Can my current PSU hold my current PC fine?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It's an LC Power Taurus 560W. Here are it's specs for those who don't know it:

Efficiency: 79%

3,3V: 30A
5V: 28A
12V1: 15A
12V2: 14A

And if the answer is yes, if I wanted to change my current 8800GT to for example an 9800GX2 would it be fine?

What's the combined maximum current on the +12V1 and +12V2? Those current rating look very very low for a "560w" PSU. I highly doubt that PSU could handle a 9800GX2.


What is the UL number? If it is E193705, then CWT makes it and they are generally good. If it is E181356, then Shenzhen Chi Yuan makes it and not so good.

I recommend at least 650watts for the 9800GX2

Uh... I don't know... The best I can do is to tell you to check these 2 pages to see if the information you're looking for is in there...

Both are no good... I need a picture of the label. Look for this symbol and there's a number below it. Also, note that they may not sell them in the US so may not have a UL number.

Pretty low for a 560W PSU. Maybe make the cut barely.

Maybe? So you don't know for sure? I just want it to be able to hold my PC as it is now... At least that. By the way I bought this PC around 20/12/07, I don't know if that counts to the running time of the PSU...
