Gt 250 Tags: Nvidia Power Graphics Last response: December 8, 2010 6:59 AM in Graphics & Displays Share paras33 December 7, 2010 11:23:29 AM guys plz tell if gts 250 will run on 400 w power supply n is it better than 9800 like 40nm technology for power saving n stuff more cores n stuff? asap thx More about : 250 N.Broekhuijsen December 7, 2010 11:36:34 AM GTS250 is identical to the 9800GTX+, except for a new PCB, although commonly you will see the old PCB used. nothing better though, and a 400watt PSU is really pushing it, probably won't work. Depends on the rest of the system. I'd reccomend absolute minimum at 450, but preferably 500 or more! paras33 December 7, 2010 11:41:54 AM i have core 2 quad 8200 and intel g31 pr n 2gig ddr2 ram 320 gb hard disk wil it wrk r shall i cancel the order Related resources $1500 - Asus G55VW-DS71 or MSI GT 60 0ND- 250 US or Other - Forum GTS 250 vs GT 640 - Forum Upgrading 9800 GT , $ 250 Budget - Forum GT 640 on 250 PSU - Forum PNY NVidia GT 430 with 250 W power supply - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'd keep the order, but walk to a local store and pick up a 500+ watt unit to be sure, or add that to the order paras33 December 8, 2010 4:35:12 AM dude can u help identify the psu specs thrs a lot of on tht +12v kind written along with many numbers i have run nvidia 210,220 on it easily N.Broekhuijsen December 8, 2010 6:59:16 AM yes but nVidia 210 and 220 are very efficient, using around 30 watts ish, the 250 has a peak tdp of 144 watts. That is what worries me. The PSU you have: 15A @ 12V = 180 watts..... with 144 for CPU, then 36 left for other things... no way that PSU is going to pull it. Definetely need a heavier PSU in order to get this to run. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
