990FXA-GD65 Power Supply Help
« on: 07-July-12, 05:12:53 »

Hi there, I am currently looking to build a new computer, though I am trying to make sure before ordering the parts that my power supply will work.

I know that the power supplies listed under the motherboards tested section on it's information page is probably the best way to confirm, though I was curious if someone may be able to give me a hand as I would not like to buy a new power supply if the one I have is actually sufficient.  I have done some online calculations to see if the wattage is enough, and it has come back with positive results, though I am not sure if the ampage will be enough for what I am wanting to run.

Here is a list of the current parts that I am looking to run in the new system:

  • MSI 990FXA-GD65
  • MSI Nvidia Geforce 9800G2 1gb 800 MHz
  • Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500gb HDD
  • Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/8G 8gb Ram

The power supply that I am looking to use is the TR2 RX-850 ATX 12V 2.2 14cm Fan.

+3.3v/30A
+5v/28A
+12v/18A
-12v/0.8A
+5vsb/3A

the +3.3v and +5v have a combined max wattage of 180W
the +12V's have a combined max wattage of 720W
the -12v has a combined max wattage of 9.6W
the 5vsb has a combined max wattage of 15W

I am looking to buy the parts for the computer in a bundle, and this would be some helpful information to help with my purchase.  I am trying to stick MSI for as much as I can, though unfortunately there are no MSI power supplies!  If anyone has knowledge on the basis of my request, or just general knowledge to share about choosing a power supply, I am always open to hearing more and expanding my personal knowledge of computers.

Anyways, thanks for reading everyone, I look forward to your responses!

That PSU should be more than enough.

Thank you for the quick reply, I appreciate the fast response.

Out of curiosity, would a second MSI nvidia Geforce 9800 G2 1gb card be something that would add too much strain for the power supply?  In the future I would like to pop in a second card, though I don't want to burn anything out.  Also, are power supplies generally universally equal for their ability to hook into a board, or do some board require different cords and such?

Probably not.  With 60A@12V you should be fine, as long as the loads are evenly balanced on all 12V rails.
