Power Supply Not Good Enough..

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I think my psu sucks and can barely handle my 7600gs's in sli. And is it bad to have 18amps on a 12 volt rail?? heheh.. i know im pushing this too far..
.. please tell me whats good and bad and minimum for some cards! im lost..

Jesus man, 18 Amps isnt going to cut it... the recommended amps for my 7900GS and System all together is 22Amps but I got an old PSU running my HD's ,Cd drives.

18 amps for 7600 sli's will make your comp unstable and probably will shorten the life of your PSU and can endanger the rest of your computer.

Try using the 7600 alone to see any difference.. but try purchasing a new PSU.. because it wont run long with those cards.

Better yet.. if you want to see the life of that PSU in the next few weeks.. I suggest you install a low-end GFX card in the PCI slot.. haha

Well pay more attition to the rails than the bran i would thingk.
If you get one with one rail get one with high amp like what 30a.
If you get one with multi rails get one with say 18 to 20 a on all 12v rails
My first bit of advice on here soo...if i am wrong please let me know
