8800gt and Antec True Power TRIO 430W


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.

  1. yes 430 watts is plenty for it
  2. yes, but is there enought amperage for it?
  3. if you bought it within 2-3 years then yes
  4. yes, but it was bought somewhere around 6 years ago
  5. then no, back then they had different power usage and therefore different power out puts

    you will want a new PSU
  6. yeah, but my friend told me about overclocking, he says it will still work, is that true? i think the antec has is 16amp
