I was going to get a seasonic psu but i'm running low on cash. will this work for now if I don't overclock at all? the gtx670 was a gift and the only other hardware in my pc is a 2500k cpu, 1tb hard drive and 2 fans. the power supply is only $29 after mir. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... what do you think?

It wouldn't be my first choice for a system like that but it will definitely work just fine. It has an 8-pin and a 6-pin which will cover your 670 no problem and as long as you're not overclocking the processor or GPU too much you should be all set. $29 is cheap but it is 80 plus and haswell compatible so it's not all bad hahaha.

I was just joking around haha. 80 plus refers to how efficient it is and Haswell compatible just means it will work okay with the new 4th Gen intel processors (4770 for example). Neither of which is really important since you have a 2500K and its only a $30 PSU.

500w is Nvidia's recommended minimum. It should be okay as long as you aren't planning a massive overclock or a future SLI setup. Pretty good price considering the modular cables and 80-plus rating. I have an OCZ ZT 550w PSU and it is running 2x GTX 660 SLI easily with a 4.5 GHz 3770k. It is really quiet as well. This one looks like it has the same fan.


good to know. thanks guys.
