Will My PSU Handle A GTX 660 TI?

Hi

What I want to know is if I'd be able to run a GTX 660 TI the way I'm hoping I can.

I've got this power supply

http://www.acbel.com/eng/Product.aspx?id=48&&sd=31&&pid...

I know that the GTX
It only has one 6+2pin PCIe cable. I was hoping to use a molex to PCIe cable to provide the other 6 pin connecter the 660 ti needs.

Based on the specs supplied by that site is it possible that this would be able to power a system running a GTX 660 TI using the the Molex to PCIe connector?

The others parts in my system include
1 7200rpm HDD
1 Blu Ray Drive
2500K CPU
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-H61M-USB3-B3
1 12cm fan
1 14cm fan
2 ram dimms

Thanks for the help!

I really wouldn't do that on that psu.

Also using Molex adapters for a high end card is not a good idea.

Maybe it could, still looking how much amps it needs. 450W is recommended so theoretically yours should be enough.

But the molex issue is still there then . . .

Thanks for the replies.

I agree, theoretically it seems as though it is enough but, I don't have too much knowledge when it comes to running hardware on the minimum power supply.

Let me know if you find out anything more certain!

And thanks again for your advice.

acbel units arent the worst for foreign units, though I would have recommend getting the ones that are 80+ certified. I personally wouldnt trust myself to run a 660ti on it, but I'm kinda sure that you can run a 7850/upcoming 660(non ti) on it.
