Hi guys,

I haven't put together a computer in several years -- I must be getting rusty! I just bought a GeForce GTX 275, and stupidly didn't look at my PSU First. My existing tower has a EA-500 PSU. I know it's not quite the minimum required listed on the GeForce box (575W), but is it at least possible for it to work without frying everything? Or do I need to bite the bullet and buy a new PSU? I'm just running the one graphics card, everything else on my computer is pretty old, and it does have a Thermaltake fan right underneath it (if that matters).

Sorry if this has been asked before ... just wondered if it was even possible. :-) Thanks for the help!!!

You'll be fine with that. 575 watts is just in case you load your PC with ever possible peripheral combination you can think of.

I doubt you'll use above 400 watts.
