hello,
i was running Ati 6870 1gb ddr5 from 2. 5 years on COOLER MASTER EXTREME POWER PLUS 650w,
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

Quote:
1. ASUS P8H61M LX3 R2.0 MOTHERBOARD
2. INTEL I5 2310 (no overclock)
3. 2 x 4gb Cosiar vengence DDR3 1333
4. Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 650w
5. 1 HDD 160GB 7200RPM
6. 1 HDD 500GB 7200RPM
7. 1 DVD WRITER
8. 2 NORMAL FANS OF 6-7MM


i removed one Hard disk,
games running cool,
so should i continue my current PSU ?

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:

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