Will my new Asus GTX670 run with this PSU?

Hi guys. I just got an ASUS GTX 670 (DC2-2GD5, the non overclocked version) and I would like to know if can just run it with my actual PowerCooler 550W PSU (details below). I use all my HW at standard clocks and do not overclock anything


+3.3V@28A, +5V@36A, +12V1@20A, +12V2@18A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2.5A


Thanks!

  1. Nope, sorry. GTX 670 needs a quality 650W at minimum. Example:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

    This one and anything above it will support the GPU just fine.
  2. I wouldn't trust it, I doubt it can even output 550W.
  3. i bought 500w fortron but now i see that its too low, so i will make a new case and there for future proofing i will buy coolermaster silent pro m2 1000Watt. when i played with psu calculator i got 2 gtx 690/3gtx 680/670 power usage of 760-780 Watt per system, so you see its quite safe and its costs 152eur where i live

    unless you intend to go watercooling cause of 3way/4way sli/crossfire i dont think you would need more than 1k psu ever

    Your power supply is crap, I wouldn't it use, but the number on the label is fine and it would probably work ( got enough native connector's ? )
    Nvidia reccomends a minimum 500 watt, based partly on the fact that many people use crap power supplies

    Guru of 3D reccomends 550 watts, thier overclocked watercoooled I7-965 / X58 based system draws 293 watts while running a game like application

    No, you don't need 650 watts or better

    I got just one PCI-E native connector. The other one must be converted from Molex. Is there any problem with that?

    I would highly suggest not using a molex to pci-e converter on a high end card.
  7. Molex=bad choice with high end cards.

    On low end it should be perfectly fine.
