Can Antec HCG-520 520 Watts PSU handle Zotac Geforce GTX 560 Ti AMP edition (950MHz core) at max load.
On the zotac site they have mentioned 450 watts as min power req, whereas nvidia site(nvidia card) has 500w as min req.
The card itself consumes 217w at peak as per this site

Here is my build(the right figures show prices in indian rupees):
Intel Core i3 2120 Processor - 7060 INR

Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Motherboard - 4876 INR

2 x Transcend DDR3-1333 4 GB RAM (JM1333KLN-4G) - 2578 INR

Zotac NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560 Ti amp 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card - 13780 INR

Antec HCG-520 PSU - 5353 INR

Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD Internal Hard Drive (ST1000DM003) - 5260 INR

Cooler Master Elite 311 Plus Mid Tower Cabinet - 3466 INR

WD My Passport Essential SE USB 3.0 1 TB - 6322 INR

A system with a single GTX560ti requires a 500W PSU with at least 36A on the 12V rails and two 75W 6-pin PCIe power connectors. The Seasonic M12II-520 is more than electrically sufficient with 40A on the 12V rail, has sufficient PCIe power connectors and is an outstanding PSU. I have one running an HD6950; does it quietly and with ease.

Edit: For some reason I saw the HCG-520 and thought Seasonic M12II-520. Probably because Seasonic makes the HCG 520 for Antec and it has the same base design as the M12II-520.

Yes the Antec HCG-520w will be plenty to run that system.

Thanks.
Seasonic M12II-520 is not available for me so i chose Antec.
HCG-520 has 40A at +12V rail. And has 2 PCI-e 6+2 pin. Is that compatible?
Also the card is factory oc'ed to 950MHz. Did you consider that too?

I did consider the factory OC and it doesn't add significant power draw to the stock GPU. The 6+2 PCIe power connectors can acts as either 75W 6-pin connectors or a 150W 8-pin connector; they are compatible with your GPU. The HCG is basically the same PSU as the M12II-520; the 40A on the 12V rail is sufficient for your PC.
