Can this this run a gigabyte 6850 0c Tags: Graphics Cards Power Supplies Gigabyte ATX Graphics Product Last response: February 20, 2012 12:29 AM in Graphics & Displays Share benjock February 19, 2012 3:59:20 AM can a Sun Pro 550W ATX power supply run a gigabyte 6850 oc More about : this run gigabyte 6850 DM186 a c 179 U Graphics card a b ) Power supply February 19, 2012 4:56:13 AM To me that is a generic PSU and would not trust it at all even if it has the right amount of amps on the 12v rail you could later on have it fail and you could be out of a PC and everything in it. The 6850 OC'd will use more tha 117w and since you have only one rail and it is 17amps. It would run that card but we are not looking also how much your CPU and other hardwear is using. Bottom line is it will run the card. But for how long and what will it do to your rig if something should go wrong. Look for brands like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and XFX PSU's. A good 500w should do the trick I have added two links to newegg. I do wish you the best on this and good luck. http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=5327... http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/855479 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... esrever a c 91 U Graphics card a b ) Power supply February 19, 2012 4:57:43 AM It will work but it might not work for long.
