Bought a comp about 18 month ago and from the start only a select few games would crash, and it would be a complete hard lock and have to reboot.
Just cracked open the case, and the psu I have:
-running a 9600gt, 3 fans, 500gb sata hd, dvd drive, and quad core is:
Allied Power Supply [AL-8500BTX] 500w
Under the voltage section I can see:
+3.3v - 22a
+5v - 6a
+12v1 - 15a
But then under current section, I see:
+12bv2 = 16a
Does that mean there are two rails, I can't see them?
Any way, thiis power supply clearly says for p4 - should it power a quad core AND a 9600gt and what I mentioned above?
I just bought this which has a single, 52a rail and well enough power apparently (in another thread):
Thoughts? Will that be up to it?
