535W for GTS 250 Card Requires 26A... Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: April 3, 2009 4:03 PM in Graphics & Displays Share rnbsuperstar April 2, 2009 11:22:30 PM I have an Enermax EG565P-VE with dual 12V rails at 22A each. I just purchased a BFG GeForce GTS 250 card and the requirements of the card says: 475W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 26A or more. Will my PSU support it? does combined mean 22 x 2 = 44A ? or do I need a PSU with dual 12V rails at 22A each? Thanks.

The only thing you know about his system is the GPU (which is not terribly power hungry). A 500W PSU is plenty for most systems. And you will not have the option of moving a PCIe connector to a different rail. rwpritchett a b U Graphics card April 3, 2009 4:03:32 PM You'll be fine with the Enermax. I've been running a 9800GTX+ (GTS-250 is the same, just renamed) on a Corsair 450W (single 34A rail) for quite a while. rolli has it right. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
