Well, it looks like the card need a current rating of 12v, and yours only seems to have 10. The wattage is enough though. Do you have a link to the actual PSU? Like on tigerdirect or newegg.

It should work fine. U meet the wattage and amp requirements so I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

Ask X1337 about the specifics of the PSU. He gsve it to me, so maybe he has a manual for it or something...

I found this, but it doesn't really look like it... Same name though.

Yea, that PSU puts out a good 18A @12v. The 7600 series cards aren't real power hungry so that should be fine.

You're sure? are you basing that off of the picture I gave you, or the link to the website? Because the one on the website may not be the same one...

Anywho, does the 7600GT need a direct connection to the PSU or does it draw it's power from the PCI-Express slot?

Its a 400W psu designed for 5V systems. I would get a new psu, but depending on the parts you ahve right now, it should be oaky.

I based it off the pic that was posted. The 7600 series cards draws their power from the PCI-e slot. I'm currently running a XFX 7600GT XXX. They require a minimum of a 350w PSU.
