Solved Can my PSU handle the Graphic Card Tags: Graphics Graphics Cards Power Supplies Last response: March 6, 2014 4:27 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ggattinger March 6, 2014 4:45:39 AM Hi, I know that will sound annoying for you guys because it probably have already been answered several times, but i'd like to know if my PSU can handle the Graphics Card I'm planning to get. Graphic Card: http://br.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=04G-P4-3767... PSU: http://www.coolermaster.com/powersupply/office-home-ext... I know it's a bit risky, because IF the PSU can handle it, it'll work almost at it's limits. But my doubt is about the +12V rails, on EVGA's website we can see that they recommend a PSU with a minimum 30Amps on the +12V rail. But my power supply, provides a 20Amps on the +12V rail, but for this case we have 2 +12V rails. My principal question is, can my PSU handle this graphic card, or it's better for me to buy a new one with a single +12V rail. I've already read several explanations about this matter, but yet it is not clear for me. Thanks for any help in advance! Sorry for any spelling mistakes.
