I need a PSU to power a GTX 260 (216) for under $68

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I need a power supply from newegg.ca that will support a GTX 260. The only problem is that I need it for under $68 CAD. $69.99 is over budget! I just don't know what to choose. The only things coming close to the amps I need on the 12V rail are Rosewills but I don't really think those are "reliable". Help please.

Here, this should work.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817151074
It has 17amps per rail, 34 amps in total on the 12 volt. Plus its from seasonic so its a guaranteed solid 430 watts coming out of it.

The Antec NeoECO 400C is basically the same thing, but a lot cheaper.

Not many people praise ultra, but their power supplies arent all that bad...and I've had 2 of them. http://www.compusa.com/applications/...6573&CatId=106

That should do it. I have a 750watt from Ultra with 45 amps on one 12v rail

I think that the gtx 260 needs two 6-pin but the antec has only one 6-pin, that's why i suggested the seasonic.
But thanks for the info

Are you guys sure 34A is enough for the GTX 260? Nvidia also says minimum 500W power supply on their spec page. And yes, it needs 2 six pin.

Antec Neo ECO 520C

It's a Seasonic 520W, basically the best you can possibly get for that price.
It's also exactly $68.

Yes they are that bad. This is the type of quality Ultra puts out:
