I just bought an Nvidia Geforce 550 Ti and I was wondering if my Dell power supply which is 375 watts and has two 12 volt rails that are 18 amps a piece is enough to power this card, a 65 watt Intel Core 2 Duo, 2x2gb Corsair xms 2 ram, 2 hard drives and a dvd optical drive.

65w/12 is 5.444444 amps. so it should be fine on one 12v rail.

Ok I am getting some major performance issues with this card, my cpu is only a e6300@ 1.86Ghz but there is no bottleneck going on and I cant manage to run games like Just Cause 2 or Saints Row The Third on the lowest settings and I dont know what the problem is and I figured it might be the power suply but im not sure so I would like anybodys opinion.

on the dell use cpu-z read the mb info..if it an intel chipset mb download the newest intel chipset drivers..then install and reboot. then go to nvidia web page and install the newest video drivers. the ones on the install cd are older. if the dell had an ati card before this you have to use a program called drive sweeper to remove all the drivers.. also how much ram the pc has in also going to effect your game play..most min game systems have 4g of ram.
