Question

Should, may not get it done.
Of course I cannot definately state that your powersupply is not adequate.
I will say that as a rule of thumb:
I like at least 28ampers on a single 12v leader. Also 20ampers each on the 3.3 & 5 v rails.

If your 12v lead is too lite, this means the 5v & 3.3v rails are gonna fall short also.
This leads to instability of your system. IMO::
These components cost too much to subject them to anything that could damage any of them.

I am not stating a power supply with lower ampers than necessary will ruin the board, it could damage the video card or cause the hard drive to not perform up to std.

I believe in only using the best, not necessary the most expensive.
