600 watt psu should be fine. Here are my card's specs: Graphics Engine ATi Radeon HD 4870 Bus Standard PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Memory GDDR5 512 MB Memory Bandwith 115.2 GB/s Engine Clock 800 MHz Memory Clock 1100 MHz RAMDAC 400MHz Memory Interface 256-bit CRT Max Resolution 2048 x 1536 DVI Max Resolution 2560 x 1600
I can end this. I have a 1gig hd4870 and stalkerrob [my brother] has the 1gig GTX 280 oc. his card barely out preform mine on almost any benchmarking tool we have tried. But in my opinion not by $300 worth. And he would totally agree that the hd4870 is a damn good card for the price. Even if he fires off a couple Nvidia talk bullets while he does it lol.
i have done a crysis benchmark on what i play it at. Destroyer gave me the idea to do it. here is a pic of results the first pic is of what he did his settings on except i don't have windowed mode checked.
yea i get it to. its not really an error. just its way of saying all the tests are run in 32bit. also is that benchmark tool a part of crysis or is it a dl some where. id like to see what mine does now and then later after i get my new psu.
