Hello,

It has 30A on the 12V rail. Will this be enough? I see the official line is 38A minimum.

System Specs;
4GB Ram
AMD Phenom 9600 Quadcore
2 DVD-RW drives
200GB Sata HD


Thanks for any help!

i think should be no problem as long as you nt oc with your pc... and no running benchmarks because benchmarks will push your hardware even harder... sucking more power from your plug... bt for safe... i think you should get a new power supply... at least a branded one like cooler master or antec... if you want to upgrade your gpu...

If you decided to buy new psu whatever. I just wanted to say that you are wrong, GTX 460 1GB requires 24A! Where did you find out that it requires 38A?? And your psu have 30A, so it should power that card just like mine can... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/307513-33-cooler-mast...

What is your PSU model!? GTX 460 1GB in max load consumes 331W for hole system....

You should be good. If not, upgrade.

given that you have good quality PSU you should be fine. just be mindful if you want to overclock your system. if you want to overclock your cpu and gpu to its limit you might want to get better PSU for your system
