They are just the +12v rails NFS totaled they are 26 amps all up. So therefore 310 watts total power on those two rails.

PS Should have said too that you may need to up the ante with the PSU mate that doesn't leave much leeway if the GPU takes that much.

what if i choose to plug in the +12V1 rail so it has 16 amps right. but it confuses my mind when manufacturer said my videocard needs atleast 18amps on +12V rail and 300watts psu.

i have geforce 7300LE and it says it consumes avg of 24 watts, so is it fine with my psu that you recently said i have 310 watts psu, or the problem will be the rails?

a 7300LE will be fine with that, it will use both rails its has two as its more efficient for load balancing, that being said what else will it be powering since it may not cut it with all your other stuff plugged in, the HDD takes the 12v, 5v,and 3.3v rails also for instance. what model PSU is it?

http://ed.nt.ntnu.no/lib/exe/fetch.p...tiplex_320.pdf do you have the desktop or the minitower? and it should be printed on the physical psu if you have the unit on hand, or at least the model of it will be on it. the D 930 takes a pretty big chunk of your watts under load as it has a TDP of 95w ARK | Intel® Pentium® D Processor 930 (4M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) that being said your probably fine unless your doing intensive gaming or rendering of something.

Yes mate as RVC says we need to know what brand PSU you have in and I still think you should up the ante and have about a 25% margin excess on the power requirements.

Actually RVC I have had a look around and it would seem that Dell use a maker but have a Dell sticker on them so who that maker is is anyones guess but I have a site somewhere I found the other day that lists the PSU manufacturers I'll check through it.
There were some refs to replacing the original with Corsairs and Antecs etc which will fit the space Dell have in them.

PS http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...urer,2913.html - look at the bottom of C-D listing and Dell is there
