Just one simple question here.

I just bought a Gamer Power 562D3 gaming desktop from Newegg.com and I was just wondering if it would run an Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ if I upgraded the power supply to 585 WATTS. I have both the GTX+ and the power supply (which is an Orion brand) just waiting in my closet to be used.

LINK TO THE SPECS OF MY NEW DESKTOP:

LINK TO SPECS OF MY 9800 GTX+ VS THE AMD RADEON 6670 THAT COMES WITH IT:

If the Gamer Power 562D3 computer cannot not be upgraded like this, please explain.

Yes you can, since you have both, then go for it. You should be able to replace the PSU in your computer. Just make sure your PSU has the amps to push the 9800 GTX+

What are the amps on the 12V rail for that PSU?

The 9800GTX should be much better than the 6670.

Thats not how it works;

Please google your PSU model number/brand and paste the specs here:

#1 How many rails?
For your card id recommend around 32 amps minimum. If you have a SINGLE 12v rail, simply divide 585watts by 12v = 48 amps. Should be sufficient, thought that card draws considerate power.

However many cheap brand PSU's dotn come with a single rail and thats where the catch is, you will end up having ~24 amps which will bottleneck your card.

Watts themselves are irrelevant as I could have a 850watt PSU that performs much much worse than a 650watt PSU.

it says that my Orion HP 585D power supply has TWO 12v rails. so 585 watts divided by 6? is that right and is this PSU good or bad?

get the 6670, it's a lot better than a 9800 gtx. Btw, stop using that site to compare hardware, it's so terrible and doesn't represent that actual performance in games.

stop writing bullshit comments to waste my time. the computer i just bought already comes with the 6670, and no, it is definitely not better than the 9800
