I have checked on the newegg power calculator and says i need 550 wats but nothing about amps...
i do not want to burn the card out or anything.. But ive been told on another forum that to less amps will blow the card... This is what ive been told
" Who knows. On good units the rails are labeled. But on a trash unit its hard to tell. Its probably not a 4 rail supply anyways, those are expensive to make. Its probably 1 rail that splits up into "4"
Your logic is good, but on a bad supply it doesn't work like that. And 400w is the maximum power you can draw from each "34amp" rail. But again, its not real 34amp rails. That would mean you have 136a of 12v power, which is 1600w of power. Good luck drawing 1600w safely from it "
Here is my power supply rating
+3.3V - 24A
+5V - 30A
+12V 1 - 34A
+12V 2 - 34A
+12V 3 - 34A
+12V 4 - 34A
