GTX 670 and a 620W PSU

Hello!

I have a ACE AC 620RD+ PSU ,and recently bought a GTX 670 without thinking if my PSU will be able to supply my new graphic card. I have plugged it in, but I don´t receive any video from it.
Therefore my idea was that it doesn´t have enough juice.
The monitor realizes it is on, since if I plug the DVI out for the card then the monitor says no source.

  1. I tried looking up your power supply and came across this:

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/Ace-Power-Supply-Banned-by-Swedish-Electrical-Safety-Board-189021.shtml

    Not even knowing a thing about your power supply, I don't think I would trust it with a GTX670.
  2. I wouldn't trust that PSU i can't seem to find any info on it either i would buy something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088#top
  3. I think that the fact that it was banned by the Swedish Electrical Safety Board is good enough info for me.

    That's a great PSU, but its pretty expensive, though it IS 80+ Gold Certified, which is awesome.

    I don't know if Platinum certifications is better than Gold, but this is a really nice unit as well.
  4. Woow! Doesn´t feel good to know that my PSU is banned :( Will buy a new one then :/ But is 650W enough for the 670? Or should I add a few bucks for some even bigger Watts? Will not use SLI, since my wallet doesn´t approve for that :P

    Thanks for your answers and tips, if 650W is enough I will probably go for the Atnec one.
  5. a 550 watt PSU is enough to run any single graphic card set up.

  6. For a 670, maybe even one of these:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094

    Point is, if you haven't realized, a new power supply might be in order.

    Figured that much, now I don´t even dare to turn on the power anymore :(, should try and take it back to the store and see if I could get my money back, hope I can find the receipt .

    I thank you very much for this info, I would never forgiven myself if anything would happen to my 670 :love:
