How many amps on this PSU 12v rail?

At first I thought it's only 7.5A but then I looked again at the sticker and it says +12V: 7.5A and +12Vcpu: 11.5A?

 

Also, how did they get to 240W total? I can't find any combination that gets me to 240W

7.5A (90W) on the +12V rail, and 11.5A (138W) on the +12Vcpu rail.

Please include a photo of the entire sticker, uncropped.

Uploaded, around it are just warnings. Could you also help me understand where did the 240W came from? I can't find the right combination of those specs to get to 240W

Where is the brand logo, model name, and other identifying information?

 

The PSU claims it can provide 240W of power at most. With this primary restriction in mind, the individual rails have their own restrictions.

You can draw as much power as you want, from any rails you want, as long as you don't exceed any rail's individual limit and don't exceed the PSU's primary limit.

Ok I got it, so it's a combination of both. It's an HP model PS-6241-4.

 

What maximum wattage would you recommend for a graphics card if I pair this PSU with the following:

Core 2 Quad Q9400, 4 sticks of DDR2 RAM, one 4-pin case fan, a 5.25 optical drive and a SATA SSD?

 

How much room will I have left? considering spikes in GPU sometimes

I agree with the suggestions The_Mask gave you on the Jonnyguru forum - a GTX 750, GTX 750 Ti, GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti low profile. 😌 😉
