Graphics card for 650W PSU Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: August 23, 2011 11:50 AM in Graphics & Displays Share danraies August 23, 2011 11:41:47 AM I built a PC for work and home theatre and so it doesn't have much of a graphics card, but I'm wondering how much graphics I could fit in my system without replacing my 650W power supply. Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Processor: Intel Core i5 2500K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Power Supply: Corsair Professional Series 650W Modular PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Boot Drive: OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Mass Storage: 2x Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I also have six case fans. There's no overclock but I'd like to keep the option open. My motherboard does support x8/x8 SLI and crossfire but I figure one card is probably less draw than two. EDIT: Sorry, guys, I didn't follow some of the rules for asking for new GPU advice. Purchase Date: Within the next...three months. Budget: I don't have a budget. I'm more curious about what's realistically within reach if I ever decide to upgrade. Usage: Gaming. I don't have a specific kind of game I enjoy. Preferred Website: newegg.com Overclocking: Not currently SLI/Crossfire: don't care Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 Country: USA Parts Preference: I'd like eyefinity but if an Nvidia card is clearly my best choice then that would be fine.

Then you need 750 or more ) 560 / 570 sli or 6950/6970 cfx should be no problem. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1488/18/ Can't find your answer ? Ask !
