hey guys, so i wanted to know something, is a gtx 650 capable of running in a 350 watt psu?

i know that the minimum requirement for it its 400 watts, but still.. its a stock psu, and the pc brand is asus.

atm im using a gt 520 (29w TDP), and i rlly want to replace the gpu for a better one without replacing anything besides that.

the gtx 650 (64w TDP) 2x

my sistem:

i7-2600, 1,6ghz idle - 3,4ghz normal - 3,8ghz turbo
8 GB RAM (1333mhz)
350w PSU (ill put the name of it later)
some sh*tty stock asus MB.
a sata II 6gb/s 1 TB (no idea if its relevent)


shall i also dare to ask if it would run 100% on 2.0 x16 PciE.? :pfff: 

thanks in advance

I wouldn't do it.

If you had a 65w CPU or something MAYBE you could rationalize that the recommended PSU number assumed more power would be required by the CPU, but your 95w i7 is "normal" and doesn't really leave a lot of wiggle room.

If it's a no-name PSU, then no way, no how.

uhm i did that test with a 7750 (uses a bit less) and gaved me 302W, but then again i have no idea if they calculated all the components at full load.

thanks

its an AC BEL 300w psu with 350w peak. my bad i thought it was 350w normal. im probably upgrading to a 600w corsair( 64euros about 90 dollars) and to a gtx 650.

my budget's kinda limited, and my gt 520 still satisfies me, i only play bf3 and surf the web, i can reach a normal 60 fps with gamer settings, but im definitevly replacing my psu since i dont know AC BEL brand and it can fk my Cpu which is a good one.
