Hello,

Next month I'm looking at getting a new PC, and just had a quick question about PSU requirements. The GPU I'm looking at is a Gigabyte 670 OC which says it requires 550w of power, however I've seen people mention that a good quality 520 psu would do. Just wanted to confirm that this is correct. The PSU I was looking at was the Antec High Current Gamer 520w.

Thanks.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I won't be doing any overclocking and here are the rest of the specs:

CPU: Intel i5 3470
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 670 OC
Mobo: ASRock B75 Pro-M
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2tb
SSD: SanDisk Extreme SSD 120gb
RAM: G.Skill Ares 1600 (2x4)
CASE: Silverstone TJ08-e
PSU: Antec HCG 520w
and an Optical Drive

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC is a non-reference design that uses a GeForce GTX 680 circuit board. It requires one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCIe Power Connectors. That is the reason why Gigabyte recommends a 550 Watt PSU instead of the 500 Watt PSU that is recommended for reference design GeForce GTX 670 cards that only require two 6-pin PCIe Power Connectors.

Just make sure that the power supply has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 35 Amps or greater and has at least one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Thanks for the reply. I believe it should be fine from what you've said. Here's the link just in case :)

Yes, it should be fine. Your rig should draw only about 350W peak on the +12V and it has 2 6+2 pin PCI-E power connectors.
