Can my PSU support any of these cards? Tags: Graphics Cards Support Graphics Last response: November 19, 2008 11:53 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Hornet85 November 19, 2008 4:16:14 AM PSU: Acbel 450W Combined 12v rail output 25A I'm on a very tight budget here, and I'm planning on getting the 9800GT, or 9800GTX+ if I can find one. nVidia listed that the GT require 400W and GTX+ is 450W So my question here is, how close can I get to these requirement? Do they set this requirement higher a little to be safe, or lower for marketing purposes? My system here is C2D E6550 Intel G33 motherboard 2x 1GB Ram 2 HDD 2 standard casing fan and a DVD drive Absolutely no overclocking or anykind of casing mod. Can I run the 9800GT or GTX+ on my system? Thank you very much.

JDocs November 19, 2008 4:49:10 AM Acbel is one of the best brands from what I understand. Their PSUs are re branded by many top brands however despite their build quality I doubt a 300W(12v * 25A) is going to cut it.

Get the answer chechnyan November 19, 2008 5:42:11 AM i have a machine with HD3870 OCed and 6000+ OCed and they are Powerd with Acbel 470w 28A combined so i think yours will be ok with 9800gt rebranded 8800gt but like gkay09 am not sure about the GTX Cheesevillage November 19, 2008 7:01:19 AM Is the 4850 not being taken into consideration? I'm running mine on a no-name 350 watt. 'course, I'm only running one hard drive but that hardly accounts for the fact. Hornet85 November 19, 2008 11:53:42 PM Thanks everyone for all the replies cheesevillage, well, I was told that ATi do have a card that has better performance but also cost more than the 9800GTX+. Though I'm not sure if he meant the HD3870, or the 3850. I'll take a look at them again later on from reviews. I'm not exactly up to date with these new hardware, lol Can't find your answer ? Ask !
