I'd like to know if it's posible to run the GTS 450 with one of these PSUs without problems and if it will fit my MB.
I've used the search tool but I still have doubts and I want to be sure it's possible.
I use a 1366*768 Monitor and play games like Just Cause2, Crysis, Etc.
Also I'm not considering OC at all, and these are the only options I have atm (all PSU's cost the exact same).
Thanks a lot!
The GTS450 package lists the power supply requirement: http://www.evga.com/support/knowledgebase/
For the 450, it states a minimum of 400W
I would definitely go with Antec or Corsair. Cooler Master PSUs are not as good. The 500U EC should do the trick.
Michael, thanks for your fast reply.
Antec 450VP Fulfill those requirements on EVGA's page, so i assume it would be safe when gaming and 'high' loads.
My MotherBoard shouldn't be a problem right? It's a go then, Gts 450 and Antec 450vp ?
the antec 500w is the better of the three PSU, its 80+ efficient and the antec 450 tends to make a lot of noise (although fine for its price). really the spec you want to look at is the 12v rail on the PSU since that powers both your CPU and GPU (along with HDD). any PSU with 22a+ on its 12v rail will power your set up just fine. even the antec earth watt 380w with 28a on its 12v rail will actually offer better power then the three units you listed above.
