Power Requirement for 7600GS?

Q: Power Requirement for 7600GS?

My parents' video card is not cutting it. Since I am not going to change the power supply (it's technically not my computer), so I am trying to work with Sony's Generic 300Watt (18A on 2 +12V Rails). I see that on the 7600GS, it has a power requirement of 300Watts. I was just wondering if it is wise to purchase a card that requires the amound of power I have. Thanks for any feedback :wave: ! Happy holidays!

Preferred Solution: Power Requirement for 7600GS?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It'll depend on how much other hardware is in that system, but there is a good chance it will work. No way to be certain until you pop it in, but my guess is, you'll be good.

Hi everybody,

For the last several days, I've been doing a lot of research about whether my power supply can support my graphics card, but I can't seem to find a definate answer. What I have is a 450 watt power supply; it has one single 12v rail that provides 24 amps. My graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E. It requires a 450 watt power supply and recommends 30 amps on the 12v rail.

When I asked whether my PSU can support my graphics card on other forums, some people tell me it can, but others tell me it can't, so I'm really confused right now. I had my X1950 hooked up and running for 3 days without having any problem, but I took it out today, just to be safe until I can get a definate answer. Although I do notice that my power supply runs cooler without the X1950 hooked up.

But on other forums, I even heard people run this card on a 18 amp 12v rail without any problem and they even have it running on a fully loaded system with 2x HDD, 2x DVD Drive, cooling system, fans and lights. And many people say that 22 amps should be the minimum to this card and 24 amps should be fine. However, there are also people who say that you should follow the manufacturers recommendation and get a minimum 30 amps power supply.

To give you a better idea of my system, here are the specs.
Pentium 4 HT 524 Prescott 3.06 GHZ (84 watt)

You could try this:
1. Find a low watt power supply, with a 24 amp rail.
2. Use the PSU as an external power source to power the GPU.

Is 450W power supply sufficient for the following ?
Intel Dragontail Peak DP35DPM motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 Mhz
Samsung 2GB DDR2
WD 320GB/7200/16MB SATA II

Does the addition of extra fans affect this at all , or is this negligible ?

A:Power Supply Requirement

Read other 6 answers

I'm trying to figure out how many amps at 12v the system I'm building will require, since it seems like the true limit of basically any PSU is the amount of power is supplies on 12v rails. I have a PSU that supplies 17A at 12v and I'm hoping that will be enough. The system is pretty basic:

ASUS M3N78-EM mobo with NVIDIA GeForce 8300 onboard video
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz 65W processor
1 SATA DVD-ROM drive
May add one or two IDE or SATA HDs and a TV tuner card down the road

I'm having trouble finding data on how much these devices will draw from the 12v specifically. The CPU isn't hard, since it draws all its power at 12v: 65W/12v = 5.4A. Let's say 6.5A with imperfect efficiency, though I have no idea at what efficiency I should expect the CPU to operate. But what about the rest? In particular, I expect the onboard video to draw significant power at 12v, but I can't find how much.

Can anyone help? And can anyone suggest a resource for finding this kind of information in the future? When I find power usage information at all, it's usually simply listed in watts, without specifying which rail it's drawn from.

I did find the following two links in thread:


Both seem pretty useful (if a little out of date), but neither site seems to have good information on onboard video.

A:Please help me calculate power requirement

The onboard graphics doesn't draw significant amounts of power. You could say 1-2 A on the 12 V rail. It's quite a lot less than what a better discrete graphics card, let's say Radeon 4350 would draw.
What's the actual model of your power supply? If it's a "Ultra value 500w power supply" then even the underpowered 17 A @ 12V isn't most probably true, rather it's measured as a top peak output at unrealistic circumstances, for example a lot lower ambient temp than what it normally operates at.

when it comes to power usage im not that up to date i currently have a 250watt power supply that came with a plain jane case , im running a pentium duo core 3.0ghz processor 2 gigs of ram and a 256meg nvidia video card i saw a new case at best buy that came with a 500watt power supply how do i know if that kind of power would be right for what im running, would to much power blow my motherboard ? i was highly advised to up my power supply a friend was amazed my computer was running to begin with.

A:Power requirement question

Power supply problems relate mainly to video graphics. I suggest you get a quality power supply from the list of power supplies on this forum you can find with a search. Certainly 400 or 500 watts is a good choice, if it has steady output.

Hi,this is for a friend who is interested in buying an AMD A6-3650. The power for the processor is listed as 100w.I want to know what will be the minimum power requirement without any GPU attached.It will be of great help since we wanna cut cost to the most affordable one.

A:AMD A6-3650 power supply requirement

In a standard setup with no-GPU one or two HDDs, one or two ODDs a 300w should be sufficient however I would be hesitant to build any system with less than a 400w and preferably a 500w just because there isn't that much of a price difference and it gives you room for future upgradeability.

For budget PSUs I usually recommend these:
Antec VP-450 = $40 (This is a true budget / low end unit, It is decent for the money but I would recommend the others I listed over it. unless you have a really tight budget)
Antec NEO ECO 400C = $45
Antec NEO ECO 520C = $50
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D = $55
FSP Group SAGA+ 500R = $57 (this is good but it is an older model so it doesn't have very many SATA power connectors)
Antec BP550 Plus =$65 (modular if that is important to you)

Almost all of the newer Antecs are made by Delta or Seasonic so they are very good PSUs. Some people recommend the Corsair Builder series in this price range, however the builder series is made by Channel Well Technologies (CWT) which has a less than stellar record and I still don't really trust.

I am upgrading my pc using my old ATX case with a new motherboard which is ECS KM400-M2. The cpu is AMD XP 2800+. The pc would work for a few minutes or seconds and then just shutdown by itself.

The day before yesterday, I posted this question in this forum and an expert had provided with some suggestions on this problem: It seems that something wrong with the power supply and the cpu temperature. I definitely appreciated that.

Before I throw more money onto this computer (I really don't like to do so), could somebody help me on this issues:

1. Do I need a more powerful power switch? Right now, I have a 350kw power supply and someone suggest me to buy a 400kw one.

2. I actually bought and installed a new case fan. I connect the pins to the motherboard. However, when the pc is starting, from the BIOS, I couldn't see its speed and the temperature. Is that a problem? What's wrong and Why?

Please help!

Thanks very much in advanced!

I just came in to the desktop group about 6 months ago, and a few things we do are a little odd (to me). For instance, we order GeForce 9800 cards for AutoCAD users.

But any way, we always ordered these 9800s with a computer that had a power supply that put out lesser wattage than required. So my question is, for the 9800/GTX 260 (nvidia), will it give a message that the wattage is too low or that it is going to start performing less, or can it cause issues without ever giving such messages?

Can it potentially cause issues with other pieces of hardware?

A:Video card power supply requirement (GTX 260, GeForce 9800)

You won't get a warning message.

Most often what happens is a freeze/crash or a restart.

If you haven't experienced any crashes, then the video card is not being stressed very hard. Normally these crashes occur as soon as you put load on to the card, but if this isn't happening, then a 9800 card is total overkill for your application.

You could probably get by with a 9400 or 9500 for these purposes. Technically, a Quadro from nVidia is really their workstation card, but they are all based off the same chips.

I was an idiot and settled for the PNY 7600GS instead of one of the 7950 AGP models. It was running too hot, so I bought a VF900-Cu to cool it down. It just came today and it took some rigging but I hooked it up. I started up RivaTuner hardware monitoring and set the fan to Normal Mode (2400rpm) and I IDLE AT 76 degrees! I started Performance Test and ran 3d benchmark and stopped it once it exceeded 100+ in a few seconds.

I am very concerned, and I am at my witts end. Yes, I used new thermal grease, it is the stuff that came with the zalman fan. I don't know what to do anymore.

I just determined that my 6600GT is gonna kick the bucket real soon, and it pretty much already has anyway. I need a new card that will play FEAR, FSX, etc to a reasonable degree of prettyfulness. The 6600GT was great, played everything as well as I wanted, but now that I'm gonna have to buy a new card I figured I might as well upgrade, if not that drastically, because I'd really like to spend ~$120 or less. I had my eyes on the 7600GS 256 AGP, but I cant decide which make to get. Any ideas? BTW:my last card was an ASUS, and its dead now, so, does that mean I shouldnt trust another ASUS card?

A:new card, maybe 7600GS, but what?

It's all personal preference for brands; both of my nVidia cards have been eVGA...but that's a coincedence . The best card that's on agp isn't out yet...the Radeon X1950. The 7600GS is good for moderate gaming, and will be able to play FEAR on medium-high settings w/o soft shadows or whatever that feature is . Just make sure your power supply is powerful enough.

A:8x AGP or 16x Pcie 7600gs at 4x

I would vote for PCIe. Simply because it is cheaper than AGP. AGP production has slowed down meaning that prices will be higher. Therefore you best bet is PCIe. Also, trully AGP vs. PCIe, the performance difference is so small.

Hello there.

I own the 7600GS Graphics Card from MSI, and i've noticed that my games will crash with it. I'm aware many others are having the same problem.

This has gotten worse now i have reformatted. It crashes within 3 - 5 minutes.

I'll explain in detail:

When i first got this PC, my games would run fine without fault. Then about a couple of weeks later, i noticed my computer crashing, but not much. It was something that annoyed me, but it wasn't the end of the world.

These crashes were sudden. The game would freeze, i'd still be able to talk on Ventrilo/Teamspeak for about 3 - 5 seconds, then the sound would loop. Only way out was by a cold boot.

This started to happen more and more often, until it averaged at about 3 crashes per day. But by this time, my computer would restart around 3 seconds after the looping sounds.

I reformatted my computer today, and i'm furious that the problem has gotten worse. I can't play any games for more than 3 minutes without the crash.

This isn't an overheating problem, or a memory problem.

Current specs:

Mobo: a2n-sli deluxe
CPU: AMD athlon 64 3800+ ~ 2.4ghz
PSU: Antec Truepower 500bp
Ram: Kingston DDR2 Value

I ordered a new PSU today, due to extremely bad reviews about my current PSU.

Although, i don't think this is the problem, due to many other people having this same problem, with the same GFX card.

ALL help much appriciated.

Regards, Lee.

It's the same thing when i try and play a video, they're too dark to be watched but i can solve this by changing any setting in nVidia control panel and then applying it and everything goes back to normal until i try to play another video, it reverts back to dark again and i have to reapply a setting.
Just after i log in aswell, the screen appears normal for about a second or too and then becomes darker.

Is it the card? or some setting i've missed?

If you don't know what you are doing, then don't do it. While overclocking is a good thing for the present, it's not a goog thing for the future. It can lower the life of a card, and if done improperly can ruin the card, and the objects like the motherboard surrounding it.

I just upgraded from a fx5200 to a 7600gs. The 7600 is a big buggy when I play games. Normal graphics is normal such as on desktop or media etc. But whenever I play games stuff like this happens like in the screen shot. The card is not overclocked, I uninstalled the previous drivers and downloaded and installed the new ones. Reseated the card in the AGP slot and unplugged and replugged in the 4 pin molex power on the card. I ran ATI tools and I scanned for artifacts and none were found at default clock. I found that really weird since the graphics on games were screwing up. One thing I did notice was that on the show 3d view tab on atitools the sample graphic was screwed up. Missing pieces and lines all over the place. Another wierd thing was that Everest home edition does not give any info in the GPU and AGP/PCI tabs. It only gives info under the Windows Video and Computer summary tabs. However GPU-Z and all other OCing programs detects the card fine. Could this be a bad card? Or maybe my AGP slot drivers need to be updated? Any insights would be very much welcome.

What exactly is the difference? The GS comes in a 512M version, while the highest I've seen the GT is 256. What I need is a PCI-E card, if that really makes any difference.

But what I want to know is what the difference is, other than that. Which is faster, which is better for what, etc...

Thanks in advance.

A:nVidia 7600GT or 7600GS?

The GS version has a 40% slower clock speed, and the memory frequency is 75% slower. For gaming, the GT is a much faster card all around, even if you are looking at a 512mb version of the GS.

Since when do videocards come in DDR2? :haha:

What you could do for fans is get a case that has atleast 1-2 120mm fans ( on back would be best because all the parts are there ) and try not to run your computer with too many programs, What PSU ( Powersupply ) do you have? All you said was it's a HP PSU because that doesnt tell me very much :haha:

What I think it is, is the PSU because if it's a low Watt power ( like 250w ) then your computer has alot of stuff upgraded to it like the 7600 AGP videocard which needs like 400w to power it and if your PSU is lower then the minimal watt then your computer will over heat or the PSU will die out

Hello everyone!! I just registered here, hoping to get some help. First of all, i would like to apologise for my English, because i come from Greece and it's been a long time since i was able to speak English fluently.

I didn't even overclocked the card, and in all of a sudden the computer was not responding in any of my orders. I tried to set the pc in safe mode, so i can uninstall both the program and the card's drivers, although it may not be that related to the problem. However, the keyboard was not responding in no way. Can somebody tell me what can i do in order to solve thiw problem? Do you thing that if i place an other card might help? I have kept her previous card, an FX5500.

Yes, reinstall the old video card. When you have time, buy your girlfriend a better video card

Whats up with my graphics?? Check pictures

Yes i DO have the latest drivers, and i have tried all the other drivers for my card. One thing i did find though is that if i change my AGP mode (X1, X2, X4) the problem gets better/worse.

When i put the AGP mode on X1 its absoluty terrible and it isnt possible to see whats happening. The screen shots i took are on X4 mode. i dont have a mobo that is compatible with X8 mode (yes i know, i bit behind the times )

i put the card into my friends comp who has X8 and everything was fine. Should this kinda thing be happening to my comp?


A:Graphics error with 7600GS

if you put it in your friends pc its definately not the card, it comes down to drivers and hardware, you and your friend have different mobo?

Ok, I've had this ASUS 7600GS for about a month now. It keeps locking up whenever I load a game or movie. I've installed the proper drivers, a new power supply (card requires min. 18amps on 12V rail) All the diagnostic util's say all is well, no errors in the log. I considered heat to be a factor, but with the air con on & sys temps in the high20's/low 30's it's still the same. Running Win XP Pro. Even being CompTIA A+ and Network+ certified, I'm running out of ideas on this one...
Any ideas???

Since I have my VF900 working good on my PNY 7600GS, I went and overclocked it up to 475/350 and noticed an IMMENSE increase in fps. When I benchmark with Performance Test the peak temp is 79C and when I benchmark with 3dmark05 the peak temp is 83C. (my score was 3363 if youre wondering)

I am reading conflicting things about decent GPU temps. Some say "anything over 70C is bad", while others say that 70C is average, and "a peak of 80C on WoW is normal".

Is this acceptable? Please, no opinions!

A:7600gs/vf900cu OC temps

bump.. all im wondering is if it will ever get higher than this? from what i understand 3dmark05 is the most intensive thing to benchmark with other than 06 and nothing should get as hot as that right?
I returned the clocks back to normal and I am still getting the same temps running PT minus 2 or 3 Celsius. I am starting to wonder why such high temps for a card under $200? When I first got this card, it was getting so hot playing both Oblivion & Morrowind that it would auto-shutdown after 1 or 2 hours of play. I wasn't monitoring my temps then. I am going to try moving some cords around and see if I can get some better airflow. Maybe I will clean it up a bit too, I don't know... I should vacuum anyway probably. lol

I was also reading some posts and might consider adding a vent in front above my usb card and maybe one up top if I can.

I am having problems installing this asus nvidia geforce 7600gs agp card onto my asus p4s800-mx motherboard. When installing, on bootup the card emits a loud, continuous screech or whine, and the monitor remains blank. The card replaces an asus nvidia 5200fx card which works perfectly, but won't handle games like Bioshock. Any clues, anyone?

A:geforce 7600gs agp problem

geforce 7600gs agp

I have also noticed the the card is keyed for 1.5v, but not for 3.3v. The 5200fx card is keyed for both. Does this matter? Am also wondering if the card needs more power?
Cheers, Symo

So yesterday i was playing Pro evolution soccer 6 (on XP) as usual when in the middle of the game the pc froze and i had to restart the computer!

The weird thing that happened was that when XP is starting up it will restart and I cant access the windows.
Since i have also Vista installed i tried to enter on that OS and just like XP, on startup it restarted..

So i entered XP in safe mode and i found that my Screen showed Pink lines going down the whole screen..This does not show on dark backgrounds like black..

I than downloaded the latest driver form Nvidia website and removed all traces of previous driver (Uninstall + 'Driver Cleaner Pro') ..installed the new driver and restarted..

Now i could enter Windows XP (not in safe mode)but still i have pinky lines all over the screen and resolution wont go more than 1024*768

Checking the device manager and under graphics i found this :
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Could this be bad graphic card or is it a software problem?
if so how can i solve it pls

Hello everyone, merry christmas! I just have a small question I'd like to ask, I was just wondering why my Geforce 7600gs says that it has a 600Mhz GPU core and a 700Mhz GPU Memory Speed, from some of the reviews I have read about this card, I thought it was suppose to be 400/800. I just hope that I didn't accidently overclock it. I don't think I changed any of the settings, here is a screeshot:

hello everyone!!

I am planning on buying a new graphics card for my pc and was wondering what would be the best (cheap) graphics card to buy for around 40

The two graphics cards i am most interested in for by budget is the 7600GS or the 8600GT.

I have an amd athlon 64 3800 2.4Ghz, 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD and currently a pathetic Nvidia 7300LE, oh and a 20.1" screen.

i need to be able to play games like Test drive unlimited (which runs so laggy it's unplayable at the mo), FSX, Crysis, TW08, COD4, etc+

i am not really bothered at running crysis at max settings for instance, i just need a card which costs around 40 that can handle the pc games i have mentioned at a resolution of 1680x1050, and be able to play the games mentioned fairly well and running smoothly.

so, should i go for the 7600GS or the 8600GT???

any advice appriciated

A:Nvidia 7600GS or 8600GT

Try this instead as a much more powerful alternative to both of those cards.

I had received a PNY Geforce 7600 GS 512 PCI-E card a few months ago as a replacement for my 6600GT that died. At the time it seemed like a good deal, but almost immediately after installing the card, I found that it was defective. I went to take it back to my local Compusa store, where I had received it, only to find that store, and all others within reasonable driving distance of me had been closed. So I went through there online replacement procedures, and after over a month of back and forth trying to get this solved, they offered me the same card (which I don't want, because from what I learned online, all of these suffer the same defect), or a refund for $140. I'm gonna opt for the $140, unless they will change it to another compatible card instead for me. Here's some info on the problem with the card, if anyone is curious.


Now, my question is, what would be a sutible replacement for this card? I don't want ATI, have never had any luck with those, so would still like to stick to a nvidia. I've found a different model 7600GS, with 256Megs for the same price, or I can get a 8600GS for about $10 more. What else would you guys recommend in that price range?

I installed a PNY Verto nVidia 7600 GS (512MB) into an HP desktop running XP Home SP2. Using S-video output to a Samsung flatpanel TV. Finally got the video to output after fiddling with it for awhile and updating drivers. Now video on TV output is only in Black & White. Tried adjusting all color settings in nVidia properties and on the TV itself but still no color. I have a feeling that the problem lies somewhere in the settings for the video card but so far I haven't been able to find anything that works. Any ideas?

My friend has a AMD Dual Core PC Athlon 64x2 4200 with 1Gb Ram and nVidia Ge Force 7600GS Graphics Card with 512Mb Graphics Memory...dunno if its AGP or PCI-E....
However i would have thought with these specs it would it would be able to play games no bother but he seems to play games like.....Supreme Commander, Medal Honor and Gothic 3 and the frame rate slws right down so i suspect this may be the FX card...its always been like that... is this FX card under-performing? if so what are his options? the CPU he has is socket 939....
He has never changed any settings in the nVidia control centre... could they be set on a lower standard setting?

Hi, ive been looking for a new video card for a while now, ive done alot of searching and ive found the below video card. Is this a good deal?


Now i don't think my PSU can handle this as you can see below in the stats ive posted.

eMachines T3256
Graphics Interface - PCI and AGP
CPU - AMD Athlon XP
CPU Speed - 2.2 GHz
Power Supply Make/Model - Bestec ATX-300-12E REV D
Watt output/Amperage - +12V/15A 300W Max.

So how many amps am i looking for on a new PSU? Also i know quality is a big issue among PSU's so i was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to a couple reliable company's or even post some links to some PSU's. My budget on the PSU is $50 max preferabley.

Thats about it, thanks for the help.

A:7600GS good deal? also PSU concerns

Bump the power supply up to a quality 450 watt supply. That card should work fine, and your very lucky that your eMachines is still running... You might increase your system memory while you're at it. Good luck

Hi i need some help with my graphic card with this 2 OS . Ok at 1st i was using XP Pro and everything is perfect even playing 3d games and now i upgrade it to vista ultimate and its abit laggy and when playing 3d games such as COD4 its very lag. So i need to know is my system spec is compatible of using Vista Ultimate or there a way to make it less lag or i need to add some new hardware to make it better.

Here my spec:

P4 2.8ghz
1.5gb ram ddr333
Intel Motherboard (D845GEBV2)
2 HDD = 60gb and 160gb
GeForce 7600gs agp card 256mb ddr3
1 dvd-rom and 1 dvd writer

I wouldn't think it would cause that much lag. Turning features such as Aeroflip off (the rotating window switcher) will surely improve it. What is your rating in the games window?

My recently bought Gigabyte 7600 GS AGP card (the passive one) is causing problems with mipmapping in every 3D game (old, new, D3D, OpenGL), although it's most evident in older OpenGL games like the Half-Life modification Natural Selection, which is the only game I play seriously, thus care the most about. When I stand still ingame, everything looks perfect, but as soon as I move, the lower half of the screen is flickering weirdly. This is something I'd normally expect when playing at 60Hz, but I play at 1280x1024 at 85Hz and tried lower resolutions at 100Hz, which all produced the same result.

I tried every driver version from 84.66 - which seems to be the first driver that supports my card and also the fastest - to 93.71 to the newest unofficial ones. I tried every single driver setting including setting everything to High Quality with Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic Filtering on (yes, in the proper way), they all had no positive effect. I'm using the newest chipset drivers & BIOS version. I didn't overclock anything, ever. Everything on and in my PC is configured and working perfectly, there are no hardware/software/driver conflicts or defects, no unnecessary programs running in the background, no spyware, no viruses etc (just in case you might wonder). Everything is properly cooled, the GPU heats up to 55C max, the CPU up to about 45C max.

In short: It is definitely a problem caused either by the graphic card or the components it uses (PSU, ... Read more
