5970 + gtx 260 power req? Tags: Graphics Cards Asus Gtx Intel i7 Corsair Power Graphics Last response: August 26, 2010 2:46 PM in Graphics & Displays Share davegl1234 August 26, 2010 10:09:08 AM I've got a 750W Corsair psu, and am thinking of throwing in a 260 for phsyx, as i may be able to pick one cheapish. Do you think my current psu would cut the mustard? If not i may consider cheaper Nvidia cards. I also have an overclocked i7 @ 3.8..... what do you think? system: asus p6td deluxe asus 5970 xonar d2x sound card corsair dominators 6GB RAM corsair 750W TX psu i7 920 @ 3.8 More about : 5970 gtx 260 power req unknown_13 a b U Graphics card August 26, 2010 10:17:59 AM Yes i think it'll work, it's a quality Corsair PSU. jsc a b U Graphics card a b Ĉ ASUS August 26, 2010 10:53:20 AM A GTX260 needs about 12 amps. A 5970 needs about 20 - 22 amps An i7-900 needs about 12 amps. That's about 46 amps for the largest power users. That leaves about 200 watts for everything else. I'd prefer more in reserve, but the 750TX should power your system.
