I was wondering how much amps does the athlon 64 3200 and 3400 need. and also how many amps do the powercolor 9600 need. thanks More about : amps required athlon64 3400 gothitbycar November 19, 2004 7:29:03 PM If by amps you mean wattage then get at least a good quality 350W powersupply (Antec, Fortron, etc.) Drop the powercolor 9600 if you can, don't expect to game with it. ----------------------- oh, its a nice day. TO EAT CHILDREN!!! jammydodger November 19, 2004 7:45:01 PM I think (and dont quote me on this) that the Athlon64's use about 90watts. Divide this by the number of volts it uses (dont know this off the top of my head, I think the XP's use 1.6) to find out the number of amps it draws.

It even beats the 9800 Pro.
