Power supply Tags: Power Supplies Graphics Cards Components Last response: May 3, 2010 5:33 PM in Components Share blade_the_first May 1, 2010 7:52:35 AM Hello Guys, I currently have an Intel E8400 running on a gigabyte EP45C DS3R with 4 GB of DDR2-800 ram ,two harddisks , 7600GT and an Antec Earthwatts 500. I plan to upgrade the graphics card to an MSI Hawk 5770 1GB card. My question is whether the PSU is sufficient to run this graphics card in my system? Thanks in advance..

The HD 5770 only consumed less than 400W of power in a Core i7 975 3.33GHz system. and the E8400 uses a lot less energy. ksampanna a b ) Power supply May 1, 2010 8:38:38 AM No worries, it is enough Related resources Radeon HD 5770 power supply question - Forum Power supply fan has become really noisy - Forum Best power supply and case combo - Forum Computer won\'t turn on.
