Clear all

mhm, new computer oppgrade...


Xeqtr is right, the CPU will NOT bottleneck the GPU and 520W is by far enough.

here is a picture that show the energy consumption of some cards (the wattage is for the whole system except the monitor) during a round in 3DMark Vantage
Red = load
Yellow = idle

the testrig had the flowing specs:

Intel Core i7 950 3,06 GHz @ 3,8 GHz (200 × 19)
Asus P6T6 WS Revolution
6 GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator PC12800 (1600 MHz 8-8-8-24)
Cooler Master Real Power 1 000 W
Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500 GB SATA


Well that made things clearer didn't it ?

And please don't give people "help" if you seriously don't know what you are talking about... but of course its not bad to have some extra wattage if you are planing to upgrade your system in a near future..
