Did anyone buy or own MSI 660Ti Power Edition (N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC)? I found out this card cannot boot on certain PSU, including my 850W and 700W. However, it doing well with another 550W PSU. Does this card have compatibility issue with PSU? Anyone know about that?

What make/model of PSUs are you referring to (all three)? I assume all were used with the same system. Correct?

What psu are you talking about? A cheap 850w psu may only put out 450w.

This is very true. It is possible the 550W PSU is a much stronger PSU than the 2 others.

That is why I asked what make/models were being used.

Not all PSUs are created equally.

Hi there,

I stumbled upon this thread after installing my MSI 660 TI and not being able to boot my pc.
I RMA-ed the card and hope to receive the Asus variant of the 660 TI soon.

Shame on you MSI.... :fou:
