  3. If it's existing, I'd give it a shot.....if not, I'd buy an XFX Core Edition 650 (9/50 jonnyguru performance rating) for $55
  4. CM are hit and miss the GX is an OK PSU some other CM's are plain bad others good.

  6. If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.

  7. Sorry for the bad spelling in the previous post, typing on my phone and the autocorrection is in Swedish :p however.. If im not wrong my psu meets the req in amp and watts?
  8. It says that my psu has a single 12 rail with 44A, max power output 660w. And i think i need about 34 amps, so my psu should be enough right?
