SMPS for Sapphire HD4850
  

I Just bought a Sapphire HD4850 from newegg for $100 .

The problem is that i have a 1.5 year old cheap (Rs.500) 450W PSU.
I also have a voltage stabilizer attached to my CPU.

My question is should I buy a new PSU for the HD 4850.
If I do then can I buy a cheap PSU just for the card since i already have a separate stabilizer.

Config: Intel E7200, Gigabyte 630i (GA 73PVM-S2H)

Get a better PSU like Cooler Master 600W or 500W. Make sure that it will fit in your cabinet. Your 450W will not be able to run HD4850 properly.

Re: SMPS for Sapphire HD4850

Is it necessary for me to go for brand like Cooler Master.
Can I buy a cheap PSU since i already have a voltage stabilizer that i can attach it with.


What advantage would a cooler master PSU have over a normal 600W PSU with voltage stabilizer attached to it.

I don't to spend too much on the PSU.

i too have a "unknown" PSU and a stabliser . but i would suggest u to go for a good PSU i dont think that anything will get spoilt if ur PSU is under load but i feel dat ur comp might restart on a daily basis so get used to it but to be on a safer side go for a good PSU like coolmaster or corsair.
