18A@12V enough for OC'd 8800GTS 512? - Page 2

That PSU is indeed awesome for the price. I'd snatch it up while I can.

Those things are solid.

Oh, here's another option in the low $100 range to suppliment Choz-the-noz's suggestions.

Tagan makes this 700W, that has both a 6rail and 1rail mode (I just run one rail). It comes ready with a 2x6pin/2x6+2pin set up. I've the 800W version and it's really quiet. Quieter than my OCZ GXE 700W was. Plus, it comes with a free Intel 2gb memory stick. Really not a bad deal.

Not true, I ran 2 hard drives, 1 DVD drive, 1 8800GTX and A e6600 and a asus P5K vanilla , 2gbs ram with a 150 watt psu and 300watts peak power.

And it ran fine for 3 months and the psu still works but finally got around to changing it over, I even played a few games in vista without lag

SO it'll run but I don't know how good lol


The psu had very many converters and addons to it for more wires hahahahahah

My friend ran a Q6600 and 8800GTS 640MB on a 430watt PSU with no problems.

My PSU only has 18A on a 12v rail and it powers my system fine...but then again I think it has four 12v rails...

People... note that there is a difference between PSUs. 18A = 216W on the 12V rail.

Jacko87: yours has four 12V rails... that's a totally different situation. As far I know, your PSU puts out more than 40A combines on those 12V rails. More than plenty for your rig.

Deezle98: There are 430W PSUs that push 30A on the 12V rails... that's much more than the 18A the OP mentioned. Again, a totally different situation. Wattage doesn't really mean a thing.

Xx573v3xX_Z28: here I need some proof. Which 150W PSU did you use? Link me to that PSU please, since 150W won't allow you to play games at all. YEs, it'll likely boot, but the moment you put *any* load on that PSU, it'll fail.

These PSUs are all very very good.

The VX 550W boasts a single 12V rail of 41A, which is more than plenty. For $70 (shipped!), it's a steal.

The 620W modular is just plain awesome. 50A on what is marketed/specified as triple 12V rails, but technically and electronically is actually a single 12V rail. That will allow you to go SLI even with power to spare. And modular to top it of. For $115? Unbelievable.
defidentaly agree with this guy,i got a corsiar tx650,thats 50A@+12 shipped for about 100 bucks,but that was on a one day sale.

good luck.

corsiar is the way to go

150w psu is impossible.
250w can be done:
