New graphics card with a 500w 12v 22A power supply

I want to get a new graphics card, but my power supply is a EA500D green 12V 22A. Does anyone know of any good graphics cards that will be able to work in my computer? Preferably under $200.

  1. Lets straighten some things out first. Power requirements listed for cards are actually for the whole system so they are referring to the combined power between the 12 V rails. Your EA500D has 2 12 V rails with 22 A limits on each one and 444 W (37 A) available between the two of them, its that 37 A number that is important. The EA500D can run pretty much any single card, i wouldn't run a GTX 480 on it, but something like a 560 Ti or a 6950 are well within its capabilities.
  2. oh thank you very much
  3. hunter315, in trying to apply what you said to my situation, where did the 37A figure come from?
  4. Newegg has pictures of the sticker with the load table on it which is where i got the number from. Its also in the product flyer

    At the bottom of the output table it says "+12V1, +12V2 Maximum combined output 444 W", 444 W divided by 12 V is 37 A.
