    there are 2 possibilities:

    1.They are from different manufacturers and the design/cooling system is different.

    2.Sometimes the same manufacturer do the same card with different cooling, since they both have the same clockspeed/memory etc, i assume they are from different brands, are they?

    no they are identical cards, both ment to be asus gtx 550ti top
  11. PSU is coolmax cxi-500b
  12. Sorry but what is the video card? i've read some peoples saying that this psu could not handle even 386watts but i'm not sure if that was real (internet), if your graphics card requires more than that this kind of problem could be hapening, this kind of problem really looks like psu problem, but there is also the chance of beign the video card, if you can try it with another PSU otherwise return the card, and if the second one didn't work properly you know what the problem is...

    It is recommended to use Active PFC units, they normally are safer;
  13. gtx 550 ti

    Tried playing the old republic again today and i cant even get the video settings to go back to high like yesterday, i think its the card
  14. Best answer
    Coolmax, there is your problem.
  15. yeah i see that now, amperage is too low. Any reccomendation on a new psu preferably <$100?
  16. Corsair TX650W, great power supply. You can power 2 550ti's, 2 560ti's, or 1 580.
