Hi,

I've been having problems with my graphics card so I had this PSU recommended:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Antec 520w Continuous Power, 40a on a single +12v rail.

My card is a GTS 450 and is plugged in with a six-pin connector.

I'm having freezing problems - main thread for that here: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/352274-15-freezing

Should this PSU be able to run the card adequately?
I also have an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU which at peak takes about 200w so I think it should be okay?

Easily
Would take a hell of an overclock for a Q6600 to get anywhere near 200 watts, it's got a TDP of 130 watts and you can't overclock it

Saw your other thread, could have asked this there

delluser1,
thanks for the reply, that relaxed me a little. I must've found the wattage for the CPU from an incorrect source then.

I created another thread because I felt this was different from the other thread - I am asking another question. It would also not need anyone to feel the need to read through the whole description before answering. Sorry.
