GTX280/power suppy match up?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Will this PSU: http://www.coolermaster.com/products/pr ... 22&id=2573 be fine with a single GTX280? It's just this 12V rail having enough amps thing is really winding me up now, I mean this thing has like 6 of em but there so low and nvidia recommends 40A min? Is it one 40A or as many rails as you like, as long as they add up to 40? Nvidia I don't need this crystal maze, ok!

GTX280 peaks around 180W (15A), then 80W for old hot Q6600 quad core and 50W for rest so we're at little above 300W peak draw.

Please someone, give us a power supply to go for. Someone else out there must already be running a GTX 280 and be able to recommend one? I have a fair bit of computing knowledge but am not confident enough to make my own unguided decision, not at these prices! all I want is a psu that has enough power to drive the GTX 280 without being needlessly over rated, or flashy; I don't want one with flashing lights or silly animé of half naked woman emblazoned on all four sides, just the cheapest one that will do the job.
