hey guys so i have my pc since 2008 with the following parts:
Enermax Tomahawk 450w
C2D E8400 3.0ghz
3GB DDR2 800mhz
now my friend is buying a new pc and hes giving me his Sapphire Radeon HD6870, now the question is can the card work with my PSU?
i believe its a pretty good quality PSU but i wanna make sure
ive attached the label on the PSU:
According to this site the load of the graphic card is 250w at max.
So when we convert that into amps
250/12=10.8 amps on 12v
So yes it will be more than enough to power that graphic card as on your psu ur 1st rail has 17amp and the 2nd rail has 16 amp.
Hope this helped you out.
