If i buy a gtx 670 will it come with a molex to PCIe adapter? And also do you think my PSU could handle a gtx 670?

  1. i plan on buying it from a local store so if i do *** it up could i just return it? >:)
  2. using any sort of cheap power supply could cause your system to be destroyed. The power recommendation for a gtx 670 is always baseline 400/500 w

    the total system draw is only 247 w but using a cheap power supply that's rated 500 your probly getting 250 from it.

    something your price range with good quality is

    Yes it comes with a molex to PCIe adapter, mine came with it and it depends on the brand, but I assume most would.

    I don't know about that PSU, I always avoid them when I make rigs for my friends. I have so far stuck with OCZ, Corsair and Antec and none of my friends or myself have had an issue with our rigs. However, choice is yours, as you can get a fully modular 550W PSU that can push the GTX670 without an issue and should last long time. So go to newegg and search better PSUs.

    You should def get a new PSU and go from there and a 650W PSU is more than enough for your rig but I'd get a 850W PSU if you are planning to add another GPU later on. Lots of things are on sale so go to www.newegg.com and search around. All the best!
  6. if you are playing an entire upgrade go with something good so your not regretting it or scared your going to blow up your hard earned money.

    seasonic is the most reputable brand and best quality. 60 bucks for this is a lot of bang and a little buck.
  7. just found an antec ea500W in the garage, will this be able to run a GTX 670 till i get the corsair tx750? Or should i just buy the gpu and new psu together?

  8. That Antec PSU should be fine. It's rated at 44 amps, which is plenty, while the Ultra is only 28 amps on the +12 volt rail.

    According to Guru3d, you need 550 watts for a GTX 670, but if you don't have a lot running and no overclocking, 500 watts should work.

    Nvidia recommends 500 watts.
