Magma Power Supply

Just got a magma 7 slot off e-bay and the power supply died after 2 days.
Does anyone know the wattage requirements for 4 UAD cards? It had a 300 watter in there. I have an extra 200 watt from an old PC.
Thanks

A UAD-1 card consumes about 12 to 13W.

So 4 cards will consume about 50W or so.

After making sure the supoply can provide enough wattage, the important factor with PSU's is their quality. IOW clean power *can* make a difference. NEVER skimp on a PSU.
