Power Supply and Graphics card compatibility

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an Antec Basiq 500 watt power supply. The speces are as follows

30A on 5V
18A on 12V rail 1
18A on 12V rail 2
30A on 3.3V

I want to know if this is capable of running this card or a similar one. I realize that the graphics card draws power from the PCIE slot and the molex or whatever connector on the card itself. I just cant find any information on how the power load is split between the two different sources. For instance if the card requires 30A, i doubt it is an even split of 15A on the PCIE and 15A on the connector.

By the way, the specs of my system below are out of date!

Any help is appreciated!
