3-year old PSU still work with GTX460?

G'day,

I got a fairly old Coolermaster 700W 'Real Power M700' PSU, and was wondering if it's compatible with the GTX460 1GB.

By compatability I mean the age of the PSU being okay, the output sufficient, and the right adapters/plugs required.

I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I really want to make sure before I go ahead and buy the 460 :).

    As long as it has the 2x 6 pin pci-e or more and isn't making any funny noises it should be fine. :)

  4. Given how much power efficiency improvement happened in the last 3 years, I wouldn't be surprised is today's mid/high-end cards take less powers than the ones 3 years ago :P.
  5. That's a point. I used to have an HD 4870 512mb on this PSU, so I should be right. Totally forgot about that, even though it's on the table infron of me, :).
