I was looking forward to get a new GPU once and for all.... But when I saw the power requirement for the ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 (ZT-60701-10P) 4 GB DDR5 Graphics Card, it was 700 Watts. And I had recently upgraded my power supply to Corsair GS 700 so I do not want to make another upgrade. Will it work? It must not make the PSU overheat because I'm currently using my PC with an open cabinet. And yes, I am only using the name of ZOTAC because the total Power supply was being shown. What I want to buy is -
Asus NVIDIA GTX 690 4 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS

CPU - Intel Core i5 2310k @2.90 GHz (LGA1155)
UPGRADING TO - Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50GHz Processor

GPU - ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 (ZT-60701-10P) 4 GB DDR5 Graphics Card
CHANGING TO - Asus NVIDIA GTX 690 4 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

Motherboard - ASUS P8Z77 - V (Ended, not LK or PRO, just P8Z77 - V)

PSU - Corsair GS 700 Plus 750 Watts Bronze Certified Power Supply Unit

CD/DVD Drives - Asus DRW-24D3ST/BLK/G/AS DVD Burner Internal Optical Drive
2nd CD/DVD Drives - LG GH24NS95 DVD Burner Internal Optical Drive

RAM/Memory - G.Skill Sniper 4 GB 1666 MHz RAM (Currently Running on 1333 MHz)
2nd RAM/Memory - EVM DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (EVMT4G1333U86D) (on 333 MHz)

HDD Drive - WD Caviar Green 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (WD10EZRX)
2nd HDD Drive - WD Caviar Blue 500 GB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (WD5000AAKX)

Components which must not effect power :-

Everything else - ALL USB Ports used, Connected Webcam and Microphone, XBOX Wireless Receiver, etc.

dark_globe,

I am currently having a GTX 650 Ti Boost 2 GB DCU-OC2.
And well, as the games are coming out for NFS Rivals and Battlefield 4, I wanted to get a GPU which has a good memory capacity as well as higher cores....

And on the link you provided, it says MAX GPU POWER = 300 Watts.
The power Cord provided with the PSU says "13 AMP".... And my PSU DO has 2 PCI-E 8-Pin Power Cables :)

The 780Ti is both faster than the 690 and has more memory, the 690 only has 2GB of usable memory, it says 4GB because its an SLI card. While SLI does double available memory, it also doubles usage; this is because it uses alternate frame rendering, so both cards need both sets of information, in reality, the 690 is just like having SLI 2GB 680, meaning you only have 2GB of VRAM to the 780Ti's 3GB.

Cores are an equally meaningless measure of GPU performance.

cookybiscuit, Seems you will need to read a little more on the GTX 690. When it has "2 GPU's" on "ONE CARD" and total memory of "4096 MB" that does not mean an SLI Card. And yes, if it has a memory of 2 GB Per GPU, it still makes up 4 GB of Memory on 1 Graphic Card. :D 

And well, A nice solution was here.... I WILL try getting a 780 Ti SLI. Well here, I can get only one 780 Ti coz there is a lot of increase in price for an SLI here....

Anyways, WILL a GTX 690 work on a GS 700? That was my main question!

i already answered this question in the end of my previous post...

yes it will work just fine...

If you spend 5 seconds and Google it rather than guessing you'd see you are wrong.

Now when we try getting this complete, SLI or CrossfireX Straight Away means TWO GRAPHIC CARDS connected by an SLI Bridge Card or Corssfire. Now when it comes to "Two GPU's on ONE CARD, that's just "Multi GPU and not SLI.

And I couldn't find it on Google Easily so I'm just telling by my knowledge. Think a bit and then try telling. :(

Well, now I'll have to plan and arrange some amount for a new GPU. I'll visit an old friend for some more assistance. :) 

Best solution

Sorry, you are wrong.

Any 2x GPU Nvidia configuration is SLI despite both being on the same PCB. To run with both GPUs will require it to have a SLI Profile as it acts in the same way as having 2x 680 cards.

It has 2gb for each GPU, and they dont share RAM. You have 2Gb total usable ram.


Your PSU should be fine to run the 690, although it will be running quite high load compared to its capacity.

I would also suggest the 780 Ti instead, as the OC versions are as fast with only a single GPU, and 3Gb RAM rather than 2Gb.
