[QUOTE=lightner;2581092]but neways wondering i have a 350 psu unit in the workshop downstairs would that be big enuff?[/QUOTE]
Very doubtful that PS would work as this is what you will most likely see with just about any gaming video card
[B]Minimum 450W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 24A) [/B] and I just don’t
think a 350 watt PS is going to make it at all.
When buying a new PS [B][U]PLEASE[/U][/B] [B]do not [/B]and I repeat [B]do not [/B]buy some cheap no name PS stick with a good name
brand like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Ultra, even if you can get say a 600 or 700 watt no name for less than say a
430 to 500 watt name brand PS. Those no name brands about 99.9% of them put out less power than what they
advertise so a 700 watt no name could have less true power than your little old 350 watt has.
Here are a few safe bets for PS’s
CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 CMPSU-430CX 430W ATX12V Active PFC Power Supply even though it says it is a
430 watt PS it has enough power on the +12v rail
CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 (CMPSU-600CX) 600W ATX12V v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply
Ultra X4 500-Watt Modular Power Supply yeah it is a little bit more expensive than some of the other 500watt
PS’s but it has modular connectors and it carries a Lifetime Warranty w/ Registration.
I’m running the 750 watt version of it and it has done great so far with very stable voltages and dead quite with
no noticeable fan noise from it.
