  1. Does the GTX 5680 really exist? I can't find it on google.
  2. NO it dosen't.GTX 560 and 580 exsists.Get a good PSU from brands like XFX,corsair,antec etc.
    Recommended PSU for 580 is 650W and for 560 is 550W.
  3. sorry dont know computers very well, just want to be able to run game with out lag.
  4. If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.
