Yeah it is wrong, it's called peak power bro (mine can do 630w for 60 seconds and thats the rosewill 530w) I like how all these amateurs think they know about computers.

So the 500w OCZ power supply isn't as amazing as yours? What do you want me to tell you? Making your 530 watt psu draw 630 watts probably isn't too good for it, and I doubt that the average computer builder worries that their 500 watt power supply won't supply 600 watts.

Since I'm getting a 4850 I assume I'll need a stronger PSU. So I decided on this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817709010

I know its cheap but its all I can afford right now.

If you guys can suggest one that costs no more than 30 dollars including shipping that would be awesome.


Read the reviews before you buy.

Pretty all of them say that this PSU blows. Buy another one.

Just saying, it proves that a power supply can only "draw 500w".

Well it wasn't completely off. Your system itself only uses what it needs. Efficiency comes into play at the wall to PSU. Efficiency isn't measured off of 100% load though, it goes down as load increases. The computer might physically only be gobbling 270w but you'll be drawing 300w from the wall, assuming 90% efficiency.

You can draw over the recommended amount, nothing is really stopping you from trying. PSU's are not created equally, your mileage may vary, maybe by a shitload in some cases. In case of serious shit going down (seriously overloaded) the PSU should trip and protect everything.
