More about 9800
  1. i believe u need at least 450W psu with a min ~24 amps on the 12v rail. anyway, 450W is pretty low for today's standard. u should really think about gettin new psu, and get some quality brand, like corsair, enermax, antec etc.
  2. Tell the brand of that card.

    BTW your SMPS is not good enough for that card.
  3. Gee this is too easy. The model number matches up to and XFX card at newegg which reports minimum system requirement of 400w - so you should be good to go.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150434

    I took it one step furthe and simply linked from newegg to the manufacturers page for the item and it reports the same, although it also indicates it requires one 6-pin power connector.

  4. Tell the brand of that card.

    atx MERCURY SMPS .BUT MINE HAS ONLY 92 ONLY STREAM PROCESSORS.ON THE COVER IT STATES 550 W &12V RAIL WITH MIN 40A.MY CARD IS XFX NVIDIA 9800 GT
  5. What do you beleive - the manufacturer's website or the product box?
    Seems very strange both that box would say 20 few processers but also 150w more required for minumum system requirement. Some wires are crossed somewhere. Maybe you should contact the manufacturer.
  6. Even a low power 9800GT won't run reliably on a Mercury SMPS.
    Its low quality junk.

    Get a better SMPS or risk your pc on it.

    If you want something cheap as PSU upgrade then consider these ones:
    VIP Silver 500w --Rs 1800
    Gigabyte Superb 460W- Rs 2000

    Or the ideal one:

    Corsair 400w(CX400)-Rs 3100
    (I have this one with 9800GT)
  7. I used to connect only one 80 gb hard disc while playing games.the requires about 6-9 amps to run .isn't that enough.i would also dissconnect the dvd drive too.
    MINE DOES NOT HAVE A 6-PIN POWER CONNECTOR.SO I COULD NOT FIND THE EXACT SPECS IN ANY OFFICIAL SITE
  8. when did you get the corsair smps where .i too plan to get it
  9. I got it 3 months ago.
    I m from New delhi.
    Got it from Nehru place.
    (I Can tell you the shop if you want to know)

    Or get it from here:
