i bought it a couple of days ago.. without knowing that it has questionable quality.. i thought if it is 80+ certified.. it is a good one.. my bad. =(

what if my PSU fails.. can it harm my other components? (i'm afraid if i bought the GTX 550 Ti then the PSU breaks..) :cry:

The card doesn't use that much power anyways. And your PSU is not likely to break because of it. I looked at the specs of your PSU, and it will supply the graphics card and the system fine.

Looking at the review from hardware secrets, that psu exploded when they tried to pull higher than 600w but at what youre using it for with that card you will not see even close to that so you should be ok

yeah i also reviewed that page.. my mistake was i bought it bfore looking it on the net.. coz i thought although it is 80+ certified.. it is in good quality..

but i think i'm good with it.. right now on my current system, it is running at 218watts (extreme outer vision PSU calculator)

then if i use the GTX550 Ti it will only rise up to 314watts..

but still hoping it will not fail..

THANK YOU.. :)

Yea just buy the inno3d. your powersupply will do the job but i wouldnt feel safe with it. when a bad psu blow up it most likely bring other componets with it. i recmoned http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
xfx 550w 85+ very good psu
or spend 20 dollars more and get a 650w which will handle your next gpu upgrade as well http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


thanks thanks.. but i do not have enough money to change my PSU.. coz i bought this couple of days ago..
and now my next target is that Inno3d..

thanks for ur response. =)

Why not go for an HD 7770 GHZ edition?
Its better than the 550ti and consumes less power.
