I got a Leadtek WinfastGTX 460 OC today for my new build.
According to the leadtek website and the nvidia website the minimum power requirement is 450w 24a

http://www.leadtek.com/eng/3d_graphic/specification.asp...

However, on the box of the Leadtek GTX 460 1gb OC, the mimimum power requirement has been written as:

"Minimum 550W or greater system power supply with a minimum 12V current rating of 38A"

Could this be a typo on the part of leadtek? please help!

What's your PSU? For a GTX260 24a should be alright, as long as no overclocking is done. It's also a bare minimum requirement..I'd feel safer with 26-28. Or +12v1 @ 16a and +12v2 @ 18a or something similar.

Based on reviews of other overclocked GTX460's, I would say 500 watts should be the minimum.

I bought the Xigmatek NRP-PC502 500W Power Supply together with the card as a bundle. its rated as 12v 37A.

I just dont understand why the packaging says 550w 38A when clearly the leadtek website says 450w 24A.

Should I return the psu or am i safe with it?
