Hey guys,

Can my Enermax 425V power a Radeon HD 5750?

Here is the rest of my system:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.0 LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Ultra Durable 2
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
A Linksys network Card
Western Digital 300GB 7200RPM HDD

The specs on the graphics card says it recommends a 450W power supply. Will I be ok? Also, is my game performance going to limited by another factor, i.e. is the graphics card overkill?

Thanks for any feedback!

Easily. Your PSU can put out 33 amps on the 12 volt rails.

An OC'd Q6600 will pull around 10 amps. A 5750 is a pretty efficient card. It only needs about 6 - 7 amps. That leaves plenty of power for the rest of the system.

If you can afford a few more dollars, you can get an HD 5770. It will let you play most all games on decent settings. It has the same PSU requirements.

I would also agree with the 5770 it seems a waste to buy the 5750 when the 5770 is right there in terms of price/bang for buck.
