  1. No, you have ONE (1) 6+2 pin connector, which is an 8-pin connector basically.

    You need TWO (2) 6 pin connectors... so if you wanna put it in simpler terms, it requires '12' pins...

    I would assume any 500W 80Plus Power Supply, would have what you need to power one GTX460. But then again, you should double-check just to be sure.

    Look for reliable brands, such as Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic. and you should be set.
    For example, these are often recommended for those on a budget.

    Hope this helps.
  2. Coolermaster GX550w Bronze, cheap and more than efficient enough to run a 460.
  3. GX are crap.xfx 550w is a way better choice.they are made by seasonic.check em out.
  4. I second, or is it third now ;-) the XFX 550w. Solid PSU and can usually be found at a really good price.

    EDIT:

    Hang on......the CM GX 750 has x4 6+2 pin cables. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171053

    6+2 basically means it can be a 6 pin or an 8pin, just detatch the extra 2 if you need 6 pin, or attach them if you need 8.

    Your PSU has 4 of these cables, and you only need 2 of them for the GTX 460. So basically, yes, the PSU you have is perfectly fine for a GTX 460.

    Wow, you're right. I completely misread and assumed that he only have one 6+2 pci-e connector. =="

    To OP: Anyway, as pointed out, you are fine with the power supply you have now. You even have enough plugs to run 2 GTX460s in SLI, but take note of the wattage required to do so.
