Is power supply decent?

IM doing some computer upgrades, and this is the power supply my system has always used 700 Watt Power Supply Gaming Model XON-700P12N
I am going to be getting an amd 965 x4 proccessor and possibly a 660 gtx ti card, is this power supply unit good enough?

  1. Antec Vp 450W for 31. Get only brands like XFX/Corsair/PCP/Seasonic/PCP/Antec.

    Not other

    Edit : Thats a 35$ 700W PSU. So i dont think its anygood.

    Hi - It is poorly reviewed PSU, so if it's in your budget, you should consider
    an upgrade. BTW, for one GPU with that systen you only need a quality
    400w unit, so I'd be looking in the 430-500w range.

  3. Not the best for sure http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story4&reid=109 It has the specs to handle your specs but I will suggest something more modern and more efficient.
  4. For a system using a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) @ 45-50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.

    The XION Gaming Model 700W (XON-700P12N), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 36.8 Amps and with two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

    The JonnyGuru link, that @rolli59 provided, is for a different model than the OP has. JonnyGuru reviewed the XON-700P14N which has four +12V rails with a claimed maximum combined rating of 600W (50A).

    The OP's XON-700P12N only has two +12V rails with no claimed combined +12V rating but it is actually 442W (36.8A). This points to an old obsolete design.

    Read better. The one here its the one OP has.

    30A 28A 18A 18A 18A 20A 0.5A 2.2A

    683W
    700W
  6. Well that is what jonny lists in all tables.

    Look at the picture JonnyGuru posted and you'll clearly see XON-700P14N

  8. Wonder why the review shows up under the other model number and Jonny keeps referring to it?

    I see other people referring to that JonnyGuru review also when asked about the XON-700P12N.

    When posters specify that their XON-700P12N only has two +12V rails that tells me that JonnyGuru is using the wrong model number in their charts and that the picture that is posted with their review is really for the XON-700P14N which definitely has four +12V rails.
  10. Found a couple of old ebay links with the older p12n and it is does not look good. But then again OP has not posted how many rails his has so I have noticed.
  11. I am not afraid to admit i am a noob with this stuff, i have no idea what exactly the term "rails" is referring to, i typically buy a premade PC and that lasts me for a good 5 years, but this time i'm upgrading my current.
  12. The OP has specified "700 Watt Power Supply Gaming Model XON-700P12N" so it must be this one
