Well, im building my own pc case to replace my old outdated xbox 360. My goal is to make a gaming pc with a case as small as xbox 1. Will a micro atx powerful enough to power on 8800gt, 9600gt, or ati 3850? If this 2 power supplys below cant handle it, what power supply is recommended? it needs to be small as possible. Current spec are:
Patriot 2gb 6400 Lat:4
AMD 4200 x2
no graphic card yet
350w is too low for those, its cutting it close, and brand name DOES say more than anything in the specifications. Also you will need PCIE connectors, which neither PSU have. Get this power supply and stop being cheap, people who are cheap with power supplies don't have working computers for long, sorry. Hope this helps, I am using the 750w version and its an amazing peice of hardware, get it, you can run it outside the case. Otherwise I will update this when, or if, i find a decent micro ATX PSU
well................................ the 8600GT gets all of its power from the PCIe but it is not a gaming card.
im not sure about the 9600GT with passive cooling
edit: oh yeah you are bogged down, no PCIe connectors? http://www.hardwarezone.com/news/view.php?id=10033&cid=... -from what i can see it still needs a 6-pin connector
