Tags: Graphics Cards Power Supplies Graphics Last response: November 18, 2010 7:58 AM in Graphics & Displays Share ankur_ssa November 17, 2010 9:33:21 AM Hi all, I bought a new Graphic Card (NVidia GeForce 9800GT 1 GB Low Power Version) http://www.kfa2.com/images/large98GTLP_image_2.jpg When I was playing Crysis Warhead game(Normal Settings), there was some spark in my cabinet and my old SMPS (XTech 400W) was burnt out. Nuv I bought a new SMPS Odyssey 450W My doubt is will the same happen again or, is this power supply enough for my graphic card to play any games? coz my graphic card had specified to have minimum 400W power supply. Or shall I buy a Good SMPS like CoolMaster 500W? Plz help me out.

It is almost the cost of Graphic card. When it says minimum power needed for graphic card is 400W, wil 450W do the job? And moreover I am not at all worried abt my SMPS anymore, Is there any possibilities of getting my graphic card or motherboard and processors getting burnt? microterf November 17, 2010 11:35:22 AM 450 should work fine. But a psu is one of the best investments you can make, so don't skimp if you can afford it. wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card a b ) Power supply November 17, 2010 12:58:44 PM If you can't afford corsair or so then it's okay to get that coolermaster 500W, really, it should enough to run your card... kovaxo November 17, 2010 1:22:47 PM 450w will defiantly do the job , but investing on power supply would be good in long term if you need something just to run this card 400w will be gd enough ankur_ssa November 18, 2010 7:58:26 AM Thank you guys, Is there any possibilities of Motherboard, Processor getting damaged if any problem faced with the PSU to my graphic card?
