    On the following systems.

    AMD P2 QUAD 925
    4GB RAM
    1 X HDD (320GB)

    AMD P2 X2
    4GB RAM
    1 X HDD (320GB)

    I was thinking 4890/4870/GTX 260/275/280

    Am i wrong?

    Would happily run a 5870 on either of those.

    5870 is probably the max it could support, unless the PSU is powering both systems at once?

    Clearly he is looking for a 2nd computer and wants help to choose which Video card to take.... I hope.

    OCZ 500w is a quality bit of kit.....

    It will take anything upto a GTX470.

    People are WAY too conservative when it comes to PSU requirements and Gfx cards....

    I assumed my Corsair HX520 would handle my 4870X2, but I got hardlocks until I bought a new PSU.

    Well thats not surprising really is it.....a 4870x2 uses 150w more power than a 470 at max load.....

    2 yrs later, its just about the most power hungry card out there...
