Question about Computers & Internet
The card has a 330 wat minimum does that assume the rest of my system uses some of the power
Usually the power quoted is for the entire system, not for the graphic card. The 8600GT systems (even yours with the overclocked GPU) would run fine with any PSU which comes true 300W (Single Rail PSU).
A key thing it seems in the amperage of your 12V, if its less than 18 or 20 (some say it should be even higher), it might not be enough for your graphic card as it does not come with an extra power socket (only the 8600GTS and above have this).
