Choosing correct psu for 9800gt

February 20, 2010 at 16:36:21
Specs: Windows Vista
Ok so i am currently running 9400gt PNY Nvidia graphics card. And i have brought the PNY Nvidia9800gt Graphics card
I want to choose a new power supply unit to run the 9800gt on becuase i belive my current one isnt up to the job.

So i was wondering if this power supply unit is good enough to run it.

You didn't list the specs to your current PSU for comparison?

The one you listed has no specs listed, all it says is 500W & lists a couple of plug types. The +12v rail spec is what's important.

Have a look at how the specs are listed for the following PSU...that's the info you need to look at:

Yeah, the psu jam mentioned will do the perfect job. 9800gt require single +12v rail @26 and the corsair psu has single +12v rail @30.

Ya u must plug 6 Connector. why? Pci-e x16 slot can't provide enough power to run 9800gt, that's why it needs some xtra power from psu to run well.

before replacing graphic card, first make sure to un-install the graphic card or igp driver.
