Hey guys Ive had an A-10 5800k for a while now but Im in need of a bit more power, So I figured the new gtx 760 would be perfect, Only thing is Im confused about the power requirements. It says minimum 500watt psu which is what I have but when I used a power consumption calculator with the gtx 760 selected it said 350watts. So should I be okay with the 500watt?

AMD A10 5800k
Msi FM2-A75IA-E53 MOBO
8gbs Corsair vengence LP at 1866mhz
SILVERSTONE Strider Plus ST50F-P 500W
2x 500gb seagate momentus Xt
Along with 6 case fans including the cpu cooler.

Yes. You should be fine for with 500W for the GTX 760. The 500W is the safe amount designated by Nvidia and its board partners.
