K320 power supply

2010-03-04, 22:10 PM

IF I was, to replace the 280 watt power supply to around 500 watts does anyone have any suggestions as to which make or model would work.

Thanks, Ben

Good question!  I'm guessing this is a followup to your question in another topic about adding a video card to a K320 3019-1AU.  Many video cards recommend 400W or more.

 

I'm really liking the looks of the K320 ICU, which has the I7 chip and an ATI Radeon HD4650.  The AMD website says that the HD4650 only draws 75W at full power, but recommends a system power supply of 400W or more.  The K320 series only has a 280W power supply.

 

Does anyone think this is a problem, or is ATI just being conservative when recommending 400W?
