Default Re: Good graphics card for 130 and under?

i'd think ur bfg 550 would be fine,
everything in my sig is running off my 550 Rosewill psu.

as long as u got enough plugs for power u should be good.
i dont think HDD's that much power?

The BFG 550W PSU will be perfect for that system. They are very reliable and provide plenty of power and amps on their multiple 12V rails.

With the stock HSF I had like 48, with the zalman I get from anywhere from 35-38 idle, I am using MX-2 thermal paste.


Edit:::

this is the exact PSU I have
