With todays newer cards its a pretty good idea to get the dedicated 12v lines...and yes it does.

Antec PSUs have been giving horrible reliability rates for some time now. I would steer clear of them.

Just because yours hasn't yet doesn't mean it won't. I have burned out three Antecs.

Before rushing out buying a 24-pin PSU you might want to count for yourself...

http://www.ixbt.com/short/2k4-05/A8V_b.jpg

...it's only a 20-pin board.

Anyway, getting a 24-pin PSU and a 24->20 converter might however be a good idea. Chances are that you'll be able to reuse it the day you replace the A8V.

Wattage vs. Amperage

Postposted on Sun Jul 17, 2005 2:01 pm

If I search on NewEgg for "19A" I get power supplies of differing wattages. What is the relationship between wattage and amperage? How do I choose the correct PSU?

Me neither. Shorten the link and you will see that it is a foreign link. Probably Russian.

I believe Lickety posted two other links above. And posted another just above.

Electrically speaking P=VI, so wattage is voltage times current . So for a 12V rail, at 19A, that is 12*19 = 228W on the 12V rail.
So for example this TT PSU shows it's amperage as "+3.3V@28A, +5V@45A, +12V@26A"
This means that the power is as follows:
3.3V*28A=92.4W on the 3.3V rail
5V*45A=225W on the 5V rail
12V*26A=312W on the 12V rail
That's the basic idea. The math doesn't follow for the addition of power accross different rails because that varies based on the manufacturer, so yeah.
I hope that answers your questions.
Basically, the higher amperage a PSU can delive over each rail, the better. Certain components use one rail or the other, and some use multiple rails. In general, a 350W PSU is good for a lower-end system, and around 480 is about the max you'll need (except maybe duallies or SLI configurations). The most important factor is the quality of the PSU. A name brand (OCZ, Thermaltake, and others) 350W is superior to a cheap-o 420W that often comes with cheaper cases.[/list][/i]

Sorry, I guess ixbt won't allow deep linking. Anyway, I just did a Google image search for "ASUS A8V DELUXE" and ixbt came up as the first highres image (didn't notice it was in russian).

It doesn't matter anyway, there's an even better image in the TR review of the board
