Question About My PSU (If It Can Run a Certain Graphics Card).

#1Shadowelite7Posted 9/8/2013 7:29:43 PM
I was looking at buying a Geforce GTX 650 Ti. Doing some research, I noticed that the minimum system power requirement is 400 W. My PSU is 460 W. Will the 60 W difference cause any problems if I decide to install the graphics card with my current PSU?

Thanks.

You think that if it has more than enough juice that it won't work? I don't get what you're asking.

Gpus dont consume 400w. The requeriment you saw was most likely cpu+gpu+hdd, etc combined. 460w should work fine IF its a quality psu (corsair, cooler master). Garbage brands often lie about their real wattage.

I was wondering if there is a recommended amount of power that I need when installing newer graphics card. I wanted to make sure I won't experience any problems when my PSU barely exceeds the minimum power of a graphics card.

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear.

What PSU do you have?
Shub will probably show up soon and tell you if its decent or not.

400w is the recommended amount.(for a very beefy system + the GPU)
An average system would likely not even break 300w under full load.

However, your "460w" may be a 250w junker. Lots of brands do that.
