Default Re: can I use a 430 watts PSU for GTX 460?

The GTX 460 draws around 13.5 amps or 160 watts just by it self on the 12v rail,according to nvidia and then you have to add what the rest of your system that draws on the 12v rail,Like your CPU ,DVD dives ,harddrives and fans .The 8800GT draws around 9 amps or 105 watts on the 12v rail.What kind of power supply do you have and how many amps does it put out on the 12v rail.
