    I have a geforce FX5700 LE 128 MB, and have been looking at an upgrade. I saw this card, ATI AIW X800 XT for only $299 (CDN) and I really want it, but My PSU is so pathetic. I bought the computer at future shop last may, It's from HP. Anyways, this graphics card saus it requires a 300 watt power supply, and when I bought my PC, I didn't think to look at that. Well, if someone can tell whether or the card would run on a 250 watt PSU, please tell me.

    you might be able to, I've run a

    P4 2.4Ghz
    5 USB Powered Devices
    2 Optical Drives (DVD Burner, DVD Reader)
    2 HDDs (80GB, 250GB)
    nVidia 6800NU
    a TV Tuner Card
    3.5" Floppy Drive

    in a 265W PSU....I was really lucky, it didnt die on me.

    of course, once i realized the wattage of my crap PSU, i immediately went out and bought a 450W Coolermaster PSU.

    Why don't you just buy a PSU to go with the card then you don't have to worry about it...

    Seriously doubt it. Get a new PS like someone suggested. I've seen some good ones for $40-50 bucks that should power it ok.

    There you go. $30 after a $10 rebate. Hard to beat that for a 420W. Name brand as well.
