So a PCI-E 1.0 GFX card with a 6-pin power connector attached can draw up to 150W max, with a dual card setup able to draw up to 300W max between There's only so much you can draw from your power socket!

Pics now working in 2nd post. It uses one 8-pin connector (or 6-pin + 2-pin).$340http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OQUMGM0/?tag=pcpapi-20http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125706http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1096665-REG/gigabyte_gv_n970ixoc_4gd_gtx_970_mini_itx.htmlhttp://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=GA-970IXOC&c=CJhttp://www.microcenter.com/product/441042/GeForce_GTX_970_Overclocked_4GB_GDDR5_Video_Card**Edit- You could also just get a regular 970, I just like the smaller one because it fits any case. No, because as soon as a part is stressed by something I do, it could easily jump way beyond the PSU specification. #6 XabanakFanatik, Apr 9, 2016 tortillasoup Golden Member http://archive.atomicmpc.com.au/forums.asp?s=2&c=7&t=9354 Advertisements do not imply our endorsement of that product or service.

You have two 6/8 pins left from the other end of the cable so one would go into the 6pin on the GPU and the 8pin into the other slot.You can It would be even better if the card had more than 1 Gigabyte of video ram and or GDDR5 memory.

So you should take the total wattage rating on a power supply with a grain of salt. https://tapatalk.com/topic/21761-anandtech-forums/2469692-very-low-power-consumption-150w-max-on-gaming-pc help me please Power Consumption: up to 150W Discussion in 'Hardware' started by jacobhoh, Jan 27, 2016. If I owned Seasonic, I'd rather people bought 1200w Platinum units instead of 500w Bronze units. #4 UsandThem, Apr 8, 2016 Dasa2 Member Joined: Nov 22, 2014 Messages: 197 Likes The regular sized cards take 2x 6-pin, but the EVGA one comes with adapters that work off molex connectors.

Of course all this depends on your CPU and other components which have to share the available power, which is another section on its own! This is the key - the meter is not reading something correctly here. Stay logged in Sign up now! AMDs route is less accurate but isn't application specific and thus a bit more elegant a solution.

Just because u use 300wts doesn't mean a 350wt PSU is best for u. @ 300wt system usage, a 600wt PSU would provide you with the best power efficiency.Click to expand... Time will tell. See links at the end of this post for certified PSUs. Did you read the whole article?

The above statement means the graphics card is "Power hungry" and requires a "dedicated" DIRECT CONNECTION from the PSU to the graphics card.

a 60w incandescent bulb will have a power factor close to 1 which makes it very easy for a cheap power meter to get a accurate reading a cheap psu or

So make sure your PSU is designed correctly and can supply the correct amount of amps on the required rails. That one was $20 - I'd say it's useless to measure the power draw of a PC. By adding the four-pin Molex connections, manufacturers extended the life of AGP cards as each supplied 6.5A or 110.5W from these right angle connections (12V + 5V or 17V x 6.5A Thanks and Best Regards,MSI Technical Support TeamHi James,Thank you for purchasing Seasonic!It is best to use 2x separate PCIe cables for your GTX970.Each cable providing power to each single PCIe power

solved is a single 6+2 pin pcie power enough for a new graphics card My power supply only has 1x6+2 pin PCI-E connector and i want to put a 7870 in If I owned Intel, I'd rather more people bought more 5930k CPUs instead of Pentium G4400 CPUs. This is mainly due to smaller process technologies and more efficient parts on the PCB that's used with each new generation. Here are a few; http://www.guru3d.co...-point-of-view/ http://www.tweaktown...card/index.html http://www.thetechlo...eme-Video-Card/ All of the reviews I've looked at also report power use similar to the 9600gt.

You will find R9 280x graphics cards with the same setup (1x 6 pin, 1x 8 pin) and these have been found to draw up to 300w when overclocked (250w tdp)The

Antec, Silverstone, Enermax and OCZ are generally quite reliable PSU's. To stay out of trouble you keep the power supply under 50% of it's maximum output.For me I use a P3 Watt meter on the system to find it's total draw.

Back to top Page 1 of 6 1 2 3 Next » Back to Processors, Motherboards & Memory 0 user(s) are reading this topic 0 members, 0 guests, 0 anonymous users I can tell you if you're trying to upgrade a dell or HP or any other OEM branded pc you most likely will need to buy a bigger PSU as well.

Multi card configs however show quite a marked increase in consumption. This is probably done mostly to cater for OEM requirements. So the more data there is the higher the quality rating. Generally something with 34 amps on the 12 volt rails.

Example HERE. -------------------------------------------------- GFX Card Comparison Table -------------------------------------------------- These graphs are an attempt to show GFX card power consumption, not what the recommended PSU requirements are, but rather the actual draw Nothing older than the 300 series. Peak 3D consumtion - should be considered an unlikely and rare case for a GPU. The graphs show peak 3D (unlikely under normal use), typical 3D, 2D and idle power draw where possible.

For example a HD4850 1GB card with a 3rd party designed board consumes 7.6W & 19.2W less than the reference 512MB design at idle & 3D in modes respectively even though But there are many other brands that will do the job. Please try the request again.
