  1. you´ll be ok
  2. Amps on the 12v line? It should work for a while, psu will start to degrade though

    What do you mean by amps on the 12V line? i dont have much knowledge about PSUs
  4. There should be a label on the PSU that list the information he was asking for.
  5. my bro runs a 4850 on a 430w antec for couple months now
  6. and what about a 9600 GT on a 400W?
  7. depends what 400w you have tbh , a 400w named brand like a corsiar or tagan etc would be fine , but if its a no name brand cheapy then no it wont. it varies soo much from psu to psu. the stock case ones tend to be substandard and i wouldnt risk running either of those cards you mentioned on it tbh.
