Earthwatts 500 and Radeon 5770. Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Antec Radeon Graphics Product Last response: March 10, 2010 11:19 AM in Graphics & Displays Share JBA1989 March 10, 2010 2:14:19 AM Hello, I was wondering if the Radeon 5770 would work with my Antec Earthwatts 500 PSU. I know it has more than enough watts, but, I was wondering about the amps on the 12v rails. PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thank you very much!

JBA1989 March 10, 2010 2:26:12 AM Not exactly sure what Bronze cert is, I am assuming something to do with the PSU's efficiency?

Antec's EW 500watt PSU would definitely be able to run it fine. JBA1989 March 10, 2010 2:37:01 AM Ok, thanks. I was just worried since I was told the max the EA500's 12v rails only had a max of 34amps and that the 5770 required 40 amps. MARSOC_Operator March 10, 2010 3:20:38 AM That's more than enough power. jaguarskx a c 355 U Graphics card March 10, 2010 3:22:59 AM Yeah the Antec is more than enough. It's been a while since I looked at the "medal standard", but I believe it is approximately as follows: 80 Plus = Minimum 80% efficiency 80 Plus Bronze = Minimum 82% efficiency 80 Plus Silver = Minimum 85% efficiency 80 Plus Gold = Minimum 89% efficiency JBA1989 March 10, 2010 3:24:01 AM Alright, thanks a lot for the help. invisik a b U Graphics card March 10, 2010 11:19:34 AM Running a q6600@ 3.2ghz and 2 gtx260 sli overclocked with that psu. =P Should handle that card without any problems.
