Hi all, I'm about to buy a geforce Gtx 760 and I wanted to make sure I have enough wattage to hold up the entire rig.

My pc consists of:

- Asus m5a88-v evo Motherboard
- 4 x 2gb RAM 1866Mhz
- 2 Hard drives
- AMD FX-8350 - 8 core CPU
- Sentey ERP650-SS 650w (Currently installed power supply)

Do you guys think that power supply is enough for the gtx 760?
I know that a top nodge 550w power supply would be enough but I realize mine is not very good.

Here's the link to the Power Supply Specs:

Thanks a lot!

Well, that Sentey has a "single powerful 12V rail", which sounds promising, but it doesn't actually give any detail as to how "powerful" the rail actually is, so I'd personally infer that it's not "powerful" at all, or they'd give details.

I'd replace it with an XFX, Corsair or Seasonic 550W PSU.

I use a 550W PSU with my 760 and don't have any problems with it. The 650W is rather large for the card, and I would say 600W would be the most you would need. Minimum specs say the 760 needs at least a 500W PSU. The PSU will hold the rig fine, but if you haven't got the parts yet I would get a 600W instead. Here is a good one: http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemNumber=N82E168171...
