GTX 560 Ti wattage? [Fixed Links]

I am planning to get this card,

http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-02G-P3-1568-KR/dp/B005760836/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1353189419&sr=8-2&keywords=GTX+560+2048

What wattage would it have/need? If this question cannot be answered, Can you please tell me that it is going to be compatible with the XPS 8300?

(this one)

Will I be able to install the card properly? Without upgrading anything else?

If this setup does not work together will the Dell XPS 8300 work for this graphics card?

    your links are flonky but anyway i highly doubt the PSU in the XPS 8300 has two 6 pin PCI power connections - avoid using 4 pin molex to 6 pin adapter like the plague unless you know it is a quality PSU. and even then only one would be wise; not two.

    a quality 500-550 watt PSU will cover your needs such as corsair, antec, seasonic or XFX.

    oh, i forgot, yes that card or any 560ti will work fine in that with a PSU upgrade.

  3. A stock as well a slightly overclocked GTX560Ti needs 160-180w to properly run on its own so a very decent 500W+ psu is needed. No generic trash excuses for power supplies.

    Is this PSU good enough? http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Supply-RS550-PCARE3-US/dp/B001Q3LWL6/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353201073&sr=1-1&keywords=550+watt

    sorry, no. those coolermasters have failed delivering the "rated" load.
    this is much better:
    CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 $59.99
    Save: $10.00 (14%)
    $39.99 after $20.00 rebate card


    actually that last ink bigcyco1 posted (along with the other great suggestions) is a bit cheaper in "upfront" costs.
  6. If I just ditch the 560 Ti graphics card and get just a 560, will my current PSU be good enough?

  7. if you want to lower the power consumption load, avoid picking a 2 pin card and pick a 1 pin card like a 7850(1 or 2gb) or a 660. losing that 1 pin has a moderately large power consumption change and lowers the load on the psu.

    looking at the specs:
    http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-8300/pd
    Power
    460 W

    no it would not. you would need to get a graphics card that does not require ANY PCI power connections. ie a 7750.

    edit: open the case of the computer and see if there is a 6 pin PCI power connection, that may get you up to a 7770. but if you want a better graphics card you will need another PSU.

    Is this a good PSU and does it meet the rank? Thanks for active replying.

    (I'm looking at 500 or 600 which one should I get?)

    the CX500 will be a good choice
