So I've got at the moment a single GTX460, and my cousin is actually planning on upgrading his components pretty soon, and he also has a GTX460. I would have to be sure he has the 256-bit model, but if he does, would the Antec 620W-m power supply I have be able to support it? Its a 620W continuous with 48a on the 12V. If not, nbd really, I really dont want to upgrade the power supply as my cable management took forever.
Also, I would have to use adapters for my cards for the 6-pins. I have them, but some of the ones I have have 1 molex and some I have have 2. Is that a big deal when running a setup like so?
it depends on how power hungry the rest of your system is... you are close to the minimum amount of power you need for your cards. Also keep in mind that you will be putting a hell of a demand on your psu...
Alright good stuff. I've got somewhat of alot of stuff in my computer, but not too bad. the main thing is the 3 hard drives.
I'm going to keep the thread open for the time being though, because if I run into problems I don't exactly want to start a new thread. He has some weird version of the card, but I forgot what it was. I'll have to get back to you.
I'm running 2 and barely reach 400W while playing Skyrim. But like what was touched upon above, you don't want run your PSU at or near 80% unless it's an 80 Plus Silver or better. You're just askin for trouble IMO
Like i said, You are most likely able to run your pc with that psu; but it is not recommended. It's most likely to shorten the life of your psu with a long and constant high stress load. Worst case scenario it could over heat and die. The yes or no answer for you now is if you have a fan in your psu!
