A good website that i will keep in mind. Do you think this PSU will run my new video card Asus gt 440 gddr5 1gb ?

easily, the GT440 hardly draws any power for a video card.

Yes it will. No problems there.

Awesome, thank you. It is an upgrade from my old GT 8600 to this one. Do u also think that the TDR problem occurs when the PSU does not have the minimum amperage of the video card on the 12v rail ? Will it be solved ? Because i cannot start 1 game and i think that is the problem. Thank you.

Starting a game problem should not be related to the PSU.

TDR problem could be a driver issue.
Did you upgrade any drivers or operating system recently?

Oh really ? Well, i had updated 2x my driver. What i noticed was that the last driver for the card is exactly the same driver as the one i had for my GT 8600. When i installed the latest driver, i got monitor problems at start up. This happened twice so i had to remove the videocard to be able to use my onboard video card to delete these drivers. So now i dont use the latest drivers and ATM i have an GT 440 gddr3 1gb with a PSU of 370 W and an 15 amperage on the 12v rail, while i need 22 at least for the card. So i bought a new gddr5 card and this PSU so i will then bring back the recently bought PSU and videocard. I am not sure why the latest drivers wouldnt work, but i guess its the PSU not having enough amperage ? I also use VGA->DVI cable. But the gddr5 has also the VGA connection unlike the gddr3, which has only DVI 2x.

I bought them few days back, but for a few more bucks i could get an PSU with enought amperage and for 5 euro more i could get the same videocard from gddr3 to gddr5. So i will return them and get these 2. But will all be fine with drivers and such when the delivery comes ?
