My PC's PSU reads, 450W (Peak Power 550W). Is it enough to run MSi Gtx 680? Thank you.

Moreoever, my mobo has a PCI-E 2.0 x 16 slot, it runs GTX 560 Ti without any problems. How about a Gtx 680?.

  1. I wouldn't trust that psu for a gtx 680. http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/power-requirements-for-graphics-cards indicates that for that video card you should have 38 amps on the +12V rail, which is 456W right there, so I seriously doubt your power supply could sustain that.

    Here's one that's decent quality:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($64.99 @ Microcenter)
    Total: $64.99

    Most (if not all) of the cheaper psus that claim 600W are bad quality, see this list: http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
