Asus CM1831 Power Supply Recommendations

Hello, I just recently bought an Asus CM1831 from Newegg, I was wondering if there were any PSU's you guys would recommend for my system.
P.S. I'm trying to run an Zotac Nvidia GT630 Synergy Edition.

Also am I able to run the card on the system anyways?
Thanks in advance!

    Hi - why do you want change PSU's and what is your budget?

    Tom

    Yes - you should be able to run it on the system you already have.

    Only caveat is the quality of the PSU, it has enough wattage if it meets the
    sys specs.
  2. Thanks for the quick reply!
    I wanted to change the PSU if the computer couldn't handle the GT630 right now with it's current PSU.
    If it can't, then my price range is $0-$100

    Hi - the card mfg recommends 300w (which is what you have) and they
    usually build in a cushion in their power requirements.

    If you need to buy a PSU, you won't need to spend anywhere near $100.
    Should the need arise you will be able to get a quality unit in the $50
    range, maybe a little less or a little more depending on the deals & rebates at the time.

  4. Thank you so much Tom, I was just wondering if it would because of the power on the +12V rail, the box says that you need a minimum 12V current rating of 20A. Here is a picture of the power supply itself.

    Someone told me that it only has 18A on it's 12V rail, are they correct?

    Thanks once again!

    They are correct, your PSU has 18a (combined) on the +12v rails.
    That card should run on it anyways, but I personally wouldn't do it.
    In fact that's exactly what I did with my sys, took out the PSU
    and repl it with a quality unit. A quality 400w unit is more than
    capable.

    Tom
  6. Thank you very much for the info.
    Can you recommend me a PSU that would be good for my system (400W-500W)?
    Thanks!

    Some PSU's for you to consider:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026 nets to $36 after mir

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371045 nets to $46

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207018 nets to $49
  8. I might choose the XFX PSU. This will definitely run the GT630 right?

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    They all will - and I think the XFX (Seasonic built) is the best of the three
  10. Okay, thanks for all your help! I really appreciate it.
