Don't power up an awesome 230.00$ GPU with a lame 25.00$ PSU
You can get a decent 500w for around 50.00/60.00$.
So buying a new PSU is the best bet?
I don't think hes in the US though, LC Power is an European brand IIRC.
That PSU isn't Diablotek horrible, but still bad. The supposed 336W on the 12v rail (probably overrated) is pretty close to the limit of powering a GTX460, combined with the no-so-great brand makes it pretty much a no-go.
I'm in the US, and thanks for the tips. I will definitely look into getting a new PSU.
You don't need one that large, but a 400-500W quality unit costs the same.
Yes, make sure you have 500watts or higher or else you will have some long term issue later on.
Remember that you also have other parts on your computer that uses some watts from the PSU.
I think the high wattage psu's would be more for you and I would be looking for psu with over 600w. Remember pc updates happen every day and who knows what else you might wont to add to your machine in the near future.
Plenty of watts and plenty of adapters.
hope this helps
Yes, dont try your luck powering up that GPU with your current PSU as you may risk overloading the PSU if not right away, while gaming. You may blow your mobo and/or the video card.
