Graphic card/psu

Hey guys, i'm getting 27' Dell display and i'm using gtx560ti graphic card.

Now - i know it won't be gaming monster at 1440p so i'm thinking about changing g.card in future, thing is - i don't know if my psu will handle that. So here are things you might want to know :

Card i plan to buy : gtx680

Current specs :

psu : OCZ ZS 550W (80 plus bronze something)
g.card - gtx560ti
Cpu : i7 2600k (non-oc so far) 3,4ghz x 4
HDD (Seagate 500gb) & SSD (Samsung 64gb)

Would this psu handle gtx680 in 100% safe or it's safer to change it for something better ? I've read somewhere 550w is enough for gtx680 but don't know for sure. Thanks

  1. It will work for sure. The GTX 680 needs less power than the GTX 560 Ti.
  2. That was fast, thanks :) and talking 680 - will it handle 1440p in games ? Let's say Crysis2 in hardcore details ? (Never used this resolution so i'm newbie here)
  3. Let's see:



    38 frames per second at maximum settings. It's your call whether it handles it well or not ;).

    Here's results for Battlefield 3:

  4. Thanks man :) seems not bad, i heard turning off AA won't change quality that much on 1440p so i guess it will be playable (still i can change it to 1080 and run it 1:1 non scaled) - thanks again, no more questions :)
  5. No problem :).
