    yep, even a 500W is enough for that :D


    Well newegg.com says it needs 575W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 42A or more. I know its enough wattage but what about the Amps? How can I tell if the PSU has enough?
  4. Look at the 12V rail.

    Theres 3, two at 22A, and one more at 25A. So do I just add those together?
  6. A decent 650 watter will run any single GPU GFX card.

    That card pulls 123 watts....

    use this to 'do the math" for you:

    It has combined 540 watts for the +12 volt that gives 540/12 = 45amps constant load on the combined rail

    So just barely enough to run it. Thanks, I believed all of you, just wanted to understand why.
