9800gtx+, enough power? brand? Tags: Graphics Cards Power Corsair Graphics Product Last response: January 5, 2009 12:57 PM in Graphics & Displays Share draterrojam January 5, 2009 12:09:53 PM I am looking to upgrade to the 9800gtx+ from my 9600gt. I currently have a Corsair 450 VX. Will this be enough power for the 9800GTX+. I know the specs say only 450w is needed, but I wanted to make sure. Also, any brand recommendations? Was looking at BFG and EVGA. Finally, I only have one six-pin connector, I know it comes with a molex connector, is this really a big deal for my psu?

BFG, eVGA and XFX are the best IMO. Here's an XFX that comes with Far Cry 2: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150314 jsc a b U Graphics card January 5, 2009 12:57:03 PM aevm, Beat me to it. You have plenty of power. The 450VX has a 33 amp 12 volt output. A 9600 need about 5 amps. The GTX+ needs about 10 amps. Using a molex to 6 pin adapter will not be a problem. Can't find your answer ?
