    Hello,

    I currently own a low end system about 1 year old:

    its a low end asus mobo.
    an Intel E6420 2.1ghz processor
    8500GT 1gig graphics card
    2 Gig memory

    the PSU is a FSP Fortron/Source ATX-400PN 400W ATX 2.01

    I'm hoping you peeps can tell me if the PSU will be able to handle a 4850 ICEQ4

    If not I will probably put in a standard 9600GT unless you peeps have better idea's


    tnx in advance

    i think so. but it is a low quality PSU. the psu is the most vital part of your syste, they often die if they are bad quality, and with them often mobo or gpu die too. before getting a new vid card, i'd suggest you to change the psu to a better one. a corsair tx450 would be a good idea
