Nvidia recommends a 500w power supply for a GTX 560 Ti setup.

The Thermaltake Litepower 450w Black Edition is not a very good power supply. It's made by Solytech and only provides 324 watts and 27 amps on the 12v rail. A quality company would call that a 350w power supply.

So you may very well not be getting enough power. Even if it did run I would replace that power supply ASAP. Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec for quality.

Well since the Litepower 600w power supply is really a 500w power supply ( 480 watts / 40 amps on the 12v rail ) it would be better. It's still Solytech made junk though. It should power the card at least. If he will swap it out for free then go for it. You can at least see if that fixes the problem.

ok thanks for your help but what power supply you recommend for such a system and what does it cost

Any of the brands I listed above. 500 watts is plenty. Honestly as long as it's a quality unit a 450w power supply would be fine. The problem is the Thermaltake is not a quality unit.

You really don't have much to choose from. To be honest the 600w Thermaltake is about your best bet. It will be plenty for your system and it's about the best one on that site. It just should be labeled a 500w power supply not 600 watts.

ok thanks ill try my best to get another brand in the near future

will it give enough power to overclock the cpu or the vga ?
July 22, 2012 9:26:49 PM

The question is, why didn't you do the proper research before buying?

As stated above the Thermaltake PSU's aren't very good at all, so I wouldn't even attempt an over clock on anything until you have a proper good quality PSU, with at least 650 watts or more. But that wattage is entirely dependent on your whole system build.

The ideal option would be a full refund on that Thermaltake PSU and buy a better one from a different site. And then, do some proper research before you do any overclocking.

first i thought that tt is the best i did not now that i asked few people and they said its good how much power is needed to overclock the vga and cpu and keep the psu not at full activity ?

As I said above a quality 450w power supply is plenty for your system. Nvidia recommends a larger 500 watt unit because not all power supplies are good quality.

The 12v rail is the most important part of a power supply because in a modern computer that's what powers the main power hungry components like the CPU and GPU.

The Thermaltake 450w unit you have now has 324 watts and 27 amps on the 12v rail. For example of a high quality model the Antec High Current Gamer 400w model provides 360 watts and 30 amps on the 12v rail. So in reality the 400w Antec provides more power.

The 600 watt Thermaltake provides 480 watts and 40 amps on the 12v rail while the Antec HCG 520 watt model provides the same thing.

So you can see why I said they are mislabeled.

The 3770 is about 7% faster than the 2600K clock for clock. However an H67 board and a 3770 non "K" will not overclock while a P67 wih a 2600K will overclock quite easily to ~4.5Ghz with a good aftermarket cooler. Of those 2 the 2600K is a better choice at least if you have a CPU cooler.

ok thanks from where are you ?

I'm in the state of Georgia in the USA.

I have not built a computer with all new parts in years. I upgrade a few parts at a time. The next thing I will get is a new graphics card in a month or two when the GTX 660 is released.

I guess if I had to part it out based on how much each part cost when I bought it new. I order all my parts online usually from

i7 2600K - $310
Gigabyte P67A UD4 - $150
EVGA GTX 460 1GB - $230
8GB GSkill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 - $230
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB - $240
Antec 1200 - $165
WD 640GB Black hard drives x 2 - $150
WD 250GB Blue hard drives x 2 - $120
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B cooler - $40
Corsair 750TX - $75
Samsung 23in LED LCD 2ms 1920 x 1080 - $225
Logitech Z 2300 speakers - $100
Logitech G15 Keyboard - $75
Logitech MX 1100 mouse - $75
Asus DVD Burner - $20
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - $165

A little over $2000

That is what I paid for each part when it was new not what I could get it for today. And most of my parts are at least a year and a half old. Some as much as 3 or 4 years old like my speakers and case.
