What is the wattage requirement for XFX 7870?
I have Intel 3570 2 hard drives and a dvd drive, don't plan to do xfire or add any more components
Is 500W PSU good enough for this something like
Looks like an old model ?(34 amp on 12v rail =(not near 500w).
Newer models have 40 amp..
The 500W bronze model is better option(better built).
Edit: That part no. is the same as newer model(maybe a typo), confirm with ncix if is 40 amp model.
New edit: Bit more searching, find 34 amp is 430W model. So check with seller.
