Default Sparkle Power SPI ATX-400PN 400W ATX12V

8800 GT needs 26a on the 12v or so it says.

Would this power supply -> http://www.ncix.com/search/?q=17076&...ice=Max.+Price

Running ONLY the video card be enough?

Yes or no.

Default

So you mean only the videocard, as in using this PSU in conjunction with another?

Correct. I'll use my 850 until I can get a replacement or something sorted out and use the sparkle for just the video card.

A website states 450w with 30a but thats with an entire system so I should assume only used with the video card it should be fine right?
