perform at full or would it be lowered. Im buying a new graphics card because mine is old and I dont really have money for a new PSU and GPU at the moment.

    Thanks Flyer.

    What brand of PSU do you have and how old is it? I'm sure one of the Tech's will advise on this; but I would think your going to be pushing it with just the minimum required.

    I havent bought the card as yet but im definitly sure that's whats keep my fps low in games (Graphics card).

    At the moment I have a 500W Coolermaster PSU which came standard with the Coolermaster Gladiator 600 Case. Its about 2 years old. I would replace it as well I just dont have money to at the moment.

    Running a Video crd that requires a 500W power supply when you only have a 500w power supply is going to be pushing the power supply to it's upper limits. You also have to figure in all the rest of the components that the power supply provides power to. I would recommend at least a 650W watt power supply from a better manufacturer than Coolermaster. Such as OCZ, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, or the like.
