DJready August 31, 2010 5:16:30 PM the PSU is from Spirepower: http://power.spire.nl/product_detail.asp?ProdID=919# Related resources 850 Watt PSU enogh ? 2 x XFX 5970 BR - Forum Will my PSU be enogh for an 8800GT? - Forum Not enogh power for my graphics card ??? - Forum Will a GTX 570 leave enogh clearnance for sata plugs? - Forum 600watt enogh - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If the people over @ Guru3D are correct: Jewel Black SP-ATX-420WTB-PFC-1 has only about ~15Amps +12V. That is really low (and I mean REALLY low) amount of +12V power for a 420W PSU. Something we'd expect to see in a 300W PSU. For a decent 420W PSU we'd expect to see 24Amps or higher for +12V. Here is a budget $25 300W PSU: FSP Group ATX300-PA 300W And it has 22Amps of +12V. (12V1+12V2=264watts Max / 264watts divided by 12volts = 22Amps) Emperus a c 91 ) Power supply August 31, 2010 6:38:44 PM The Corsair CX400 will be able to handle your rig adequately.. Don't count on your current PSU.. WR2 has explained everything properly anyway.. aebome August 31, 2010 6:56:50 PM I think the Corsair CX400 has been replaced by the CX430. Definitely the PSU to be looking at. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-... DJready August 31, 2010 7:22:29 PM uhm, i just wonder why does most PSU that are even 500 or 600 watts have 15-18Amps +12? Where i live that Crosair CX400 is 76 euro/96$ WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply August 31, 2010 7:29:31 PM DJready said:uhm, i just wonder why does most PSU that are even 500 or 600 watts have 15-18Amps +12?Likely you're not reading the data label correctly. What is your budget for a replacement PSU? Can you find an Antec EA-380D for a decent price? It has 28Amps +12V. WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply August 31, 2010 7:34:30 PM Don't forget you can look up the the +12V total power for lots of different PSUs in that link in my 2nd post. --> Guru3D: PSU Max Combined 12v Ratings badoosh August 31, 2010 7:34:35 PM I would recommend getting at least a 650w or 850w and any Ultra or Silverstone Stryder 650-850 will work. I recommend Silverstone and Ultra for anyone that is into PC gaming. DJready August 31, 2010 7:37:07 PM no i can't find that PSU where i live This is one of the shops here maybe you can find a decent one? http://www.agt.si/racunalniska-oprema/napajalniki/ WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply August 31, 2010 7:53:56 PM Any more online stores you can shop from? Not a lot of options at that site. SilverStone SST-ST50F-ES 500W and 34Amps +12V is reasonably good PSU. The LC Power 'Silent Giants' are mostly made by Huntkey - definitely stay away from those. Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500 review is just a bit below average quality. Something less than 30amps +12V, probably 25Amps would be a good guess. DJready August 31, 2010 8:00:37 PM whell there is this one http://www.mlacom.si/pregled-artiklov/2889/do-460W but anything more than 40 euro is too much for me atm. WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply August 31, 2010 8:17:51 PM ThermalTake Litepower 400W ~19Amps - another disappointment. be quiet! Pure Power L7 350W has ~25Amps but is just over your budget.
