today i bought Zotac Nvidia GTX 760 2gb ddr5,
its running fine with no lag, gta 4 game running cool, no issue yet,
but as i mention i was running same psu with ati 6870 from 2.5 years,
and with new GPU + removed one HARDDISK

  1. Your PSU isn't the greatest, but should still be ok with your system. My TX 750w is over 5yrs old and still running strong. :lol:

    cool :D , so bro, all good? i mean what about amp ? i heared that if amp is not enough for GPU then GPU will not run, but here in my case, gpu performing 3x better :D
  3. Looking at the specs of your PSU, on newegg, you just barely meet the amperage requirement. It might be a good idea to replace it. This PSU is a decent budget PSU with plenty of 12v rail amps for your system.

  4. If I keep it for 3 months. Is that would safe? M asking because I am already tight budget. Recently bought gtx 760 :(

    It should be ok, for a little while, but I would change out as soon as you can.
