This PSU ran my X1950Pro with no trouble (before I screwed the Graphics card up) and I was wondering whether it would run a HD4870PCS+ 1GB?
I have one free molex at the moment, I shall have to use a Y-splitter for my HDD's so I can free up another molex. Then I shall use 2 molex to 6pin pci-e converters. Is this a good idea? Or should I concede to replacing my PSU with another that has 2 6pin pci-es already? Any recommendations for another PSU for less than £50 that does the job? (if mine doesn't...)
Thanks for the response. I have now bought another PSU.
My budget has forced me to buy a PowerCool PSUPC750AUBA 750W 80+ Dual 12v V2.2 High Efficiency Black PSU.
It has dual rail, 16amps and 18amps respectively, and 2 pci-e 6 pin connectors. Will this one work???
there is still the chance for me to cancel my order
I would, then again, I wouldn't have ordered it in the first place
Only 2 PCIE connectors on a 750w ?
34 amps ( maybe ) on 2 x 12v rails ? My Antec 500 can do that.
80+ ? You won't find it ( or any "Powercool" ) on thier list; http://www.80plus.org/
Let the community know where you are purchasing from and you might get some better reccomendations.
OK I am still a novice with PC hardware, so I am listening to those more learned than me, and getting that OCZ Fatal1ty obsidian mentioned. I've just sent off a message to play.com asking to cancel my order, an automated message came back saying they will contact me in the next 72 hours.
So regarding this new OCZ PSU, it says it has a 6pin pci-e and 6+2pin pci-e. Do I load the the graphics card onto rail 12v2 through the two pci-e's supplied, and pile everything else on 12v1? i.e MB, 3xHDD's, DVDRW.
Oh good. Best to be safe than sorry. I'de rather pay £20 more for an overkill PSU than get one which may or may not work.
Thanks for all the advice. If you don't hear from me again about this matter, it is safe to say I have everything sorted
Hehe, where would I be without the help of you guys on this great forum.
One last question for the time being, regarding the OCZ Fatal1ty 550W:
It is a modular PSU, as I have seen from the plethora of reviews; the only cables that are fixed are the 20-24 MB and 4 and 8 pin CPU cables. Seems like a stupid question, but which 12v rail are the fixed cables on?
well that sucks. I want my CPU, HDD's, MB and DVDRW on +12v1, and my HD4870 exclusively using +12v2. Are you saying thats not possible with the OCZ Fatal1ty? I dout one 20amp rail could run that graphics card, 3 HDDs AND a DVDRW, and the e8400 having 1 20amp rail to itself is major overkill, isn't it?
