    Hi

    A decent 400W would do, though something like an Enermax 500W would be better. What PSU will you being running it with or are you looking to buy a new one?

    Hi, I didn't want to start a new topic since there's this one already concerning a PSU for Gainward 7800GS AGP.

    I still don't quite get what PSU to get, given I need one, as with all those amp requirements and whatnot I am lost. Let alone asking myself whether I need a new PSU or not. I currently have Chieftec 360W that came with the case by default. It has 18 amps on +12V rail. My current system specs: MSI Neo2 Platinum, A64 3200+, 1,5GB RAM, 9800Pro, 2 Maxtor HDDs (SATA and ATA), 1 old DVDrom which I rarely use and floopy. Basically more power than enough to keep my setup running.

    The system is failry new to my standards and it delivers (9800Pro is older though), but with upcoming new games I want a new AGP card only. Upgrading to PCI-e is not an option for me. And I believe getting this new 7800GS from Gainward should be enough for a couple of years to go.

    So, would my currrent PSU be enough or should I upgrade it and if so which would be a good 400W PSU, as I really wouldn't need more.

    Thanks in advance.

    Impossible to say really. If you have a multimeter to hand you could buy the Gainward card and then see how the PSU rails hold up, but if you'll be relying on MBM5 or any other software for readings i'd be cautious as they're never accurate. Basically if you have some way of properly determining if your old PSU is handling the load of the new card ok you should do so. You'd need to check:
    • The rails for the first few hours using either a multimeter or software such as MBM5 while running something like 3D Mark and Prime95. Repeat a week later just to make sure.
    • keep an eye on the PSU's exhaust fan temps. Easiest way is to put your hand behind the PSU fan before the GPU upgrade, and after. If its: a) much hotter than before, or b) the fan is rotating much faster than before, then keep a note.
    At this stage, if the rails are behaving as they should, and the power supply isn't running vastly hotter, or the fan is pushing much more air to cope with the upgrade then i'd imagine you would be fine. But if the rails are shakey, or the PSU is running hotter i'd recommend a PSU upgrade. Your system may work fine like this but 3 months, 6, months, a year down the line the PSU might just clonk out because of how hard its been pushed and it may take your entire PC with it.

    I'm only inclined to recommend PSU's I've tested, so those would be either the Enermax Noisetaker 485W at around £50 or the Seasonic S12 430W at £58. Both of these PSU's are easily worth there price tag.
