GS500 i5 2500k and XFX 7950? Tags: Power Supplies Cases Intel i5 Components Last response: December 17, 2012 10:52 AM in Components Share pantrofl December 17, 2012 9:37:27 AM Hey people I'm wondering if my PSU will be fine with these components. Just ordered a new case (CM 690 II advanced with 2 extra case coolers) and a new mobo (p8z77-v). I've already got an i5 2500k installed with a XFX 7950 Double dissipation (not BE) card, but these are at stock speeds. Wanted to OC the i5 to 4.5-4.8ghz and the GPU from 800mhz to around 1100mhz, or further.. depends how far I can get it. Quick edit: 8Gig ram 1HDD 1SSD (not sure if these matter) Will my 500W PSU be enough for this or should I upgrade? Will be getting the components tomorrow so there's still time to order a new PSU and get it tomorrow aswell.

Good luck with your OC. darth pravus a b ) Power supply December 17, 2012 10:26:36 AM What brand is your PSU?
