can my Tagan Easycon 430W (20a per 12v rail & 26a combined) handle one of the 320mb 8800GTS's?
also my PSU has a switch on the back for combined & splitted, when would i use this & what scenarios (hardware) are applicable?
thanks

Your cutting it close - depending on DVD burners, soundscards, and other wattage sucking extras. Depends on the brand of 88GTS 320 also- for example BFG calls upon 425 watts and 28 amps while EVGA prefers 400 watts and 26a. Either way, it's always good to have a few amps of headroom; wattage headroom for a hardware loaded system.

That supply only has max output of 21A where as my Tagan has 26A but "mpilchfamily" doesn't recommend it under 30A for an 8800GTS 320mb
