so the title says it all, basically i'm planning to purchase a gtx 560 ti graphics card but i'm not sure if my current psu can handle it. based on nvidia's website, the minimum is 500W but i'm not sure if this rating includes the other pc component.
my current build is:
CPU: Intel core i5-2400 3.10 GHz, 6MB Cache LGA1155
mobo: ASUS P8H67-M LE B3 Rev 3.0
vga: Palit GTS 450 Sonic (OC ed) 1024MB GDDR5
Ram: 2 G.Skill Ripjaws gaming series 4gb DDR3-1333 (total of 8gb RAM)
PSU: Cougar RS 80 Plus 550W
and a dvd-rw
i also have asus pa238q monitor if that's a factor.
and there were many variations of gtx 560 ti that adds to my confusion:
there is 2gb vram, 1gb vram, and a 480 cuda cores, do all these require same PSU W?
i hope to be enlightened, thanks!
