Thought i would start a new thread on this rather than continue it on my other thread.
Phenom II 965 be
wd 500gb hdd
4gb ddr3 1333mhz
xfx 650w 52a +12v
The problem is my psu seems to be arcing so it is being rma'd.
I needed my system running asap as i do work through it.
I wemt to my local shop and got a ezcool 650w
it is dual rail with 20a on each rail (40a in total), i have been looking and that seems fine to run my system but not sure on this brand as i use corsair xfx and so on.
Also the gtx460 uses 2 pci-e connectors and this has two but they are both on the same cable about 5 inches from each other, all the other power supplys i have had have them on seperate cables, two pci-e connectors on one cable? is that right or is it just a extension. It also states sli on the box for the psu, dont think that is right.
I am only going to be running this psu for about 10-14days at max, but use it for gaming
As far as i know ezcool isn't that great they a very average brand of PSU. As far as power consumption goes on the GTX 460 i do not think it is as great as you would suspect it was designed after the Nvidia GTX2 series cards and has slightly more architecture upgrades. Take a look at this link i think it mite explain things more rationally.
