Hi people. I would like to ask if 9800GT asus with 1GB will run on a mtech power supply with one 12V rail at 23A. Thanks for your help.
My specs are AMD x2 5400+, 2GB, 320GB hd
I am worried about the amps, should i buy better psu?
There are 2 different versions of the 9800GT. The newer version uses much less power and doesn't have a 6-pin power connector. Your PSU can definitely handle that card fine. It can probably handle the other as well but if you want to be safe just look for one that doesn't have the power connector.
You also may want to consider the HD5670 instead. Similar performance and price but it is DX11 compatible, supports 3 monitors and has more current video/audio playback features.
from my own experience of running the 9800GT & 125w CPU on a 18a single rail PSU, he won't be "border lining". In fact, i find your experience level with PSU information...lacking of knowledge.
I speak only of my own experiences. I do not work for a computer store so what you say is well within reason.
Don't let me confuse us. I'm still gearing for the future so looking at the past I could have my wires crossed.
If it ain't needing over 36a I probably have no business posting about it.
I had to go through the whole "Why won't my 8800GT run on my Bestec 300 watt PSU" question about 3 years ago, so I'd say I have a little knowledge on it.
