I recently bought an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE (1GB) graphics card. However, it needs a recommended 450w and, I believe, two 6-pin power connectors to perform at its best.

Right now, I have a PSU which only supplies about 250w and has idk how many 6 pin connectors.

As far as power supplies go, I'm not too sure which brands are best. I was looking at either a Corsair or Antec within the 600-650w range. Although, I would much appreciate a second opinion on what PSU specifically might go best with the GTX 460 SE. Any suggestions?

Any corsair in the 600-650 watt range is the way to go IMO

Sweet, thanks. I've decided on the CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply. Should serve pretty well, i think. :)

you can run that card from a 380w Antec Earthwatts. you do NOT need anywhere near 600w, your just wasting your money, unless you plan on upgrading to a much more power hungry card in the future.
