1024 MB 256-bit 0.5ns GDDR5 memory

What power supply do you have? Model and Amps on the +12V rail(s)? A 460 requires 2 ea. 6 pin 12V power plugs. A GTX 460 1GB will use about 13Amps max.
I'd recommend a GOOD 500W PSU. Here is one for ~$50 after $10 rebate: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
