About the GTX 570 Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Power Supplies Graphics Product Last response: December 10, 2010 12:45 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Doggerm12 December 10, 2010 12:39:46 AM I have a power supply 650watts with 35amps on the 12v rail. Would I be going overboard by installing this card? I also have an Athlon II X2 235 CPU, and 6GB of RAM, Windows 7 64-bit. I am wondering because I saw on Newegg for you need 38amps on the 12v rail, but with at least a 550w its required. Should I do it, or not?

You'll see the same performance as an HD5770. That's the best card I'd recommend for you as well; anything above that is very, very limiting. But yes, your PSU would run that just fine. m 0 l Doggerm12 December 10, 2010 12:45:30 AM Well I was waiting until sandy bridge so AMD Processors would drop in price. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
