I have a 600 W zebronics psu with the following specs:


AC Input 230v 5A 50Hz


DC Output +3.3V +5V +12V -12V -5V +5VSB
30A 30A 27A 0.8A 0.5A 2.0A

Number of connectors

* 24(20+4) Pin Connector x1
* Peripheral Connector 4 Pin x6
* ATX 12v 4 Pin Connector x1
* EPS 12v 8 Pin Connector x1
* PCI Express 6 Pin Connector x1
* SATA 15 Pin Connector x2
* Floppy 4 Pin Connector x2


currently my psu can handle my Sapphire hd 4890 ,Amd phenom x3 8450,Asus M2NVM- HDMI ,2x2GB zion DDr2 800mhz,2x250 Gb segate 7200rpm sata hdd, sony dvd ,system fan without any problem...

But right now I am thinking to upgrade my system which will include AMD phenom2 x4 955,Sapphire radeon hd 5870,
GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P ,2x2gb gskill 1600mhz,others unchanged....

So will this psu handle my new configuration??

It would have been better if you had aligned the amps with it's rail, but whatever.

It should. Now, that's just based on it's specs. I dont know how good of quality it is, but it has it in quantity powerwise.

Now, it doesn't have it in quantity PCI-E power plug wise. Even though it isn't popular you can use a 2 molex to 1 pci-e power adapter or get a quality PSU that has it natively.

sorry for the misalignment:

hope this is clear:
+3.3V +5V ..+12V..-12V...-5V....+5VSB
..30A ...30A... 27A... 0.8A...0.5A... 2.0A

I think the PSU is marginal, very marginal. A good 600 watt PSU should produce around 45 amps at 12 volts.

The problem is not the overall power rating of the PSU. It is the relatively light 12 volt rail.

I'd put in something like this:
Corsair 550VX (40 amp 12 volt rail)

Even this has more usable power:
Corsair 400CX (30 amp rail)

Well I am eager to how much power will a 5870 and ph2 x4 955 consume from 12v rails???

So you're going for the adapter plan? That card needs two plugs.
