Will this powersupply work for the geforce gtx 285 card?

The card has a recomended power requirement of 550W and 40A on the 12v rails. will this 600W PSU work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817339025

Output +3.3V@24A, +5V@15A, +12V1@30A, +12V2@22A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2.5A

can the card use multiple 12v rails? or will the 2 6 pin supplimentary cords help provide the amps required?

  1. No, that PSU will die and take your investment with it. Spend a bit more for a good quality PSU.

  2. I second that. The one thing you never want to skimp on is the PSU.
  3. Yes, but get something better, cheap powersupplies can kill a system if they fail and often struggle to reach their declared output, leading to an unstable system.
    If you do not want to use the unit linked by IH8U look for 550-650W with twin 6+2
    pin PCI-E cables from: Corsair, Pc Power and Cooling, Ocz, Antec or Seasonic.
