    I went to the website and you need at minimum a 450w. So yeah, that PSU will work fine.

    No No No!

    Rosewill, like Diablotec or Logisys makes crappy PSU shaped objects which can fry your Motherboard or other components in no time.

    Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, Lepa, Enermax makes great PSUs.

    I recommend you this one : CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 - http://newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

    It can run two 460Ti's infact.

    That PSU you linked is 430w? and one 460 requires at least 450w, so that can't run two of 'em.

    But yeah, I would recommend corsair as well.
  4. Ok but its a 430w and the GPU company advise a 450w minimum. But they also tell that I need a 12v. 24amp rail. Are you sure this is gonna be enough (I have a a core 2 quad q9300 I want to oc it just a bit and a standard atx MOBO socket LGA775). BTW thanks for the answer !
  5. BTW if I have a psu that has a 12v1 18amp and a 12v2 18amp, does it equals a 12v 36amp, cuz' this would be awesome.


    Edit: I think this is the thing ;) http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027

    I don't know tbh, but they are two separate rails, so I doubt that they would be the same as one 12v36amp...but someone can correct me if I am wrong. :)
  7. Corsair one delivers 28AMPS through its +12V rail. And can actually deliver upto 35A.
    GPU companies tend to recommend higher capacity PSUs than what is actually required.
