Would a 500w PSU run BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 OC 512MB PCIe 2.0 ?
Jan 23, 2010, 6:15 PM
I'm currently looking at the BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 OC 512MB PCIe 2.0. On the BFG website they mention;
475W PCI Express®-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 26A or more (Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core®2 Duo E6750 processor)
I'm using a Antec EA-500D PSU with mentions of 12V 22A. Sadly I have no idea if thats above or below 26A...
I'm also running with a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor.
My PC is around a year and a half old... my current Evga 8800GT is having overheating issues... and playing with my case open + a fan shooting in isn't the most pleasant of experience...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
