  1. I am not sure on the PSU i have because it doesn't say ANYWHERE on it or around it.
    So anyway, i am looking to purchase the HD2600XT, i would like to know which power supply unit would be sutible for this?

    Some form of a 500+ watt psu with 18amp on each 12v rail. I would say you could go as low as 450 but there are few psu's with high amperage at that low of wattage.

    Thanks so much this is a jeantech 500w psu that can be purchased on the pc world site,

    +12V1 +12V2
    15A 18A

    ????

    and would this be sutible for pretty much all graphics cards?

    because i read the reviews for that other one and they don't impress me much.

    Thanks again for the help.

    the PSU is the heart of a computer. if it quits the whole computer quits and lot of the time it can take other parts with it, what porsche911r is advising is a good unit and should be thought over very much.
