  1. that is one of the worst power supply.a gtx 680 needs no more than a quality 550w unit.xfx pro 550w is a great unit(it's a rebranded seasonic)-

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 680 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
  2. ^+1 thermaltake may look good, however they have horrible components.
  3. no it was bestbuy!!. i was strapped for cash so i just ran out and picked one up. If im going on buy online i was looking into this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139022. I run alot of drives plus id like to go crossfire later on. But as of right now i wanna buy a card thats my main goal unless i really need a new psu. Since mine is no good for a 680 my second choice is a 7950 what are the odds on that?.
  4. the link is dead,you may try running 680 on that psu,i hope it works good for you.but next time,better ask :)
  5. CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
  6. im thinking about just grabbing the 7950 but can my psu handle that tho?
  7. The thermaltake one? Possibly, but I wouldn't try it! As for the TX850 or even the tx750 or tx650 should power 7950's easily!
  8. because what i planned on doing was unplugging everything for the time being till i got a bigger psu. Figuring that the 600 watt would do the job lol
  9. id like to find out what my system draws is there any programs that do so? i really dont feel like buying a new psu right now
  10. What is your entire system specs?
  11. +1 to muffin,my buddy runs 7950 cf on a rosewill capstone gold 750w.but don't try your new card with thermaltake.
  12. x4 955, hyper 212 evo, ga-870a-ud3, 1 stick ddr3 1333, 4hdd 7200, ati 5770, 1 dvd rom, 2 usb ports.
  13. You should get another stick of ddr3 so you can get dual channel memory performance. You also should up your cooling so you can overclock, because there is a high chance of the 955 bottlenecking the 680.
    1. Get another stick of ddr3 ram of the same speed and size.
    2. Up your cooling to something like a corsair H100 or swap out for 2 both high CFM fans.
    3. Get a better powersupply.
    4. You should have enough for a 7870 or 7850.

    i agree with everything except cooler.H100 is $100+ still you need to put your own fan.it is very expensive and 'not worth it' solution.hyper 212 EVO is a great cooler.i wouldn't recommend changing.
  15. Well honestly, i don't know how much he is willing to spend :) Might as well go with something by noctua ;)
  16. i like D14 but it's too big.
  17. I wouldnt of changed the cooler anyways no point ive got it stable at 3.8. Im thinking if i get better ram i could reach 4.0+ Stable if not its the board. Either way doesnt matter im going with a i5 2500k later. Thats why im trying to go big now so ill be ready for the switch as for the d14 it would fit im my case Its an alienware
  18. alienware case??
    good!
