Can the 9800gtx+ hand this raidmax PSU? Tags: Power Supplies EVGA Raidmax Power Components Product Last response: October 13, 2008 12:08 AM in Components Share visom2 October 12, 2008 6:24:19 PM Hi, I'm buying the evga 9800gtx+ and I need a good/cheap PSU to go with it. I found this raidmax PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... However the power requirements of the 9800gtx+ is 450watts, and 12v and 24amps The raidmax has the following for the outputs: Output +3.3V@28A,+5V@34A,+12V1@20A,+12V2@17A, -12V@0.8A,+5VSB@2.5A Do this mean that the raidmax is 4amps short for the 9800gtx? Or is the watts the only thing that will matter? Thx for any help, ill check back in a bit More about : 9800gtx hand raidmax psu GoblinFace October 12, 2008 6:38:56 PM It sounds fine. That PSU has 2 12v rails, so if you're only getting one GTX+ you can add the amps of the 2 rails together, so it should handle the card no problem. jaragon13 October 12, 2008 6:47:55 PM It will work fine,as you have two 12V+ rails.I know a guy who only has like two 17 amp rails,and it works fine for him paired with an E8400. Also,this Smilodon package includes the PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As for the case, I think it'd be cheaper if I buy an NZXT apollo case (60$ after rebate with free shipping) and the PSU seperately, I'll probably get a better deal. invisik October 13, 2008 12:08:11 AM it will work fine but i dont recommend that psu. i bough it and it broke within 2months luckily nothing went out in my system. i would recommend something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
