What graphics cards will work with my power supply?

Hey guys, been thinking of getting a new graphics card, and heard that you need to make sure that your power supply can handle it. I was thinking of a gtx 760 or 770, but not sure if my power supply can handle it, link to specs of psu here: http://

Will post more specs if you need them,

Thanks Guys,

  1. none. you need a new psu badly, it wont support the power usage of both cards and also by the looks of it isint 80+ certified, i would recommend the GS600 series by corsair for a new psu

    You definitely need to replace your PSU, you have a mere 13A on the 12V rail, that is only 156W, a GTX 760 requires 170W by itself not including the fact that your CPU needs at least 65W from the 12V rail, plus about 50-100W more from that rail for the motherboard and the rest of things in that system.
