Computer won't power on when the graphic card is plugged in
i helped my friend build a system and everything was working fine until i plugged in the graphic card to the psu. Without the card plugged in, the computer turns on just fine but when i plug the graphic card in and turn on the system the fans spin one rotation then the system goes dead and i cannot turn on the computer for about 5 minutes of letting the computer be with the cord out even if the card is not plugged in
now i know that the most likely culprit is the psu but it seems like it would be enough but im no psu expert
Glad to help. Any of the Antec Earthwatts PSUs can handle that card, but I'd probably choose the 500W model for most efficient operation and some headroom. Corsair, Seasonic, and Enermax also make solid PSUs.
