RP550 to handle an X1950XT or 8800GTS?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Rosewill stallion 450w PSU with 16 and 14 amps on the rails but I wan't to upgrade my video card to an X1950XT soon and then maybe a few months later an 8800GTS 320 even.

I've read about the RP550 being an awesome PSU for the money and since i can't spend too much it was either this or the Xclio goodpower. The Rosewill has more amps and 50 more watts though so I think I will go with it.

That's it right there. I believe it will handle both of those cards no problem in my system but just making sure here. A lot of people say my 450w will handle an X1950XT but I want to be sure.

That PSU will handle the X1950xt just fine.

Thanks, what about an 8800GTS 320? If I remember right the wattage on it is only a little more than the X1950XT and I think I will have enough to run that too.
