You do want to verify the voltages under load. You can run either prime 95 and furmark while monitoring the Voltages. Pan attention to the +12 V. While the Min spec is 11.4 Volts, I do not like to go below +11.6 Volts. | Report abuse shanky887614 January 15, 2012 12:50:36 PM read this here http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2011/01/25/nv... says card draws 285 watts, id say 300 to be safe then another 100 watts for cpu (about 95 watt's according to spec) thats 400 watts then you have motherboard,ram,dvd drive and hard drive id suggest 550/600 minimum but you may want more i know i picked up a 750watt because there not a lot more go for well known brands antec, ocz, corsair. look for ones that are 80 pluss it wont benerfit you in any way but it means that the components will likely be good quality (dont go for gigabyte, grabbedone of there psu's as replacement in last pc (built this one this week) and it sounded like a hairdryer yet my ocz is quite remmeber psu's can lose there efficency over time so go for a higher wattage than you need (is only really noticiable in cheap psu brands) | Report abuse delluser1 Power supply Master January 15, 2012 1:04:08 PM shanky887614 said:read this here http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2011/01/25/nv... says card draws 285 watts 24 amps, just the card Nah, it say's the system draws 285 watts when running 3Dmark OP's psu should be enough, we just dislike low quality around here. | Report abuse RetiredChief Power supply Authority January 15, 2012 1:08:55 PM ^ On power requirements MY I5-2500K OCed to 4.2, 1 HDD, 2 SSDs, 16 Gigs of Ram, a ATI 6870 GPU ONLY draws 350 Watts when Loaded with Furmark A "good" quality 450 Watts would run his system. The question is the "brand" of PSU. Personally I would recommend a Higher quality PSU as jsc and Chesteracorgi stated. | Report abuse ash256 January 25, 2012 2:57:10 PM Best answer selected by ash256. | Report abuse Mousemonkey Power supply Expert January 25, 2012 3:29:03 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Is this PSU enough for this system?> Related ressources: ForumWill my PSU be enough for this system ?
