Is my PSU enough?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
to handle an x1900xt? It's the 500W Xconnect (no lightning in it, just the titanium one)...my system isn't totally tricked out, in fact it's running behind the times. The 5V rail of this is 30A which is the recommended amperage assuming a fully loaded system and the 12V rail is 34A. Does this seem to be enough with my system specs? AND just wondering when it says that your PSU needs a 6 pin PCI-E connector, can this just be a 4 pin molex dongle to the 6 pin PCI-E adaptor? Or does there have to be an actual pci-e connector built into the psu? Thanks.

On paper, it meets the specs, but the X-Connect often doesn't deliver to its full rating. I'd suggest another psu if you're spending this sort of cash on a GFX card. Sunbeam Nuuo 550W should be fine or an OCZ Powerstream 520W or Seasonic 500W/600W.
