Hello guys.I'm thinking of buying a new video card,since i have the money and i think the GPU in my current rig is the only thing,that's kinda bad.Specs atm:
CPU: Intel i5-3570k @ Stock Speeds (Gonna buy a Cooler Master Hyper 212 + and overclock then,now i'm with stock cooler)
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X 2x4GB @ 1600MHz
GPU: Sapphire HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 Vapor-X Edition
PSU: Cooler Master 460W Elite
So i don't know if the gtx 560 ti will run good on this psu.I know it's only 324W on the 12V but the GTX 560 Ti is just extra 50 more than my current HD 6850.The CPU requires only 77W and my current video - ~127W.The GTX 560 Ti requires 170W.Will my PSU be enought?
P.S. I have one HDD,500GB Hitachi,pretty shitty,but get's the job done and one DVD/CD Reader.

If not the 448 cores,maybe the regular 560 Ti?

It won't run. Neither would regular GTX 560 Ti. That power supply isn't good at all, cooler master makes very crappy power supplies.

Well are you sure,have you had any recent experience like this,or you're just assuming?

I'm saying this because 27 amps is too little for GTX 560 Ti and i5 3570k.

I'd say at least 34.

Too bad,i really hoped i can get the card with this PSU.Now i'm stuck with the hd 6850..
P.S. From newegg,could you send me the most inexpensive PSU,that will handle my config?

Here's a review of your Cooler Master psu: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-El...

Frankly, I suspect the 560 448 would run, but just barely and it might either run very poorly or even be bad for the various electronic components.

On Newegg you can find this Antec for $38: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-VP450-Powe...

It's a big improvement over what you have, but if you are going to spend $250-300 for a graphics card, I'd spend an extra few and get something like this:
