Corsair hx620 handle GTX 760?

Wondering if this PSU.. (which I've had forever)

Can handle this card..

Also running: Intel z68 mobo, i5 2500k @ 3.3ghz, 2 7200 HDs, 1 dvdrom, 8gig ram. (all basic stuff)

The card apparently requires 500w, 12v @30amp but my PSU has 2x 12v @ 18amp (I think) so does that add up and qualify?

And if not, any recommendations on PSU upgrade, preferably something that could handle potential upgrades for the years to come?

    Absolutely. Great psu and perfect for a 760.

    Edit - your psu has 3 x 18a rails - the 760 needs 2 x 6 pin PEGS - run one each from 2 of the rails and your good to go.

  2. Wow, I honestly wasn't expecting the good news. The value I've got out of this PSU is mind blowing.

    Thanks Mark.
  3. The 760 needs ~170w. You'll get about 75 from the pci e slot and the remaining 100 will be divided between two rails and will pull about 8a from each - perfect set up.

    A little iffy for future sli as you would need about 16a per rail - a little too close for comfort.
  4. I was running SLi'd 560Ti's on my HX620 for a couple of years and they were 170w cards and that same PSU is now running SLi'd 660Ti's.
