Hi,
I want to buy a MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC because my Gtx 460 broke. But i don't know if my PSU has enough watt to support my new graphic card. It's an Corsair Builder CX 500W

My specs
AMD phenom x6 1090t
1 Dvd-RW drive
Gigabyte 970-D3
SSD ocz agility 3 64gb
HDD 500 GB
2x 4GB RAM Corsair Vengeance

But I'd get a 600W PSU just so you got that extra juice for upgrading in the future.

that card needs a 400 watt so you should be good if it is not too old.

I think i'll stick with my 500W PSU , I bought it last year with my GTX 460. It's a shame my gtx 460 broke because i didn't had any problems playing on high settings.

Yeah you'll run fine on the 500W but like I said it's always nicer to have some head room incase you upgrade stuff.

You will be amazed at the performance of the 660 Ti compared to your 460! You will be pressed to pull around 350W with the 660 Ti and the current system you have, and your PSU is rated for 456W on the +12V rail.
