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!

10a on the 12v rail is beyond bad. what is the exact brand and model number?

hmm,i know! the brand is creation and presumably its a generic one...but the cables are very well wrapped with that nylon stuff that you find on good psu's. theres a 120mm fan that works pretty well and it has 6 satas, 6 molex and one 6 pin connectors. i'm surprised that it even has all those connectors! hmm, what do you think?

Multi 12v rails?? Please check and confirm.. It is not a good brand.. So If it actually has 10A, they wont label it.. :D

nylon sleeve wraps mean little, they are nice but you can stick a leather seat in a yogu. it's still a yugo

the real issue is the "creation" brand. I have never heard of it. the other issue is your 12v rail. It may be split and listed as 12v1, 12v2, 12v3, etc., but even 10a on the splits is very low. it's just too big of a red flag. can you post a pic of the PSU label for power output?

Buy a better PSU.. If you don't you will regret it. trust me. I did it to. Cheap PSU isn't cheap if you replace it 3-4 times

no the psu does not have multiple 12v rails (specs; 3.3@20a, 5@12a, 12@10 with peak power stated as 600 watts) and it is just as heavy as my 80+ cx600 running in ANOTHER system. my entire sys specs are; i5 2320, mobo ecs h61h2-m6, seagate baraccuda 500gb, asus dvd writer + 2 120mm led fans and they are running perfectly.
this s a very budget limited gaming( so to speak) PC.
