MSI GeForce GTX 760, will it work with my computer?

I have an Asus CM6730-US005S, and I was wondering if the new MSI GeForce GTX 760 graphics card will, first of all, fit in my computer, and second, will work on my computer. Thanks!

  1. It MIGHT fit.. You need to measure for clearance length-wise.. As for working? Yes, as long as you get a new power supply, 500w minimum, gold rated or higher preferably.
  2. You'll need to get a better powersupply as the one in you computer is only 300w. A high quality 500w one would do the trick. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094

    Other than that, it could be a tight squeeze in your case. I can't exactly tell how much space youll have
  3. Thanks for the help! What about the GTX 660 (not the Ti), will that fit and will that require a new PSU?
  4. With your current system? ANY GPU upgrade will require a PSU upgrade. That is by no means a gaming PC you have. As far as size, the 760 should fit as long as you get the shortest one you can find. Actually.. After looking around this one would absolutely fit, and I think its shorter than most of the 660s.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121775
  5. Yes you'd still need a new powersupply. Here's a handy dandy system wattage minimums guide for graphic cards. It's not the most accurate because they tried to account for a wide range of systems

    But I find it's a good reference.

    For a 300w powersupply you'd need some veeeery weak. I highly recommend buying a powersupply if you want any sort of real graphics power
  6. Alright, regarding the power supply with cpu, no one really seems to mention how much power the processor consumes. i have a 3rd gen i5 (3350p). how much power will that consume in watts?
  7. Really wouldn't make a difference if it was a 3770k or your 3350p. A good 600w PSU will be plenty for your CPU and a GTX 760, especially that Asus one I linked which only uses a single 6 pin power connector.
  8. Alright, thanks! what about an Asus GTX 650 Ti? Would a 500w PSU be enough for my processor and the GTX 650 Ti?

    A good 500w powersupply would not only be able to run a 650ti but also a 760

    Thanks, Mr. Angelo! Sorry i'm switching back and forth between graphics cards. Unfortunately, I don't have too much money to spend on a PSU and a graphics card, so the GTX 650 Ti is probably going to be the card that I will buy.

    650ti is a decent card, and it will likely fit in your case a bit easier than the 760.

    Happy building!
  12. So, what about a GIGABYTE GTX 660 OC 2GB? Will 500w be enough, or would it burn up the PSU?

    See, I linked this:
    http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/power-requirements-for-graphics-cards

    So when you had questions like these then you wouldn't have to wait for an answer :)

    And the answer is yes
  14. Alright thanks. But still, wouldn't the other components need power?

    This list is the minimum recommended power for the entire system with the card, NOT just he card itself.
  16. Awesome, so why do people go with 600w PSUs even when they just have one card that takes up 450w?

    Partially because they may have a big idea to sli one day...and never do. Or misinformation. Although I wouldn't go below the list I linked, on some systems especially ones that have cpu's that don't hog as much of power could probably go a little lower than that.

    And haveing a little more power wont doing anything bad to your system and people usually want to play it safe.

    There is also the fact that PSU's are the most efficient at 50% load. Also, personally, I would not want to run a 500W system on a 550W PSU. My preference for a system that maxes out at 400W load would be a 600W PSU.
