yea i just shouldnt try it u guys are right like really not even worth it and on a 17inch monitor at 1280x1024 completely retartd overkill and bottleneck so
although 4850 im sure it can handle , was lookn at wattage charts 4870 sucks power were as 4850 about 50wats lower underload which i think would be fine so either
herm. idk about the GTS 250's anymore though
but just for the sake of it maybe this
GTS i wont overclock since itll void BFG warranty but the 4850 will be overclocked to about same specs as the 250 so 250 mite just be the one 2 buy
and for any card being 1g or 512 just a 17inchmonitor so either work fine
it's not the total watts, it's the brand, Rosewill's are pretty much a crap shoot as far as PSUs go, you could buy a 450w and in reality be using a PSU that can only handle 350w, Rosewill uses some different OEM manufacturers so google your unit and see who the OEM manufacturer is, they (Rosewill) sell some decent PSUs and they also sell some complete garbage PSUs depending on the OEM manufacturer, a 450w Antec, Corsair, or another more reputable brand would be better...
also, the wattage requirements listed by the different companies can vary on exactly identical cards depending on that that specific company thinks is a safe requirement, they're all basically the same with not much power consumption differences between them...
