hey guys
how are you all ?

i am going to by a Gigabyte 670GTX and i have an Aerocool +80 bronze 600W PSU

is that enough ? because i barely have the money for the GPU so is it enough ? i've read that it'll run perfectly with 600W

my set up :

i5 2500k at stock clocks
500gb WD blue
1600 corsair 8gb ram
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe
560TI (for now only going to be replaced with 670 hopefully)

thanks

600w is more than enough if its a quality psu. you could even get away with something along with 500-550w probably as well.

A good 600w PSU should be able to handle the GTX 670 (plus overclocking) without problems, but don't try SLI on it. Theoretically, you could go a little lower in wattage, but then overclocking would be more dangerous. Considering that you have the i5-2500K, I have to assume that overclocking is a goal of some sort.

no not overclocking anything i got the K version in case i need the OC i always like to be ready for anything so a couple of $s wouldn't harm considering that i5 2500 and 2500K are both cheap

and i am not overclocking my gpu

i dont like to overclock unless i have a good reason to do it

thanks !

A single GTX 670 requires a minimum of 500w so 600w is more than sufficient.

In that case, you should shouldn't have problems from insufficient PSU wattage.

You're welcome.
