Then what is the point to having insurance? | Report abuse jaguarskx January 11, 2010 1:12:31 AM Quote:Just buy a 750W supply, works for pretty much anything and can be carried over in new builds. A 750w PSU is overkill for most systems, excluding gaming systems with 2 hungry GPUs. My system in my sig is powered by a Seasonic 550w PSU. | Report abuse 4745454b January 11, 2010 2:01:52 AM Insurance is a good battery backup. Not a larger then needed PSU. | Report abuse darksupernova January 18, 2010 10:44:43 AM Thanks for your replys, @TheGreatGrapeApe The title says at AC Source yes, but i thought that could mean the source of power for the card OR the whole system, sorry for my obvious ignorance. @strangestranger Ive got a corsair 520w PSU and havnt really got the money to buy a bigger one, so i wanted to know if it would be enough before i baught a hungry card. Thanks for all your help guys, some very useful links. Max | Report abuse 4745454b January 19, 2010 12:08:24 AM The Corsair is a fine unit. Go ahead and use any card with it. | Report abuse darksupernova January 26, 2010 12:05:16 PM Got a HD5850 and it works beautifully, now i wish ATI would release some 3D gaming support! | Report abuse darksupernova February 2, 2010 7:15:56 AM Best answer selected by darksupernova. | Report abuse jyjjy February 2, 2010 1:39:35 PM What do you mean by "release some 3D gaming support"? | Report abuse strangestranger February 2, 2010 1:42:53 PM He means support glasses and whatnot like nvidia has with 3dvision or whatever it is called. I knw they are going to be adding support sometime soon although it will be third party only. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Power consumption chart> Related ressources: ForumPower consumption in CPU charts?
