The minimum power supply listed on the Nvidia website is a 400W. However, I've never heard of "powerlogic" and I don't think it will be powerful enough. What brand is the 500W PSU?

Can you check on the side of the PSUs? There should be a sticker with specs on it. I need to know how many amps they have on the +12V rail.

Yeah, that's it. Unfortunately, they are both too weak to run the card. I suggest getting something better like Seasonic ot Corsair. Do you have a set budget?

A GTS 450 only needs a quality 400 watt power supply. The bad news is neither of the power supplies you listed are good at all.

Any 400 watt or higher power supply from Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ or Antec would be fine for your computer.

If you don't live in the US there may be other brands available to you that I did not list and are still very good. If there is a website you buy from I will be glad to look.

The only bad opinion I read about the corsair was that it had a blue LED on its front. Otherwise, a lot of people seem happy with it and it should have enough power for the GTS 450.

what about this

2-ICute ATX-550W



I would avoid Coolermaster and Thermaltake. Both companies have great cases and cooling accessories but neither should be in the power supply business. The Coolermaster should work if it's all you can get but it's not what I would call a quality unit like the brands I listed above.

ICute is trash.

Actually, the Cooler Master's normal operating power is 550W. Max is 660. Which is good in my opinion, it's not one of those ripoffs that are listed as 500 but can only produce 350.

You got that off their website right? And you believe it?

Here is the only important part. 360 watts available on the 12v rail for 30 amps on the 12v rail.

Any of the brands I named above would call this a 400w power supply.


Also this model is discontinued here in the US and is a design from the Pentium 4 days. Even when it was new it was a typical Coolermaster power supply though. Here it fails in load testing in a Tom's Hardware review.
