  1. It would be cutting it close. I would just put that $70 it costs towards a better power supply.
  2. You have to remember it will be just powering my video card so the full 400 watts in avail, the recommend a 550 watt ps for your whole system.

    Problem is nobody but futureshop in my city carries ps and a rocketfish 700 does not look like it can cut it, it has 4 rails at 18A.

    It does not exceed 245 watts at max load for the video card alone .
  3. The GTX280 needs a 6 pin and 8 pin psu cable. It looks to me like the fsp unit only provides two 6 pin connectors.

    I would second the upgrade to an adequate PSU. The PC P&C silencer610 at $89 has 49 good amps.

  4. This is the new version they carry has 2 8 pin connectors 4 6 pin connectors.
  5. Get a real PSU. PCP&C 610W.
