what does asus 250 gts detail power consumption? what is the minimum watt at +12v? i just bought raidmax KY-600atx (500w)
+12v/22.0A
+3.3/28.0A
+5v/38.0A

does it support asus 250 gts?

I need all the specifications of the system for a better reply

1- CPU
2- Mobo
3- HDD
4- GPU (GTS250)
5- Drives
6- RAM

But, you current PSU isn't from a good brand, so, i think that isn't enough.

With this ( http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/ ) link you can calculate your PSU. I think that with a 400W PSU is enough, BUT from a good manufacturer, like Thermaltake, OCZ, Antec, Coolermaster, PC power and cooling----

The video has been around for some time now, there were discussions and research done to determine it's manufacturer.
Didn't say it was like yours, said it was a Raidmax.
If you paint your car and put a hood scoop on it, does it change what's under the hood ?

---------------------

The problems aren't the +12C/18A and +12V/19A. The problems are that this must be continuos and with a generic PSU you don't know this. And always is better a PSU with PFC active.

I hate Raidmax, but this wont affect my review.
Seems like not many people knows much about PSUs. All they suggest get an expensive PSU.
I wonder what would they suggest to some guy who is trying barely budget a car. Duh get a Mercedes, BMW or maybe Ferrari. Easy to say.
The card you have requires 26 amp on a single 12v rail, so your raidmax KY-600atx is no good. Not because it is Raidmax, but because the psu u have has no good specs for ur vga. Your new purchase gigabyte superb 720W and even some suggested PSUs don't have 26amp on a single rail. Although I haven't seen any fatality on the senario with multi low amp 12v rail PSUs (with a total of a decent amounth of amps on 12v rails) and VGAs required specific amps on a single rail, so you should be fine at least awhile. With shipping I am guessing you spent over $100 which I think ~$65 you could spend for a better vga.

That's different.
Reccomend someone buy a cheap , low quality power supply so they can afford to buy a more expensive graphics card. :pfff:

lets say ur right in ur 15amps, then that leaves him with 7amps more. 7x12 = 86 watts. his proc uses 65 watts.

..and the other components barely uses electricity.

What do you consider cheap? Rosewill RG700-S12 700W was $40 I guess it was a bad PSU and now it is $80 it is expensive for what it is. You must think it is a good PSU now ha? It is all about marketing, especially when it comes to PSU. You are basically paying no tech mechanic wires, capacitors and aluminium blocks 100s of dollars. Japanese and chinese capacitors are different argument to do with pregidousim. Do you even know what they consider room temprature for 80Plus testing. And what room temprature they use to make fun of raidmax psu video (eventho I told you I hate raidmax and they are the worst items I've ever dealed with). In real world room temprature (which they used in the video), most of 80 plus Corsair products wont pass %80 efficiency at %20, %50, %100 loads which the load equivalent they use during 80plus certificate tests. Therefore, making fun of %75 efficiency is not ethical I think. I personally prefer my PSU dieing instead of supplying less watt then the required watt to the devices and resulting the device failures in long run. If you guys try to load 500w required system with any 500w power supplies with low amps in specific rails, of course those things happen. I am not saying buy cheap as you can go. I am saying do your search on amps and reviews than you are safe as (or in danger as) any expensive PSUs.

so no one uses a psu at 20% 50% or 100% capacity? maybe not a 100% but you get my point

Thank you BruceOTB.
As you see just because HEC's marketting policy was not built on manipulation and they sell cheaper, some people thinks they are bad PSUs. Yes they also make PSUs with low amp 12v rails which have different use other than gaming PCs but their high ampage 12v rail models are good and affordable for high end PCs.

To the delluser1;
As I mention before, Don't get stucked to brands. Just stick to the models. They were 3 cheap models could handle his computer and he does not have alot of option when it comes to budget PSU with high specs. There are kazilion cheap PSUs with high wattage low specs. Anyway Rosewill RG700-S12 is now $80 constant after getting series of good reviews so that is not an option anymore.

To obsidian;
I don't think I am a newbie to learn through mistakes any more. I have been building computers since 1997 or 98.
My first build was (as much as I remember)
PII 450mhz
8mb voodoo 3d
Sony 15" Trinitron
Asus m.board
Creative SoundBlaster 64 Pro
Creative CDrom
64mb ram
windows 95
+ printer +PSU

Cost me over $2000, so I don't think I was cheap neither. It was a mistake to buy PII 450mhz in the first day of it was on the market for over $600. Few months later PIII was out. So I learned; The money you spend on an item not necessarily deserves what you paid. Don't throw away your money!

I'm not stuck on any particular brand ( though I have used Antec more than any other due to the fact that they are good quality and fairly inexpensive ) I do however avoid low quality junk.

Don't know where you've seen a series of good reviews ( Newegg reviews mean nothing )
There has been one good review of the new Rosewill RG series
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/881/10

It was enough for me to reccomend it as a good budget buy to several people, then a couple of them had issue's with it ( 1 DOA 630w , 1 530w failed to power a sytem that needed nowhere near the power that the psu should have been capable of delivering ), therefore Rosewill goes back into my "avoid " list.

so guys, i am confused here. so isn't it +12v rail counted by combination of all the +12amp at all rail? bcoz i have read other thread, they say if the combination of all +12v rail pass the required amount of power, it should be okay. let say that my psu has double +12v rail and 20a at each rail, and it will be count as 20 x 12 = 220W x 2 = 440W.and if the graphic card required 28A, and a couple rail of +12v @ 20A is good enough bcoz its equal to 40A.but kestanefb, u said that power requirements depend on single rail +12v. so, what happen to another Watt at the other rail? what they are used for? if this is a noobiest question, i am sorry bcoz i am not a PSUs engineer.
