Hello, I am in the market to upgrade my current video card 9800gtx, and am looking at purchasing the 570. My question is, will I have enough power with my current power supply ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ) "Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC" or will i need to purchase something with more juice. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

You are gonna be fine with that PSU

However, they recommend at least 600W PSU which would be the case in high end overclocked processor.


Choose accordingle. In my opinion, it'll be worth buying 600W PSU

Thank you both for the quick responses, while I was hoping I could squeeze by with my current ps, I feel now that it would be best to go ahead and upgrade. The corsair looks good to me, only other question is would this be able to support two cards in the future? If I'm going to drop cash on a new ps, I might as well have room to upgrade with it. If not, any recommendation on an sli capable ps?

Corsair is one of the best PSU manufacturer out there.

Go with the 650W PSU.

You'll be fine and will have some room for overclocking cpu and gpu.


For SLI you need an additional 225 Watts, i.e. atleast 750W
