Hey everyone, I have a quick question.
I am thinking about upgrading from my current GTX 460 card to a GTX 560 ti 448 cores Classified Ultra. Currently my PSU is a 630 Watt and wondering if it will do.

My Current Rig:
CPU- Phenom X4 3.7 GHZ
Ram- 6GB of SDDR3
PSU- 630Watt
GPU- GTX 460 768MB

What kind of 630 watt is it? Is it from quality brand (quality brands are Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, xfx, OCZ, and for some reason people think Coolermaster is a good brand, while it's crap), then it will be more then enough.
