I got my spankin new X1950XTX in the mail today sadly only to find it's pushing my power supply out the window
. Requiring 30 amps on a 12v rail is a little more than my puny 17amp rail can dish out.....
I loaded up my rig thinking it was going fine, but it restarts into a black death after the Windows loading screen.........
Can anyone tell me whether there is some way around this, and if not maybe a good 600 Watter or so that can handle all I have and maybe a future upgrade or two? Somethin with a decent rep and at least a 30amp 12v rail or two (550 or lower should be fine as long as they have real nice 12v's[30amps or higher]). I would do it myself, but know nothing about power supplies(other than what I learned today) nor how to tell the good ones from the bad and the ugly.....
My specs - :beard:
AMD 3700+ (2.2Ghz)
2Gb (4x512) Corsair XMS, DDR400 PC3200
Sapphire X1950XTX (2Ghz memory clock XD )
EVGA nForce 4 SLI mobo
300Gb Maxtor HDD
UltraX2 550W PSU
All the other gizmo's as well - 2 smaller hdd's, 2 DVD-RW's, army of fans, and 2 Cold Cathodes.
ANY help would be much appreciated, till then I can't touch my oh so very sweet new card......
