Cool tool - says I need 425W. Doesn't mention the peak rail loads (needed for the X1900XTX, from what I understand).

These tools are not very useful since they don't take many other factors into account and they never take efficiency into account.

Only thing I'd want to add to that tool is the required 12 volt rail strength, that's a major factor when it comes to buying a new PSU. It says I need 272W, my 430W TT has me covered :D. If I were to upgrade to an X1900XT, it says I'd need 313W and doesn't mention anything about the necessary rails. Just out of curiosity, think I could run an X1900XT on a system like mine (18A on the 12 volt rail) ?

280w I got 420w with 32 amps on my duel rail.

307w (cpu @ 85%) 326w (cpu @ 100%) if I got my conroe system... Wounder if my psu would hold up if I used it in a conroe system for 4 months? I need to make cuts where I can imos (not the best place to make cuts eh but since I already have this psu.) Nope 336watts at 80% my psu will put out, better get a new one.

18 amps I think you need more for the xt, my 1900gt recomends 30 amps.

Would you be so kind and provide more details on many other factors?

btw, Amperes per rails - work in progress ;)

I like people who register just to spam a linky to their site/program/etc. However:

390W for my old system. And 305 for my new setup, it's RAM isn't listed though, should add another 10-15W (Selected DDR2) Both are at stock speeds and 100% utilization. As for the new system I took a 7900GT though I'm not 100% sure yet that I'm buying that.

I expected both systems to waste more energy...

weird that my system specs dropdown thing isnt coming up.

anyway, ive got athlon x2 +3800, 2 gigs ddr400, radeon xpress200 mobo, x1800xt (625/750)overclocked to 675/792, a dvd burner, 160 gig segate barracuda drive and a 550 watt coolmax psu which is currently dieing.

upgrades coming in are the xpress 3200 mobo (for true crossfire and a far superior 939 mobo) and 700 watt ocz psu for when i get my second ati card.
i doubt that your your stem would consume 500w :twitch:

(you have to check it dor other ppl to see it in usercp ;)
