Dual 12v+ Rail PSU + GTX 570?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can I use this PSU to power this card?

The dual 12v+ rails has me questioning everything. Would this be pushing it? Thanks in advance.

Edit: I ask this because the card claims to need 38a on the 12v+ rail, and I have two with 22a each. I understand that the amps don't combine and whatnot, but I can't figure out exactly how much power the card will actually require.

Do not

Matter.



What does matter is that your PSU is a piece of garbage that realistically do about 350-400W. Raidmax have a little habit of "exaggerating". Just a little.

Haha, fair enough. Guess I'll have to upgrade that soon. Thanks.

Yeah definitely do not go with Raidmax psu's especially if you are planning on gaming. You are going to have to spend a bit more money for a better psu. Check out Corsair or Seasonic.

Was looking at this. Would that work?

Yep, but the TX650 is a little bit antiquated/obsolete because now we have PSUs like the 650W Antec TruePower New:

So, it's not just about the brand name but specific units.

You're welcome!

Plus, this PSU (and other quality 650W power supplies) will be able to power your system with two 5850s in it.
