    Anyone here running an ATI HD4850 on a 380Watt Antec earthwatts powersupply?

    i am trying to help someone through an upgrade, but they just dont have anything extra to put into buying a bigger PSU... the Antec Earthwatts is quite a solid PSU so even though its wattage is low, it should hopefully be enough to push this card.

    his system in not overclocked:

    AMD 3600X2, 2GB ram, 1 HDD, DVD R/W & soon to be ATI HD4850

    You may be able to squeeze by on that, the minimum ATI says is needed is 450, but considering you're not overclocking or running too many things, could work.
