The PSU that came with it is 350 watts and built for the sff shuttle. Even though the thing performed surprisingly well with the preloaded COD2 and Wolfenstein I wana throw another card in there.
Any ideas as to what PSU may do the trick? I picked this up to use primarily for doing app dev and graphics for work, but there is nothing wrong with a little late night gaming party in the office. ;o)
Both run fine... Had some issues with PSU on first build with 7800GTX in that it failed to post after a couple of days - 7800GTX is kinda power hungry. RMA from Newegg and new box fine.
Temps are warm - CPU to 50C, GPU 80-85C under max for X2/7800GTX under load but this is with ambient temp of 33+C and smartfan only - Fans don't even scale up at these temps. At 20C never went above 44C/75C.
I went through this with the Tech Dev at EVGA - I was going to swap out my 7800GTX for a 7950 through there three month Pay the difference upgrade programme.
I was assured that the 7950 would not fit. I would be interested if you were able to get the 7900GTX to go.
I was concerned about the power. I think I must be close to max with the 7800GTX - The first PSU couldn't cope. I have no idea how they get two 7800GTX in SLI off a 350W PSU in the SN26P but I guess it must be possible!
I am running into a problem with my g/f's mom's xpc. It only has a 240 watt and according to shuttle's website the particular model she has you can not upgrade the power supply with the 350 watt they offer. :x I am wanting to upgrade it so I can get a little more playable framerates with it in FFXI online than I currently get with it with the 5200fx that is in it. Funny thing is on shuttle's website and the vga support list it supposedly can handle a 9800 series ati or a nvidia 6800gt. Really do not see how that is possible with the power supply that is in it. Are they on crack or will it actually work????
oh, that support list. omg, listen to it. my friends shuttle wouldnt boot because his card wasnt supported
