Can CX500M run GTX 770?

I'm thinking about upgrading from radeon 7850 to a GTX 770.
Rig:
i5 3570
1 TB HDD
8 GB RAM

PSU - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ALK3HF4/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00ALK3HF4&linkCode=as2&tag=b0b929-20

Will this work? Thanks.

  1. Yes it can.
  2. Barely, but yes
  3. Power Requirements
    GTX 770 models:
    Minimum of a 600 Watt power supply
    (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 42 amps)
    An available 6 pin PCI-E and 8 pin PCI-E power connector
  4. It has a TDP of 230w, so it takes 19.17A on the 12v rail.

    would you recommend it?
  6. It will run and work fine for a while but you have to remember that the Corsair CX series PSU is a budget unit not built to last as long as their higher quality units. Some of the internal components are not the same quality and will age faster running them at high loads.
  7. Best answer
    Your PSU has 38A on the 12v rail, so it provides 456w.

    It's more than enough to run the GTX 770.
