Which PSU for 8800GT?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm thinking of buying a nVidia 8800GT but has been told my 450w PSU wouldn't be up to the job, so I'm thinking of buying a new Corsair PSU because it's getting a lot of rave reviews! :biggrin:


My question is, which PSU should I go for - the HX520w or HX620w?


My PC is not overclocked, and its set-up as follow:



XP Home Edition (SP2)

ASUS P5LD2 SE motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 processors

one 320gb hard drive

one DVD-RW


one Media Card reader

6 USB ports (3 currently in use)

Integrated 6 channel (5.1) audio


and of course the 7600GS which I want to replace with 8800GT. :cool:



Any advice would be much appreciated

Many thanks for your reply, RAM GUY


It's very unlikely that I will be adding a second video card in future, so I will go with HX520w PSU.


Also cheers for the link to the PSU finder (very handy!) - and it came up with the same answer as yours.
