Hello,

I registered with this forum in order to get an answer about my power unit.
My friend has bought an 8800gt graphics card, and i was wondering if it is compatible with my ANTEC True power trio.
It is the 430 Watt version, and it is aprox 5 years old. If anyone could tell me about the compatibility of the two devices i would be grateful. I tried to do some research, and i found that the unit has ample Watts and 3 12 volt rails, however, I noticed that the rails are 16 amp. Please tell me if my friends videocard is compatible with my power unit.

then no, back then they had different power usage and therefore different power out puts

you will want a new PSU
