A few people on these forums ask for advice about new graphics cards and whether or not their PSU will support them. I was thinking that if we all 'chipped in' (pun not intended) then we could make a rough guide as to which GPUs use the most power and in what order.
I've only owned 2 PCIe cards, a Radeon x700 and a GeForce 6800GS.I suggest we start off the list as such:
If people want they can add to this list, I think it would save a lot of other threads - perhaps some of the regular posters here might be able to help us out. Of course I'm perfectly aware that not all cards with the same GPU use the same amount of power, so perhaps it would be wise to stick to reference design cards?
Thanks for all of your help guys, very much appreciated. Apologies for starting a thread which has all been addressed. Can anyone lock this thread please? I'm no more of a fan of tautology than anyone else. Ta.
