Ive got a medion game-pc, at the moment i have a 600watt power supplie and a gtx 670 (standard version,msi) Now i m wondering, if im able to use a gtx 780 instead of my older gtx 670?

Your using a 600W now.. You should but to be sure tell us your whole computer specs. Number of HDD/SSDs your processor ect..

I think the 780 should be somewhere in the 300-350W range at peak power usage, so it should not be a problem as long as your other components are not power hogs. Any Intel chip at stock should be fine. Only CPU I would worry about might be those crazy 200+W AMD FX 9000 series chips. You probably don't have a huge HDD array, so you should be good to go. This is also thinking a worst case kind of scenario. Chances are that your setup won't get anywhere close to the PSU's ceiling.

780 actually uses about as much power as the 670, so you should be fine.

According to the specs; a gtx 670 uses 175 w and a gtx 780 uses 250w...?
There is a difference ,right?

If the spec says 250W then it should be no trouble at all.

Thats only the GPU usage! U need to know that a WHOLE pc with hdd , cpu,fans,ligths and more, need a lot more watts!
