I ordered a Msi N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition graphic card and i am worried that my power supply isnt strong enough for it. I have been searching for the amount of watts the card uses but cannot find it. can anyone help?
In case it matters i have an 850w power supply right now. and i am planing on upgrading my CPU, GPU, and RAM.
But what is interesting is that power consumptions was actually higher than the GTX 480, not lower as NVIDIA claims. Yet we also really need to mention that the board used (engineering sample) had an older BIOS and that power consumption on this board might be a tad higher as a result of it.
