    sorry i know there are alot of PSU threads going right now, but i diddnt want to post an off topic question on them. so what are the 12v amp requirements for a ATI 16xx card? cause my oldy but goody, 9600XT just died and is being RMA'd and from what i have heard i will be getting a 16xx card as the replacement. and i am wondering if i will need to upgrade my current PSU with i believe 16a on the 12v rail. current PSU in "specs" thanks in advance. :toast:

    I don't think x16xx is power hunger graphic card. I am using 220w power supply with x1600pro AGP 512MB and it run well.

    The X1600 cards are not power hungry in anyway.
    But the X1650XT/GT take more power than others.
