I am looking into buying the palit gtx 460 768mb card but don't know if it is compatible with my current PSU.
My PSU is an Akasa 500w psu that has the following power outputs.

maximum Wattage: 420W
Rail: +12V1 = 18.0A
Rail: +12V2 = 18.0A
Maximum Load: 35A

More imformation below:

Thank you everybody for your time and for helping me! :)

GTX460 768MB sucks.
Get a real one with 1GB.
PSU is marginal but should be okay if it includes PCI-E attachment.
A GTX460 1GB can require up to ~24A apparently,

you will be fine. that particular unit peaks at almost 625w (HWS pulled 540w on the 12v alone). Unfortunately its efficiency drops below 80% once you get past 300w.

Where did you get that idea from? :heink: 





It seems that even a heavily OC'd and overvolted card barely uses 18 amps.


A more standard one will struggle to use more than 11-12 amps.

I'd go for a 1GB rather than a 768MB myself but as far as the Palit brand is concerned, I know of a couple of 8800GT Palit cards that are still going strong after three years so I think they are as good as anyone else tbh.
