Hello there, Sorry to bother but would a GTX550Ti work with the given PSU up above.
My system is:
Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H
AMD Athlon x2 64 6000+ @ 3.10Ghz
4GB DDR2 RAM
(currently) A dyeing 8600GT 512MB DDR2
Hitachi 1TB 7200RPM HDD (32MB cache)

The PSU has 2 12V rails each at 18A and I would be keen to know if it can support the GTX550 TI. I already know that it would be able to handle a GTS450 which is a bit slower than the GTX550Ti
Also I've done some research and found out that the GTX550 Ti draws only 10 more Watts than what the GTS450 does.
Help please :)  :)  :bounce:

It is risk to use that card on 460w. you must change your psu at least 600w or 750w to beware low performance or quality and also heatup problems.

^^You crazy??

@OP: For GTX550 Ti 450W is enough. But i am more worried about your PSU's brand. That is one heck of a bad PSU. Get a Corsair CX430W and be happy provided if you dont go for SLI in the future.

Ah. OK so I shall stick to getting a GTS450. It's only until I can afford a better overall computer, which could take a couple of months or a year for all I know. A GTS450 will do what I need but I was looking at the 10% (-ish) better performance of the GTX550 Ti. Thank you for the answers, that's 7$ spared XD
