View Full Version : PSU good enough?
I have this PSU: Enermax EG465P-VE
...and i wonder if anyone knows if it´s powerful enough for a system like this:
Corsair Twin2x 2048 6400c5
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Geforce 7950 GX2
Maxtor 200gb IDE hd
Philips DVD burner

How old is it? I've been running that model (431W) or at least I think it was the same model (EG-465P-VE right? or something like that) with this setup:
Xp-M @ 2.4ghz
2 optical drives
many fans, leds
2 sticks of ram
+ some other crap
According to extreme outervision site, power needed for that computer with all components in 100% use is 301W. With the CPU overclocked to 3.0ghz and GPU overclocked a bit, 360W, assuming no other PCI cards or fan controllers or fans or leds. Should be ok. Do look at the amperage on +12V rail. It should like 26-30 for a video card like that. Maybe even more for a 7950gx2.
Edit: must be a newer 465 model than the one I have. It's 460W and 33A on the +12V. It will run that e6600 and 7950gx2 fine and you should also be able to overclock no problemo.
Thanks for your reply Mustang!
Yeah, it says 33A on the 12v so maybe i´m good to go then :)

Yes that power supply is plenty if you are just running one 7950GX2.
