Exclamation Enough Power??

256MB Leadtek 8600GT
That's the GPU my brother wants. He has a 350W PSU. Will that run ok? Or fry his system?

Nope, Not a chance. I run a 8800 and I needed a 600W one.

Whats the other spec on it?

Get one of the more experienced to check, but I doubt it very much.

I have never heard of EZcool....get a 400-450w trusted brand and it will work.

I would go above 600W personally.

Try This


That would be better if you have the money.

You don't need a 600w power supply, just to run an 8600GT. It's not even a power hungry card. Get this:
400W FSP ATX-400PNF pPFC PSU ATX 2.01 ATX12V upto 85&#37; Eff' PCI-E SATA Ready
