I'm planning on getting a GTX 670 FTW Edition 2gb, and I was wondering if I could run it with the Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W psu.

Here's a link to it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

A link to the card is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


My other PC Specs are as follows:

RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB)
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (Not overclocked... I dont think I could with the 670) [STOCK COOLER]
PSU: Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W psu
CD-player: Basic DVD R-W Drive
I also have 3 Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm Blue LED fans for cooling.
Also, My current GPU is a Nvidia 8800GT.

I appreciate all feedback, thank you ahead of time!

Edit: It would probably be handy to note I plan on using it for heavy gaming like Bf3, Arma2/3(when it comes out), Vindictus, Far Cry 3.

Your good, don't worry about it. The GTX 670 requires a minimum of 500 watts but that's actually not too important. It's the amps and it looks like you have enough on the 12v rail, will check right now and edit after.

Thanks... I'll wait for some more replies just to re-affirm this (don't take that to be offensive), but I really appreciate you easing my mind a bit xD

Okay I just checked I believe the GTX 670 FTW needs around 30 amps, you've got 40 amps on your power supply so its good.

No offense taken my friend, best if we always get thing confirmed with others because I can always make mistakes :)

You shouldn't be using much more than 300W, I'd say you are absolutely fine.
GTX670 needs under 200W(15-17A), CPU is under 100W before overclocking.

Thanks for the reply... So I guess it would be safe to say I could OC my card and/or my CPU?

Yes.. An Antec NeoEco 520c is based off the Seasonic S12II 520 with minor differences mainly on the capacitors. it is a very capable unit that can support heavy overclocks in a system with one video card.

Just to clarify myself since I failed to mention it above, the 30 amps is for a combined 12v rail.
