Will this psu work with a GTX 560 Ti?

Hey everybody, I took a look at my power supply today and saw the following on the sticker.
Output Max Power 525W
+12VA /18A
+12VB /18A
+12VC /18A
+5V /20A
+3.3V /20A
-12V /0.5A
+5VSB /4A

That is the power supply that came with my Dell Studio XPS 9100, it has a Core i7 with 12 gb ddr3 @ 1333MHz

I want to get this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130683 and it says it needs a "Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps."

Would I run into trouble with that card with my current psu? Thanks for any help.

More about will work
  1. in fact 525W should very enough for GTX 560ti but 525W PSU DELL Stock efficiency Power Supply may be inadequate.
  2. The recommended wattage of 500 covers bad quality psus and dells psus are actually pretty decent. As you have said, the 560ti requires 30A so as long as the 2 pcie connectors are on different cords it should work.
  3. The Dell PSU should work. Contrary to popular believe that all OEM psu's are crappy (majority), dell PSU's can actually do what their rated at. Although they are not that efficient, they won't blow up.

    I still recommend you replace it later when you have money just for efficiency and the fact you don't need to keep your A/C on that much (less efficient = more heat).
  4. Hi, I also have a Dell XPS 9100 and I want to know if I can put an AMD 6950 into it with or without a new PSU.

    If I have to change, would my Dell accept any standard store-bought PSU, or am I pretty much stuck with proprietary PSUs only?

  5. The 6950 uses less power than the 560ti so will work with the stock psu.
