* Recommended is a 450 watt PSU with one 75 watt 6 pin PCI Express connector, but could be run on a quality 400 watt PSU. 600 watt with two 6 pin connectors will be needed for crossfire.
* Recommended 37 Amps on 12 volt rail for single card and 50 Amps for crossfire. This card can run on lesser this is just recommended and will be able to run with at least 30 Amps on 12 volt rail.
So it shows the required amps per rail at 30-37, the OCZ is rated at 50 amps per rail, but it's a 2 rail. Does that mean it's actually 25A per rail? I searched through 10 pages of reviews on this PSU and some people said 25A while a few others said 50A. So I wanted to check here with you guys.
I will not be doing any SLI or CF, but OC is something I'd be interested in, in the future with more knowledge on the subject unless it requires more work/money than is worth it to me. Meaning if the OCZ will work perfectly fine as long as I never OC, but if I ever plan to OC then I'll need the Corsair, then I'll be fine with not OC.
Thank you in advance for your help and any advice or knowledge you're willing to share.
It can handle the system without any doubt. Don't worry. If you like its look, go for it. It's a good PSU which has been made by Sirtec. In my opinion, there are some better options, but, as i have said before, if you likes its look, it's ok
It should be able to power your 5770, no problem. However, I have had bad experiences with OCZ PSU's and they don't last very long (my last one lasted for 5 months, OCZ stealthxstream). I would suggest going with a stronger PSU, maybe Antec Earthwatts
Haha I'm doing the same combo deal on the GPU and PSU, and btw it ends tonight for the rebates. I'm trying to figure out the dimensions since they don't label which is which. Dimensions 5.9" x 3.4" x 6.3" anyone know what one is height, length, and width?
I have that PSU in an encoding rig I built a few months back and it has been on 24\7 for 4 months straight with no problems at all plenty of power for a 5770. And surprisingly OCZ rebate was fast too got the visa gift card in a little over 3 weeks with no problems its a steal at the price it is being offered at with the rebate.
I dont believe its a true dual rail PSU I do know max combined output for the OCZ 550 Fatality is 38 AMPs which is plenty of juice to run the 5770 it could probably handle crossfire too but that would push it to its limit.
