What PSU do I need for an Asus Nvidia GeForce 2GB GTX 670 DirectCU II Graphics Card

Hello, I'm currently looking at the Asus Nvidia GeForce 2GB GTX 670 DirectCU II Graphics Card and was wondering what power supply I would need. I currently have 450w which I know would not be enough.

I'm looking at the Corsair Gaming Series 2013 Edition GS 700W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit on Amazon, Would this be enough to power my system?

My specs are:
AMD FX 4170 Quad core 4.20 Ghz Processor
8GB RAM
Hitachi 1TB HDD

Thanks in advance Brandon Berry.

  1. for GTX 770, a Corsair CX 600 or GS 600 will be perfect for you, 700w is overkill for it.
  2. yup it(the psu) would be enough but you would likely be bottlenecked by your cpu.

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 670 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 670 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.


    tho why would you look at the 670 when the 770 is out and the 760 dropping any day ?

    I'd get an 850 watter in any case if overclocking anything and allowing for SLI'ing two 770s

    Corsair HX or Seasonic X series would be 1st choice
    Corsair TX, Antec HCG / HCP, XFX Core edition 2nd
