    Enough power for a rad 9800 pro?

    Enough power for a rad 9800 pro?

    Just wondering before i save up anymore for my rad 9800 pro if my psu will be able to cope with it and my hardware.

    Barton 2500+ @ 3000+ (default volts)
    Asus A7N8X Deluxe
    Twinmoss pc3200 2x256 (200fsb default volts)
    52x24x52 Aopen cd-rw
    48x dvd rom
    5 case fans
    450W CWT + SATA Quiet Dual Fan

    Hoping it should give a rad 9800 pro enough power, because i can't afford to replace it and it will have to do for now.

    450W sounds more than enough to power that lot

    If it was a Qtec people would say no. but with a good brand you could run it with 350watt (as ^)

    450watt CWT it easily enough
