I would just put that $70 it costs towards a better power supply. techguy911 June 20, 2008 8:25:42 PM 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 .

I would second the upgrade to an adequate PSU.
