Power supply for new card/old system - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
oh...codegen 400w.
That means i need a new one right?
Since the card requires 450w
I also read alot of stuff in 5 seconds about it and people say that a normal 450-500W psu should do fine...question is...how much does my mobo support ><

your mobo will support like a 1000w psu if you wanted it in your system(there is no limit aslong as you have the right connections)

i would reccommend a 550w-650w psu

it the ammount of amps on the 12v psu rails that matter
i reccommended a 550-650 jo the psu is not running at 100%
most of the psu have those connectors already . just double check or find one you like and post the link. almost for sure you will have some one double check to make sure you have the correct inputs you need if you are not sure of what to look for.

there is 36amps on the 12v rail combined
and there is 2 6 pin pci-e pluggs aswell

it looks good i my self never heard of the company may be some one else can give you some back ground info on their products
the only thing i think you should get between a 550-650 that is a 500

Well, il probably buy it. Comments say that its bit overrated but decent on normal rigs. Not recommended for overclocking. Im not really going to overclock anything so yeh...im probably gonna get this.

not saying it will happen but if/when you get the new card if your computer freezes/crashes its probable the psu not being able to handle the load. remmember you have a slight oc on the comp which uses more power.

with a bigger psu allow room for groth in you compyter for new parts with out have to replace the psu again ( just my thoughts)

good luck and dont for get to post your 3d06 marks for us

thanks noobdown
