- ok I have Enermax Noisetaker having two 12V rails with 18A on each (32A max)

I also have
AMD 64 3700+ San Diego @ 2.2
1Gb Mem
DVD CD ROM/Burner
85GB 7200RPM HardDisk
some cathode lights
1x 12mm fan , 4x80mm fans

ATI "recommends" to have 30A on 12V rails I got 32A but is that enough to be stable ???
I don't want to damage the card...

Sry for bothering again...

You should be Just Fine Bro

Yo - so I finally got the card
Put it in and installed 6.12 catalysts (newest ones)
Checked the temps with ATItool - i think they're fine (doesn't go over 84 under full load)
BUT
When I try to run 3dMark05 And 3dMark06 - the card just freezes about after 3 minuts runnin
So I guess I got not enough power
BTW - I haven't OC'ed - runnin 625/1800
was thinking of getting this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153037

what u guys think ?

I've never tried that or have seen any in depth reviews about it. But hey, it's not hard for Thermaltake to screw something up.

Back that up.

I built 10 Systems with Rosewill PSUs.

Including my own which has been running 1.5 Years....

No hiccups, My system is solid as a rock.
