Hi i recently bought a new graphics card: XpertVision 9800GT Sonic so i could play the latest games on my pc. It didn't come with a 6 pin supplementary Power Connector so i couldn't test it straight away and promptly ordered one off ebay. However it has come to my attention that the graphics minimum psu requirements are 450W or greater (with 12V current rating of 26A).

I thought my PSU was suitable enough for this since its 650W however on closer inspection the ratings for +12V1 is 23A Max and +12V2 is 23A Max. Does this mean i will be unable to run the graphics card?

The brand of my PSU is Winpower ATX-650L. If my PSU isn't suitable would this be a worthy replacement: 550W ATX Silent Neon PSU - 12cm Fan 4x Molex 1x SATA

I cant find the output on the one you suggested as a replacement, but the one you have now has 46 volts combined between the two 12v rails and should work just fine for that particular card, unless you have a truckload of other peripherals.

Thanks so much for the quick response. I don't have a shedload of other stuff just 2 hard drives and a dvd writer. So all together i don't think my systems draws that much power anyway. Is there some way i could workout the total amount of Watts my pc draws? Spec below:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5K-E (LGA775)
2.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz (corsair)

a power supply calculator like neweggs will give you a general idea, though I imagine you should be just fine with the PSU you have.
