Power supply problem !

hi guys !

i just bought a new GPU ,, Zotac GTX 465 1 GB ,, and the problem is that i dunno if my PSU is going to handle it well ,,,
My Power supply is Coolmax CA-600 Watt (it only has one 6 pin power connecter)
i read about 80 plus PSU ,, so what't the difference between normal PSU and 80 plus certified ones ??
and will my power supply run this Card without any problems although it's not 80 plus certified ??
am too scared to test it !!
My system Spec :
Gigabyte H55-D2h.
Core I5-760.
4 GB Ram DDR3 1333 MHZ.
Cooler Master V6.

  1. 80 PLUS vs Non 80 PLUS means, the 80 PLUS one is more efficient.

    According to the specs where it has two +12V rail and 18A each it will still support the GTX 465 fine, but it will not be staying long really. You should I think replace it next time, but temporally should be fine.

    EDIT: I Forget about connectors, you should get an adapter.
  2. 600 watts is fine, but only 1 pci connector is a problem. Either you need to get a new PSU with 2 PCI connectors, or get a Y adapter.
