how much for a pair of gtx 280's in sli?
Taken from the XFX site. This is for a non-overclocked, standard edition:
Like jd suggested, I'd go with around 800W minimum.
I'm trying to decide between the 8800GT, the 9800GTX+, and the GTX 260. I have 2 12V rails running at 16A each. I know the PSU will run the 8800GT. Do you have the specs for the 9800GTX+ or the GTX 260? It's a 500W PSU.
Your PSU will support the GTX+, but not the GTX 260.
Specs taken from the eVGA site:
you will need a decent psu. A cheapass "1000w" psu may only do like ~25a, whereas a decent 800w may do 30a
Is the 9800GTX much different? I think I've decided on getting the 9800GTX or the 9800GTX+. I'll most likely buy it when prices drop a little more. And the fact that I only have one 6-pin PCIe connector shouldn't be a problem as long as I have 2 extra 4-pin molex for an adapter? Again 2 16A rails, 500W PSU.
How much for dual HD4870 X2's in crossfireX or whatever?
the 9800gt needs to be added.
There's alot of the new ones that's not on there.
Guys, Ceewi1 is busy. Which is understandable because he said he works like 14 hour days, give the guy a break.
I know I've neglected this list (and the others) over the recent months, I hope to have a bit more time available to update them in a few weeks.
For now, I've added single card figures for:
I'll get to the multi-card ones when I have a little more time available.
ceewi1, it may be worth adding something about the efficiency of any psu too, and the outcome of our dicussion re ATX standards....?
Just for the record, I'm running 8800GTS SLI on a 520watt PSU.
That's cheating though, that's a Corsair PSU you're running.
ceewi1. My computer is in my sig. My crappy psu has 420watts but the amperage is only 14, and i am running a 8400GS,which is rated at 20?So would i be able to upgrade to an 9500GT?or would an 9400GT be better?
Haha! It did surprise me though, guess it just shows what good build quality they are.
Yea Corsair's a really really well known brand. Not just in the modern day but back when I was young (I still am. ) and my dad was the one that had the interest in computers. Even he said Corsair's a really good brand but a bit expensive.
Besides, they offer LIFETIME warranty... not a lot of PSU makers do that...
Can we add the 4870x2?
