I have quite a stupid computer, everything is at stock (Except my graphics card). Anyway, I desperately need to upgrade. My power supply is a 385W. On the 12V rails, it supplies just 14 amps. My current card (Nvidia 7200GS) demands 18A from the 12V rails. The Nvidia 9500GT wants the same amount of power. Is it safe for me to upgrade to the 9500GT with my PSU? And which cards would work on my PC, irrespective of price.
well i'll tell you this. Ive been running a 9400gt on a no-name 250watt powersupply and overclocked. Now, its not exactly the same card but the only different is like 16 stream processors. you should be fine with power
