Closed PSU for GPU question. Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Power Supplies Graphics Last response: June 12, 2011 3:12 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Mandude June 2, 2011 4:28:09 PM I want to assume I may need to buy a new PSU. But I will if your answers are what I am looking for. The GPU I want requires 450 Watt Power Supply (with 24A on the +12V Rail) I have a 500 watt with 17a x2 on the +12v Rail. Would I be able to run said GPU wide open if the game/task required max load? Or should I just buy an upgraded PSU? http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... Thank you!

GTX 460 will work fine with 500W PSU. Regards... delluser1 a b U Graphics card a c 243 ) Power supply June 2, 2011 4:53:08 PM Mandude said: I have a 500 watt with 17a x2 on the +12v Rail. Sounds like an original EA500, if that's the case there's nothing to worry about.
