Corsair CX-500 Modular enough for EVGA GTX 660 Ti?

I'm just wondering if the CX-500 is going to be enough to power a 660 Ti;

Full specs:

i5 3570K
Hyper 212 Evo
ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600mhz low profile
LG Blu-Ray DVD Combo Drive
EVGA GTX 660 Ti
WD Black 1TB
Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD

And up to 7 fans.

I'm only going to be using this PSU for maybe 7 months tops, basically until I save up for a AX860i and another 660 Ti.

Also I won't being OC'ing the i5 until I have my AX860i.

  1. Yeah it's plenty. The combined TDP of CPU and GPU is only 227W, and the motherboard, fans etc. don't draw hundreds of watts.

    yea just like the previous post said, any single gpu setup would be fine with a psu of 450-500W producing stable output. just be sure that 500W mark is a stable power, not its peak-only-power output

    your system (while under load) wouldnt draw more than 350-400W in any case...
  3. Great!

    I guess I will be getting the CX-500M then.
