    Power Supply Question

    I am thinking of buying a new power supply (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153028) but I am not sure if it will be powerful enough for my video card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130066)
    Could anyone help me with this?

    Depending on what else you have in your system, you might be on the edge.... heck, even the people who purchased say don't hook to a high-end video card. That might tell you something... dunno.

    Anyway, looking at what other people purchased, I would go with something else.... but that is me... I would look to the future and purchase something with more than enough power to power my next rig as well, or if I wanted to upgrade my video card later. Normally, I spend an extra couple dollars on a purchase, but keep the power supply for a while... but that is me....




    Requirements
    Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply.
    (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 20 Amp Amps.)
    Minimum 500 Watt for SLI mode system.
    (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 28 Amp Amps.)
    An available 6 pin PCI-E power connector (hard drive power dongle to PCI-E 6 pin adapter included with card)
    Windows 10 to Linux and Mac OSX: I'm PARSECs better than you. Eat my dust!!!

    Thanks. I went with something more powerful. That one was supposed to be sooo quiet though.
