Solved 9800GT and my PSU Tags: Nvidia Power Graphics Last response: November 15, 2009 4:00 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dsiglin November 15, 2009 3:18:59 AM My question is very simple. I have this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm thinking about getting a 9800GT OC and I want to know if that PSU can run it. If not can you recommend a PSU (under $50) that can? Secondary question: does a 4870 take less power to run than a 9800GT? I know it seems like a simple question but someone told me that the 4870 actually draws less power. Tertiary question: what is the math I need to know in order to determine myself if a PSU can handle a card? More about : 9800gt psu shadow187 a b Î Nvidia November 15, 2009 3:24:08 AM It /should/. No, the 4870 requires (to my knowledge) 2x 6pins. Best solution Noobster15 November 15, 2009 3:37:57 AM Yes it can. Look in the specifications it says 2X 6-Pin and in the picture you can see both connectors. If you ever need to get a new PSU for under 50$ this powersupply is a much better brand. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... BFB 550 Watt Powersupply $49.99 Trust me just because its 25watts lower does not mean its a crappier Powersupply. Better build quality and reliability.
