  1. 550W is a little on the low side for an X2. look for around 650-700 IMO.
  2. In fact, according to the table, it's actually only a 500W unit. Tut tut Thermaltake!
  3. No way that psu is good enough , look at the 12v , no where near what that vid card calls for . should look at 650 -700 watt psu just to make sure .14a on 1 and 15a on 12v2 , the card calls for at least 18a
  4. man what a rip off 120$ power supply last time i buy thermaltake
  5. That's a horrific looking PSU, check out the reviews!
    Try this for an extra $10

    It is an old design , look at the 5v rail 32 a . 6he tr2 line ain't great , years ago i had the tr2 430 watt and it was lucky if it could put out 350 .
