GTX 295 on a VX450 - Page 3

post #21 of 28
No it will not run the GTX295 powerwise and power connectors are not a problem if he uses some adapters from 4pin molex to PCI-E 6pins and 8pins.

The max for the 450VX is not 450w but it will not run the GTX295 howerever it will run a HD4870 or a GTX260 maybe GTX280.

Numbers say different, so I would like to hear some personal experience with pairing a VX450W with GTX295. Did you have problems, or saw somebody with same setup?

Also, VX450W can run C2D with two HD4870 in CF. Similar wattage vs. GTX295.

GTX295 is 289w. Being able to run and run smoothly are two different things. 450vx is a solid psu and can do 500w but GTX295 is a $500+ item. Should consider getting an adequate psu to handle it.

I understand what you are saying but there is more to consider than wattage.
Amperage (amps) on the 12v rails have to be followed also. That is how psu's are rated and where gpu's and cpu's get their wattage from.

There are some 500w psu's that have less amps than my old Dell 305w psu which had 22amps and could run an 8800GT.

Dell 305w @ 22amps


This is a good 500w Earthwatts @ 34amps

Amp rating for a psu = Maximum combined wattage on the combined 12v rails divided by 12 = amp rating for psu
the only problem w/ that, is that overall, the 500 watt one there actually has more available amperage on the 12v rail then the dell one.

I agree. If you buy $500 VGA, you should also have extra $100 to buy "proper" PSU with larger margin, to avoid possible problems.

But, I also believe that VX450W is able to power such graphics card. People usually underestimate such PSUs, like VX450W or Silverstone Element 500W.

Oh really? So I should be able to SLi my GTS G92 with no problem then?

As long it's not paired with heavily overclocked quad, yes. Each G92GTS card consumes 100-110W at load.

VX450W will do it with ease.
