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

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.

Thx for the help guys!

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.
