on the bfg gtx 260 box it says the 12v needs to be 38a, but the PSU i have is 30a and has 2 6 pin.

just wondering if its enough, cause i keep getting jagged shadows in most of my games

or maybe its software related?

360W on the 12V rail on a PSU like that?

It'd power it, but I'd get a new PSU. Ultra power supplies are pretty garbage with the exception of the X3 series and some of the X4 series.

Upgrade, and with discounts and rebates, you can't go wrong....

The jagged shadows have to do with detail settings and AA, not power, irregardless that you don't have enough power.

That has a +12V rail like you'd find on a 400W unit.

It's "enough", but it's a low-end Yue-Lin unit (I do believe) stuffed full of low-end Chinese capacitors just waiting to blow and fill your rig's power cables with ripple and noise. Replace it anyway.

Well the jagged shadows would be alising. I would upgrade though because Ultra is known for being a shotty brand (excluding the X3's)

Heres some worth looking at.
