  1. It's perfectly fine for your system.

    Just keep in mind you won't have enough juice to SLI the 680.
  2. Lol!Wow... that is cutting it close i don't recommend it get the 620W version so you have some gpu & cpu OC breathing room you don't want to push your push that hard 24-7
  3. NO!
    the wattage is *just* enough but it does not have two 8 pin PCI power connections for the gtx680.

    edit: ooppps i was checking this review:

    Hardware installation

    Installation of any of GeForce graphics cards is really easy. Once the card is installed and seated into the PC, we connect the two 8-pin PEG power connectors to the graphics card.


    your card may be different, a more "vanilla" design with two 6 pin connections, which then the 520 will work.

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.


    the 520 is close enough given its quality . . .
  4. Yeah it will work as long as your not overclocking your cpu + gpu i still don't recommend it but it's your rig so do as you please just know your pushing your luck you be wise to get a 600W psu ...Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit. If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_680_soc_review,7.html
