Hi, so basically i have a switching creation 600 watts PSU with a DEDICATED 6 PIN PCI-E power connector and i want to know if an asus gtx 550 ti will be able to run on it...Also the most important thing is that it has 10amps on the 12v rail and i know this is little. Most people are telling me the psu is good as long as it has a 6 pin power connector.The graphic card vendor even inspected my psu and guaranteed me that it would work even with the GPU stressed and funtioning at max!I'm puzzled ;0 My question to you all is if the psu was that bad what THE HELL WOULD IT HAVE A 6 PIN connector! THis would defeat the purpose of having 10 amps on the 12v rail...sorry i'm no expert in power supplies and graphic stuffs but i REALLY want to know this. ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED!THANKS!

What kind of PSU that has 600W has 10a on the 12V rail? I can't seem to find the specs of the power supply anywhere on the internet.

10a is definitely not going to run a 550Ti. It might not even run a computer. I thought tha A-Power power supply I had was bad, but this is a whole new threshold.

:lol:  yeah mate, you've probably misread.
Do NOT trust a PC vendor! A honest vendor is quite rare. :D 
Anyways, A 550Ti would require a +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater, with one 6-pin PCIe connector.

See if you can get a PSU from a reputable/reliable/popular brands like Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic...etc.
