8800 GTS 320 PSU question - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Warweo, of course I could get the new PSU here, would it be the CX430 or any other, but that wouldn't the funny project anymore.
I'm trying to build the PC for dirt-cheap and using as many parts that I have lying around as possible. smile.gif

The PSU says
+12v1 10A | +12v2 14A

Can I just combine the two 12v rails and count it as a 24A rail?

No you can't. You have to verify the total output of the two lines. Let's say 300W on the 12V lines so you would have to divide 300 by 12 and you get 25amps. Anyway, it won't run on your power supply.

I think you should save up for a much newer card rather than a 8800 GTS, lol. I mean if you really want to then go for it but you will be limited. Anyway, this is a good PSU calculator I've used in the past.

No, that PSU won't run that card. You need a more powerful one. And no, you cannot just combine the rails, PSU's don't work that way.

I bought a 8800GTX With AXP for $30 not to long ago. I would not get it if i where you. Its a old card and the PSU requirements are high.

OK I still decided to buy the 8800 GTS. I just converted and it cost me 25$. I will try to get a good cheap PSU as well.

A Corsair CX430 will work perfectly. Keep in mind, you should be able to get an 8800GT used for that price too, or maybe an HD4830 or HD4850. Those older cards are dirt cheap, and they'd be a LOT better than that 8800 320.

I've been checking the prices in the used hardware market for a couple of weeks now and the 8800GTs go for around 35-40€, 4870s for around 60€. Haven't seen any 4830s or 4850s around.

I put the 320 in my sig rig and I was able to play TF2 at high settings (1920x1200) and the FPS never dropped to near 60. The lowest I got was 67. I think the card will serve its purpose excellently. biggrin.gif

I won't probably get a quality Corsair PSU for a suitable price over here, but I will have to keep my eyes open for offers.
