Hello,I have a OCZ Modxtream-pro 500W PSU, is PNY GTX 470 gonna work? geofelt Replied with Quote:The GTX470 requires a 550w psu with 38a on the 12v lines, according to EVGA. Your psu is 500w, with 36w on the 12v lines. It is close enough to give it a shot. Nothing really bad will happen if it is barely not enough. Look for display anomalies particularly under load while gaming. I would be prepared to change the psu out if you get any indication of trouble. My short list of quality replacements would come from PC P&C, XFX,Corsair, Seasonic, And Antec, to name a few. What kind of anomalies will I get?

The manufacturers suggested requirements are for the most part entirely made up based upon a variety of factors the manufacturer cannot possibly know. jrhii August 29, 2010 1:38:08 AM They tend to overshoot power requirements in my experience, but that may not be the case if you are running a high enough OC or enough high speed drives. ahtze August 29, 2010 2:49:21 AM I guess I will be fine, I am only running 2 normal Hard drive and AMD phenom X2 550.
