Graphic Cards and Rails with a GTX 780

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the power supply Antec TruePower 650W http://store.antec.com/Product/power_supply-true_power/tp-650/0-761345-23652-2.aspx

It say..

2 x 6 pin and 2 x 8 (6+2) pin PCI-E graphics card connectors for TP-650, TP-750 and TP-750 Blue

I want to powerup a EVGA GTX 780 SC.. it take 42A total.

However it seem a single rail only support 25A does that mean i have to use 2 rail on that single card ? one using a 6 pin and the other using 8 pin ?

Thanks!

That 42A (502 watts) amount is a recommendation for the total system power consumption, not the card by itself. You have nothing to worry about with the card and PSU as the GTX 780 is a 250 watt card.
