Ive got a problem. Ordered a GTX 470 and just realized that it needs a:

Minimum of a 550 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 38 Amps.)


I haven't built a pc since AGP days and even then I was just an amateur who read some guides.


This is my PSU at the moment:

Will it have, because of the two connections to the psu have 60amps to work with or just 30amps? If this question doesn't make any sense, simply will it work?

Thanks in advance.

That's not a particularly good brand but it should be more than enough for a GTX 470. The card actually gets its power from the motherboard and 2 separate PCI-E connectors. These can all be different rails so what you are talking about isn't an issue.
