Thread: Friend got GTX 465 GC as well but a diff PSU

    Friend got GTX 465 GC as well but a diff PSU

    He got the PNY GeForce GTX 465 for his computer but when he tried to get the same PSU I had, the 750w from Thermaltake, they didn't have it and gave him a 700w OCZ ModXStream-PRO PSU, http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...o_power_supply, and said that would supply him with the power needed for one GTX 465

    So I figured I would ask more knowledgeable people and see if that would just work or if it doesn't work at all?!

    It should be. 25 amps on each 12v rail and at max power usage the card needs 200 watts, that leaves 500 watts for the rest of the system.

    Should Work

    I have both Power Supplies your asking about in two different machines and I have't had a problem with either of them. I like the Thermaltake supply a bit more, (but thats has to do with fan placement) but the specs are so close unless your running a Triple SLI rig you shouldn't have any problems. Post the system Specs you probalby aren't running much over 400W with a single GPU.

    A quality 500w would prolly suffice, so he should be good.
