Power supply amps for GTX 770

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question as I always stress about these little things: I have just bought a new EVGA 770 SC and it recommends 41 amps on the 12v rail, this is where my PSU makes things confusing. It shows this...

And I'm not sure how this works, Currently I'm running a 560ti and haven't had any noticeable problems but I'm just wanting to double check if this will be fine with my 770. I'm going to be upgrading my PSU soon but need to run it on my current one atm.

Any help would be appreciated thanks

41 amps recommended is for the whole pc. A typical 770w will use around 230w:

230w / 12v = 19.16 amps

Thanks mate, just did a bit of research as well to realize this. To be on the save side ill just have to use plug the 6 and 8 pins into separate rails until i get a new PSU
