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.

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.

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.

a 550 watt PSU is enough to run any single graphic card set up.

For a 670, maybe even one of these:

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:
