Up to what caliber graphics card can I safely run with a 500 watt corsair PSU?

Im currently running a geforce 465 gtx, which I hear is a power hog and its been running fine.


But im in the market for a new card.

A titan will run fine on 500 watts so long as you aren't trying to OC it to the max alongside a similarly maxed CPU.

Oh really? Didn't expect that.


So I can pretty much get any card on the market as long as I dont give it a ridiculous OC?


BTW my cpu is an i5 3570k and I have it clocked at 4.2 ghz

High end Fermi cards or a 290/290X would probably stretch you pretty thin but any GK104/110 card or a 7970/280x (that's the 7970 clone right?) or lower should be fine.
