Brand New 5830 bad? - Page 4

I'm telling you, that PSU is likely the cause of your problem. I had a few of those units. Great bang for the buck 5 years ago. Again, I'm honestly surprised that your 8800's work on it at all. But the 5830 does draw more power at startup than your 8800's do.

EDIT:
The TP3 550w only had 500w PEAK POWER on the 12v rail to begin with. Not continuous...but PEAK. And that was 5 years ago.
I think you are right about this... I put a single 8800gts in. Booted up fine. I removed the Nvidia drivers. Put the 5830 in. At first when I hit the power button..nothing. Hit it again 2 seconds later it powered on with the card fan spinning full power, but the monitor continues to stay in standby.. It may be my PSU.

Damn! Well this give me an excuse for the wife to head to micro center tomorrow. I am thinking a 700W PS. What are good low price range models? I heard Corsair is good but expensive.

You'll be just fine with an Antec Neo ECO 400 or a Corsair CX430 honestly. If you REALLY want to go overkill, the TruePower New series are amazing. I honestly am not a huge fan of Corsair units (they're over recommended IMO), but most Corsair units are great too. Anything that has Seasonic guts will be a solid choice.

You can also take a look here. That thread is kept up to date with the best PSU's on the market. Anything on that list is a solid unit, and you're probably going to want a 400w unit for a single card, or a 600w unit for crossfire'd 5830's.

Think about this too. If you do pick up a solid unit at MC tomorrow, bring it home, and your rig still doesn't power on with the 5830, that means that the card likely is bad. You could either keep the new unit (lets face it, that TP3 is old anyway ), or return it. Plus it would tell you for sure what piece of hardware isn't working right.

EDIT:
Didn't mean to double post.

Never thought I would have to DOWNGRADE to power my card. You sure a 400W PS will be enough with all my fans etc? Seeing as I have a 550 now....

Can you recommend me a power supply from this page:

http://www.microcenter.com/search/se...rt=NewProduct&

The true power new 750 is on sale for 109. With one left.. Is that a good deal?

Get the best psu u can afford. don't skimp.

With the video card market moving to two 6 or 8 pin power requiremenst, try to future proof with a psu with 4 6+2 pin cables.

This, http://www.microcenter.com/search/co...dde92c2c7c56ed

newegg for $120 plus 6 shipping. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139012

U gotta smart phone, have that page on your phone and show the microcenter sales dude, they quite often match newegg on sale prices. I bought this rig from MC using a wishlist from newegg for price matching.



The Professional HX650W 650W looks sweet, I may drive into Yonkers and grab this one myself.

I go to Micro Center regularly that would be awesome if they price matched newegg. I have never tried it. I have a droid phone. I will see if they will price match the corsair 650w tomorrow. Do you price match a sales rep or the cashier? The sales reps get on my nerves, lol.

best bet is to log into newegg, create a wish list and print it.

Show it to a sales rep, be firm. Take out your wallet when you asking him, your ready to buy. He will price match.
