    Default Is Corsair VS 450 watt psu good enough for R7 260x?

    My TT 450 watt psu is not working anymore, I want to buy Corsair VS450 watt PSU for my r7 260x.

    Will it be enough? Any other model should I consider? How much amp in 12v rail should be sufficient for r7 260x + pentium dual core?

    Yeah Corsair VS450 works like a charm. Infact its an overkill for 260X. My entire system under full load has never drawn more than 200 Watts. Whereas VS450 can go up to 500 Watts.

    For your system 21amps at V12 should be enough (given you are not using other power hungry peripherals). VS450 supplies ~31-34 amps at V12

    I strongly disagree with you on this, vs450 is a pretty solid psu, low quality components but enough for normal use, stating that it can provide upto 500w is exaggeration and misleading too.

    And worst case, 12v rail can go down to 28A.

    Still vs450 will be enough for 260x

    Almost all hardware reviewers said that is was capable of drawing 500w. Fine they were wrong. How much power can it exactly draw then?

    Worst case can be that the PSU along with the entire system fried up. I said it supplies ~31-34 amps. Fine I might be wrong. You tell me how much it can supply under normal conditions?
