EVGA GeForce 7900GS KO 256MB

by gaston55 / August 19, 2007 2:54 AM PDT

Just bought this card from Tiger. According to EVGA's web site the minimum requirement for a power supply is 400 watts.
I am now reading the minimum requirements on the side of the box, and it says 450 watt power supply. So which is it?
I have a 400 watt in my PC.
Thank you

I know I can open the computer to find that out. But can I pull up that info through windows somewhere?
