Hi!

now i am thinking of upgrading my gpu. right now my gpu is GTX 460 768MB Green Edition and my PSU is OCZ CoreXStream True500W 80+ (the box says that peak is 580Watt). i'm thinking to upgrade to MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk edition and the requirement on the internet says that psu must be 550W to run this card. now i want to know if my psu is enough to run this card without any problems.

all my specifications:
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66ghz - NOT OVERCLOCKED
RAM: DDR3 6GB (4GB and 2GB sticks)
GPU: Palit GTX 460 768MB Green Edition - NOT OVERCLOCKED
Motherboard: MSI G41M-SP20
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
PSU: OCZ CoreXStream True500W 80+

i just want to know if my PSU will be enough to run the gtx 560 ti hawk AND I AM NOT GOING TO OVERCLOCK CPU OR GPU they will all run on stock speeds. (besides my mobo doesn't even support overclocking). so that's all i want to know.

Thank you all

You will have abosolutely no problems.
Your OCZ-CXS500W is more than capable of giving power to a 560ti.

Your PSU is fine, but why upgrade to the 560 ti? That's some old hardware.
