View Full Version : NV40 power requirements

05-03-04, 12:54 PM
I know from reading several NV40 previews, that Nvidia was recommending a 480w power supply for the NV40.

Has anyone seen any reviews where they actually state what PSU they DID use?

I've got an Enermax 465w PSU now and I'm hoping it will be enough should I decide to go with Nv40 this round.

It should be more than enough as Brian Evans of 3DGPU got his working in a SFF PC system and they don't exactly use powerhouse PSUs.

465w is more then enough besides thats for s 6800 Ultra. You really don't think theres alot of diffrence between 15w?

480w is a safety measure, not an absolute. you can use less watts at your own risk

It all depends on especially how many power hungry harddrives you got. I know people having trouble with 550 W PSU:s on 9800XT or 5950U based systems...
