Hey folks,

I'm planning on purchasing an ATI X1900XT and I've read that a 450W PSU or greater is recommended. I'm currently using an Antec 430W TruePower 2.0 PSU and was wondering if that's adequate enough. Does anyone else have luck using a PSU below the recommendation? Thanks.

you should buy a PSU that has +30A on his 12V rails !!
i dont exactly the Brand , maybe some one else can :D

Check my sig... and I'm surviving.... at this stage.

You have a dual 12V rail PSU which can peak at 34A. Guess it's enough, but if you have a high end CPU, lots o RAM and lots of HDD, then you should get 450W and higher.

Thanks Vokofpolisiekar. It's definitely reassuring that you and I have the same PSU so hopefully it'll have enough juice for the X1900XT I'm going to invest in.[/quote]

30A !!!! think that should be 30mA thought i'll add that as the price of electric in the uk costs a fortune, and i dont want peps selling there beloved pc's thinking it cost a fortune to run .... just a fortune to buy and upgrade :)
