Re: Need help want to upgrade my graphics card
Open your computer case up, look at the side of the PSU, tell us the brand, and the information listed in the little table there.
(It may or may not have a table of information, voltages and amps?)
Otherwise the Watts + The brand name might be enough information.
I can't personally think of any diagnostic software off the top of my head that tells you specific voltages coming from the rails, but I know your BIOS should be able to?
Having only 8v~ on a 12v rail is indicative of a problem...
And it would affect a graphics card decision... As they use power from the 12v rails.
So it's important to find out what's going on exactly?
Maybe that program that's reporting the 8v~ is wrong?
