guys i really need your help !!

i upgrade to a 4830 on the 25th july. i did 3 stress tests on it fallout 3, farcry 2 and cod4

all on max / very high

i have a 350w psu that came with my gigabyte case . 6ghz amd and 2 hdds connected.

nobody has bothered to help me as im really clueless about psu :(

i can get a 450w or 500w but i dont know if its going to make the diffrence? becuase the card would have restarted my pc or it would have frozen under stress.

ANY suggestions will be welcome !!!

:cry:
 
EDIT: ^+1 Dint referesh before posting...

Actually a good quality 350W can power 4830 but if it has came with your case, then most probably it would be a low quality one...

Get PSUs from any of these brands -
Corsair, Antec EA series, Seasonic, Silverstone, PCP&S, OCZ...
A 400W+ PSU from any of the above manufacturers with atleast 1 6Pin Connector can power your PC...
Specific models - Antec EA380/ Antec EA430/ Corsair 400CX/ Corsair 450VX/ OCZ Mod 400W...

And is it a typo - 6GHz AMD ???

Antec is very reliable , ill check out the corsair and antec as those are reliable ! ill get it ASAP ! no i don't overclock at all :)

i checked dxdiag now and its a AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core 6000+ to be exact

it only give me the voltage input and output levels on the sticker . and warranty void sticker . so im guessing its a normal gigabyte 350w
