  1. How many amps are on the +12/v rail of your 520 watt PSU?

    What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

    Yes they will work together but I have doubts that your PSU can power it.
  2. I have Cpu: i5 3570k, 8gb mushkin ram, p8z77-v lk Mobo
    +3.3V@24A, +5V@24A, +12V1@20A, +12V2@20A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2.5A Seasonic 520w psu
    I have done http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine and they told me 470+ recommended and since my psu is 87% i think its good enough
  3. A 520 watt PSU is not enough.I know because I was planning on using a 6870 crossfire with the same PSU.A 6870 consumes the same amount of power as a GTX460.On paper it says it will work but it's just cutting it way to close.And running a PSU at it's max makes it deteriorate a lot faster.Get a good 600 watt PSU and you should be fine.
  4. What about a gtx670 or w/e is = to it in Radeon?
  5. I'm not sure what you mean.The AMD equivalent to a GTX670 would be the 7970.
