I'm looking at picking up the sapphire x1950 with the two power connectors. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Thats what I currently have, i thought it was a single rail when I bought it but i ts a dual with 18a and 16a on the 12's. 500w total. If not i might break down and buy this one http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... looking for some feedback More about : current psu handle x1950 pro agp miahallen March 14, 2007 3:57:58 PM What's the rest of your system consist of?

WhiskeyRuss March 14, 2007 4:18:33 PM Oh man you made my day Was just a little worried since every review i read is like "omg insane power etc etc" Hopefully it will come down in price a little also if those new agp Ati's come out later this month.

Should be fine...best of luck :wink: TSIMonster March 14, 2007 5:11:19 PM Just FYI, my PCI-E x1950Pro is running on an FSP 450watt just fine. You have enough on your 12 volt rails, so you will probably be okay. Apevia is known for crappy PSUs, so check your rails for stability Can't find your answer ? Ask !
