branch off from this thread http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/1021...ave-power.html

hey im looking into getting a EVGA 580 SC and am just wondering if my current PSU can handle it?

acorrding to EVGA the Minimum recommended power supply should be +12 Volt current rating of 42 Amps and my PSU is +12V with 41 Amps so unless im OCing it i should be fine right???


all info from
http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...015-P3-1582-AR
http://www.corsair.com/power-supplie...-1/vx550w.html

just wondering cause i dont want a nice new card that i cant run


NOTE: *** According to the other thread i should be good but someone posted good advice that i ask the PSU section***

Thanks everyone

*sigh*, LOL. Alright, since you want a definitive answer.

363W at the wall with a Core i7 965 at stock speeds running 3DMark06. You'll be fine. Don't worry.

42amps for a single GPU is ludicrous. Unless you overclock your 580 to like a billion MHz it's not going to draw that much power.

Anyway, the vx550 is a high quality (slightly older) unit, it will run that fine. The whole system will draw less from the wall than the PSU is rated to deliver to the system, so even with psu aging it should be just fine, even overclocked. Enjoy!

Please note the 42 amps would be for the whole system, not the GPU alone. However, OP, you will need to be mindful of speeds and voltages on that power supply. If you budget permits, I'd grab a (quality) 750W PSU as well. Or first and get a GPU later, for that matter.
