Hello

I have an NZXT 850w Power supply here is a link :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OK so right now when i play video games my power cord that came with this PSU gets really hot on the cord it says 250 VAC ~

so i decided to buy a new cord from newegg.com and i found a 14AWG 125VAC cord here is a link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My question is would it matter if the VAC number is not the same?? i read somewhere that 14AWG supports 600 - 1000 Watt PSU's

Will i have any power issues using that cord?

Yes
You need a C13/14 not a C19
