Solved Can my PSU handle a 670/680? Tags: Graphics Cards Power Supplies Graphics Product Last response: June 25, 2012 12:44 AM in Graphics & Displays Share LiquidAppo June 23, 2012 12:44:36 AM Alright, I'm getting either a 670 or a 680, but I'm unsure my power supply can handle it. I'm using this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-341-... I've done some research online, but I'm new to building and had a hard time deciphering the tech specs. It seems like it could support a 670 or 680, but I want to be absolutely sure. I'm running a Core i5-3570k with this rig. Thank-you very much.

Anyways, your PSU will supply enough power to the card. LiquidAppo June 23, 2012 2:51:14 AM Is the output on the 12V rails enough? It seems to be lower than the recommended for the cards but I'm not sure I'm reading it right. bardacuda June 23, 2012 3:01:50 AM Nvidia recommends 38A available on the 12V rails...that PSU has 2 12V rails with 25A available on each for a total of 50. You're good. yyk71200 June 23, 2012 3:21:17 AM bardacuda said:Nvidia recommends 38A available on the 12V rails...that PSU has 2 12V rails with 25A available on each for a total of 50. You're good. Rails are typically not additive. Table says 504W on 12V rails: http://www.ocztechnology.com/images/awards/mxsp_wattage... 504/12=42A So it is OK. Best solution anort3 June 23, 2012 5:18:58 AM The OCZ is actually a better unit than the Corsair CX. The CX line is Corsair's budget line. The OCZ is plenty for any single graphics card you want to run and is actually plenty to run a system with a GTX 690 in it. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm So don't worry a bit about it and overclock all you want. fantastik250 June 23, 2012 6:15:52 AM yyk71200 said:Rails are typically not additive.

But you still have enough to power the card. anort3 June 23, 2012 6:22:27 AM fantastik250 said:+1^ Rails are not additive. But you still have enough to power the card. Rails ARE additive in some cases. It depends on the manufacturer and how they list their units. Yyk71200 was correct in saying rails are not typically additive.
