Will the GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked work Stable at full potential with Corsair 650TX power supply?
Why or why Not? I really need to know before buying this Video Card. :bounce:

That psu is probably certified to run 2 of those cards. One...no sweat. Thats a great psu.

The 260 requires 2 pci-ex 6 pin, the 650tx has 2 - 6+2 connectors and plenty of power.

I am currently running a gtx 285 with a corsair 550, no problem.

Easy. You could run SLI on that PSU without it breaking a sweat. It has a single, 52 amp (!!) 12V rail.

I've got a very similar setup = 650W TX Corsair PSU, but with the GTX 295.
There's also an AMD Phenom X4 955 overclocked to 3.8GHz.

I've been told, by a few people, that the GTX 295 needs 49A.
The Corsair *can* do 52A, but only when it's not pushing any other power down any other rail.
When the other rails are in use, then it leaves on 480W on the 12V rail, meaning ~40A.

Have they been lying to me, or does it need more power?
Especially since all the GTX 295 specs say 'at least 680W'.

I'd love to get to the bottom of this one, so thank you in advance
