GTS 450 Issue, Power Supply bad?
Dec 8, 2011, 5:25 PM
I just built a new computer.
Gigabyte GA-880GM-DH2 motherboard
AMD Phenom II 1055t 6 core.
8 GB Corsair Vengance.
Seagate Baracude 750 GB sata HD.
Above is all the new stuff.
I had a 550w Power supply laying around, Mad Dog 550WPS. I figured its 550W PS and I should be okay, however I think this is the issue.
Sometimes Computer will boot with card in sometimes not. I tried to Run passmark burn in test and I lose video immediately.
Same test works good with my old 7600GS card in.
The GTS 450 runs flawlessly in my old AMD 5000+ system still. Even ran passmark burn in test on that one and it works good.
What I have concluded is that the 550W mad dog PSU is a not cutting it, and I need to get a new PSU from a proven MFG.
Suggestions on good 600-750w PSU that I can get for under $100. Thanks.

Or this one:
The Antex rolli59 suggested is pretty good, but Seasonic makes some of the best products in the business.
