|Im looking at buying a video card for my pc.|
The card I have set my eye on is PNY GeForce 7900 GTX 512mb. PNY website recommends a power supply with 12v 22A rating for this card.
I have this http://www.xpcgear.com/s500v20bf.html power supply sitting in my mother-in-laws pc, will it be enough to run the above card and my system. This supply has 12v1 16A and 12v2 17A. Does it mean that together its 33A supply?
I have a Lenovo ThinkCenter 8811 which currently has a 310 watt supply installed. If the above supply is ok for this card I will swap supplies with her.
