PSU too low for nVidia 250? Tags: Nvidia Games Graphics Last response: August 20, 2011 3:08 PM in Graphics & Displays Share irishgamer August 20, 2011 1:46:37 PM I just installed a new nVidia GTS 250 and checked on the newegg.com PSU calculator as to what the output would be its not good my specs are: Phenom II x6 CPU ASRock 880G motherboard GeForce GTS 250 16Gb RAM DVD-RW 7200 rpm HDD x2 I have a 500W PSU but the calc says I should have 557W. Should I be careful or can I play games with this card? I haven't run any tests or games, i.e. haven't pushed the card at all yet.
