Hey, i'm wondering if i can either run a 660ti pr a 670 on my current psu. I only have the cash to buy a graphics card, and not a psu.
Here's my specs, can anyone help me out?
CPU Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07GHz
RAM 6.00 GB Triple-Channel DDR3
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. X58-USB3
ATI Radeon HD 5770

Forgot to put my current PSU, it's a 500w Corsair.
You should be fine with either card. Corsair is a quality manufacturer and makes great PSUs. The 670 needs 30 amps total on the 12 v rail. The 660 Ti needs less. The least expensive 500 watt Corsair has 34 amps on the 12 v rail. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 if this is wha you have you are fine.
Cheers for the quick replay man, it's been bugging me all day. I thought everything was down to the cards wattage draw, as my current card takes 108w max, and it says a 670 takes 170w.
It depends on the total draw of the system in reality... The gpu manufacturers give PSU recommendations based on plenty of wiggle room. The newer cards are extremely efficient and the wiggle room is even greater.
