will this power supply cut it?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
system has:

gtx 460
phenom 8650
1 hard drive
1 optical drive


power supply is 550W, 24A on the 12V rail.

asking because i got a 460 for the pc, and didnt think if i need a new power supply.

If I do need one, whats a cheap but capable unit? Doesnt need to be top of the line as this is a backup rig

everything is stock clocks btw

They recommend here to have 450 to 500 watts for an "average system". You should be good. If you start adding more equipment in there or overvolt/overclock you cpu and gpu you will be pushing it. You probably could do a little overclocking though.

24A on the +12v? That's closer to a 350w. I would get a new unit.

A good 400w like the Antec Neo ECO 400 would be fine.

What make and model is this PSU? Only 24A for +12V for a 550W unit (supposedly) does not sound decent.

24A on the +12V makes it a 300W-350W.

Get a good psu. If you're gonna overclock the vga or che cpu, keep in mind investing in something rated at 500w+. Many good things in the $60-70 range.
