  1. I'm assuming that isn't a high end psu.

    Get at least a 500w from Antec, Seasonic or the likes. That'll keep you ok for now and for several video cards later. ( assuming you don't plan to crossfire )
  2. Try it with the 6 pin pci express adapter. According to the Antec power supply calculator you need 112W min to run that GFX card. Therefore it will depend on the rest of your system. Why buy a new PSU when you may not need it?
  3. It would help if you posted a list of your pc components.
  4. My PC specifications :
    dual core E5400
    DG41RQ board lga 774
    G 41 chipset
    Atx 350w psu
    kingston 1gb ram ddr2


    Recently i find out on some specs written on my psu here they are:
    intex atx 2.03
    350w,20=4pin,1sata,3hdd,1fdd,1fan
    ac input : 220v 50 hz 5a
    dc output: +3.3v:20A+5v:25A+12v:13A-12v:0.5A=5vSB:2A

    you should upgrade your RAM to 2GB if you use Win XP, 3-4GB for Vista or Windows 7

    I ran a factory OC 9600GT with a 305w PSU using the adapter, the card does not draw much power.

    Of Which brand psu you have and since what time your using this adapter i think this 6 pin pci express adapter is temporary

  8. i ran it on a DELL 305w PSU


    25a on the 12v is more then enough for the 9600GT

    my eyes playing tricks on me
  9. thats not 25a on the 12v rail. thats for the 3.3v rail which means this PSU is old too.

    The 12v rail only has 13A, still thats ~150w so I dont recommend overclocking much. I think you will be ok if your PSU can handle running at 75% load

    Never run the 9600gt in an intex psu,intex psu's are local psu's,It will not be able to produce more than 200w!
    I am using an intex 450w psu,but its not able to run my p4 630, p5kpl am ps ,2 hdd and 2gb ram !

    I think you are from india,I am also from India
    I recomend you to buy atleast a CORSAIR CX400,Which is about2.8K in india,or you can get coolermaster 350w psu's for 1.4k!
