Geforce GTX 660 requires 24Amps on the 12v rail & a 450W PSU minimum

will this be enough? it's in a good price ..


EVGA's new line of PSUs have gotten some good reviews but Scampi's recommendation would likely be better. XFX makes a very solid line of PSUs. If there is one part you dont want to skimp on, its the PSU.

Pretty much, I'd pay the extra £10 if it meant getting Seasonic build quality that's in the XFX.

All the best.

Seasonic is also pretty much the best you can get for a power supply.
