I posted this question directly to you since you are the man when it comes to power supplies :help:. I have a Antec NeoPower 550watt that came with my case and I want to know if it will run a 9600GT. It says it has 3 +12V rails 18amps a piece, but it looks like the 9600GT needs more (26 amps I believe) does it really need that much or is the manufacture erring on the side of caution.
I don't want to change this power supply, but if you think I'll have problems I'll have to rethink my upgrade path, by the way system in my Sig will probably change with the addition of 2 500GB SATA2 drives in raid while keeping my current drive for XP dual boot and a Asus DX sound card (onboard right now).
Thanks and looking forward to hear from you. And if any body else wants to chime in, go for it.
TopDogZero I can assure you and I believe Skymtl will attest to my comments here in saying that a Antec Neopower 550watt is more then sufficient for a 9600GT. I personally have the powersupply stated and I am currently running 2 x 8800GT videocards that are overclocked to their max potential and my system runs just fine.
