Solved PSU for GTX 460 Tags: Power Supplies Gtx Antec Configuration Components Product Last response: July 25, 2010 2:36 PM in Components Share blade47 July 13, 2010 5:40:13 PM Hi Guys, I was planning to get an MSI Hawk 5770. My system config is as follows: 1)Core 2 Duo E8400 2) 4GB ram 3) 250GB HDD + 80GB HDD 4) Antec EA 500 But now that the GTX 460 has been released and it trounces the 5770 in its backyard I was thinking about getting the GTX 460 instead. But the question is : Will the Antec Earthwatts 500 be able to handle the GTX 460? Please help me on this.Thanks in advance.

The 460, no doubt, performs better than the 5770, but costs around $40 more for 768 MB version, around $60 more for the 1 GB version.
