Would a 500w PSU run BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 OC 512MB PCIe 2.0 ? Tags: Graphics Cards Geforce Nvidia Graphics Last response: January 23, 2010 6:21 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Helevorn January 23, 2010 6:15:22 PM Hello 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.
