Compatible Graphics Card

Hi,


My System is :

Processor : Intel i5-2510
MB: Intel DH61WW
Ram: 8 GB
PSU: Gigabyte Superb 550(Max Wattage 550)

I currently run a radeon HD 4650.

Now i am interested in purchasing the new Nvidia GTX 660.

Now i am concerned about the power and the width of the GPU, that is will the GPU fit in the motherboard properly?

Thanks,
Sajid .

  1. I'd first replace the power supply.

    Hi,

    Gigabyte has listed a PSU requirement of 450W.

  3. That is assuming that power supply can output anywhere near 450w.

    Replace yours with a quality one and you'll be good to go!

    it says max combined wattage 450 and peak wattage 550. i am not sure what max and peak means here.
  5. This is my PSU specifications


    DC OUTPUT +3.3V +5V +12V1 +12V2 -12V +5Vsb
    22A 25A 18A 18A 0.5A 2.5A
