Hey guys,

I have a BFG BFG Tech GS-550 550W and was wondering if I will be able to run my GTX 550 Ti. The requirement for the graphics card says I need 24amps on the 12V rail. I only have 18amps on the 12V but its dual 12vs with 18amps on each. Would this be an issue?

This is my PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
More details about the PSU can be found here: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=BFGR550WGSPSU-R

Your PSU has two 12V rails each capable of providing 18A for a maximum of 432W...you're good to go electrically.

It'll be more than enough. nVidia recommends a 400 watt PSU for that card
