I'm considering upgrading my graphics card. I don't really use my computer much for gaming but I want something that provides dual DVI support for my job and, maybe, plays Civ 4 :-P
Here's the card I'm considering buying:
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
Card Requirements: 350 Watt PSU with +12v rating of 18 amps
My current power supply:
It actually doesn't list any max amperage or any other information, really.
Characterizing based on the newegg PSU calculator, I have
Intel Core Duo 3.00ghz
Harddisk - 7,200 RPM
according to the newegg calculator, even adding this graphics card I'd only need a 282 watt system (308 watt if it turns out I have a high-end motherboard which I doubt).
But my power supply sticker has left me wondering - I'm just not sure how to figure out whether my amp rating is high enough, since it's a dual rail 14V setup.
Thank you all in advance for your thoughts.
