8800gtx Power Requirements Tags: Nvidia Power Supplies Power Graphics Last response: March 7, 2007 8:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share redtshirt March 7, 2007 5:22:35 PM I want to get an 8800 on newegg, but my problem is that it says that you need: Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 28 Amps.) Does this mean any ATX 12V PSU with over 450 watts will work? Or do I need to look if it also has 28 amps (which I don't know what it is, or how to look for it.)
