GTX260 + 460w psu

I am planning to buy a ASUS GTX260 matrix.

My PC specs at the moment

Core 2 duo 2.33ghz E6550 4mb cache
4gb ddr2-800 ram
8800GT asus 512mb ddr3
2 x 80 gb seagate harddrives
G41 motherboard
PSU: Gigabyte Superb 460W

Do you think I will be able to run the gtx260 on the 460w PSU. Not like i have the biggest mobo and cpu.

Any advice would be helpfull thanks

  1. It would be pushing it trying to run GTX260 on that PSU. It is actually rated 400watt continuous load and 460 watt peak, with 2 x +12 volt rails at 14amps and 15amps.
  2. i wouldnt go for a gtx 260 if i was you the hd 5770 is a better buy now, it has dx 11 support so it would be more future proof and it draws less power than the gtx 260 and they perform on par
  3. A GTX260 needs about 10 - 12 amps. A 5770 needs 7 to 8 amps.

    In addition to being a more advanced part, the 5770 is a better choice for your PSU.
