I have already ordered the parts for my new build from newegg.com. After doing this I further researched and learned about rails and amps per rail. Now im questioning my decision on this power supply or if it will work with the video card. I'm on a super tight budget so really would like this to work.

Here are the 2 items in question:


Power supply

COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power RS550-PCARE3-US 550W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Video Card

PNY VCGGTX260CXPB GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI

That PSU will be fine for one GTX 260.But if you decide to get another and run SLI,you will need a 650watt PSU with 45amps on the 12volt rail minimum.Have fun.
