View Full Version : Hiper 580W type-R and 8800 GTS

I'm having some trouble deterermining the actual power reqs of an 8800 GTS card. I know it says 400W 26A PSU, but thats for the entire system I assume.

I have a Hiper 580W type-R

Dual rail 12V 20A/18A however only 380W max on the 12 rails.
I also notice that the wires only handle approx 6.5A

Will this be enough for a GTS, or should I start looking for another PSU?
Does anyone know the actual W/A reqs for ONLY the card?

I would think that should be plenty to run a 8800GTS.

I run a Dual 12v/18A rails PSU on a Opteron 165 / 8800GTX so my guess is if the psu is any good then it will run. Mine is Enermax.

I have the same power supply, and Im using a 8800GTX without any problems.
