Hello fellow geeks,
I'm going to be installing a new graphic's card into my PC soon. I have my mind made up on a Geforce 6800XThttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...3-115-_-Product
I have already determined that it is compatible with my system except for the Wattage it will need. I hear their pretty demanding. I currently have a ATI
Radeon X800XT, so I should be able to, but I'm not for sure.
My PC is a Dell XPS Gen 4, or in others words "That's one huge b@%$#!" http://www.beststuff.com/images/articles/060605a5.jpg
My PSU is a dual rail and is underneath the full length of my computer's case. In the image you can see the line the separates the case from the PSU itself. I have taken it apart to see what the sticker read about the Watts it produces, but it looks like gibberish to me.
(This is what the sticker reads, nothing is my personal statement)Dell Inc.
Combined +5 & +3.3V Output power small not exceed 240W
Max combined output channel current #12.V_A & 12_B
Outputs IS 32A
I think its +12 17amps from the +12_~17.0A
but since it dual rail, idk exactly how that works.
And also, I don't have any separate power cords going to my current card would I need one for that Geforce 6800GT. I noticed the pin connectors on the top. My current card doesn't have that.
I hope I wasn't too confusing, and thanks for your time and help The miz
