GTX 650 TI

I have a 650 TI and I want to install it on my computer I have a dell studios xps 8100 everything on it is the defalt stuff, the only tihng i changed was the power supply (500 watt) but when I put the video card in the computer only stays on for a few seconds (30 at most) how big a power supply do you think I need to get this video card working smoothly?

  1. 500Watt should work, have you installed all your drivers for the GPU, that could be the problem
  2. The computer wont stay on long enough for me to install the drivers, the Computer closes and starts up again.

    Plug your monitor into the port on the back of your MOBO and then install the drivers.

    if you cant start the PC or it will only stay on for a little you PSU might be messed up
  4. What power supply did you purchase. Seems very odd behavior for a computer to act that way.
  5. cool master

  7. The series name/ model number these things will help us identify the PSU

    based on this review and a few others you might have to get a new PSU

    ----Pros: Looks nice, has plenty of plugs.

    Cons: Sporadic power downs. Doesn't have enough power to run an i5-2500k at stock speeds, 1 7200rpm hard drive, and a Nvidia 650 Ti video card. Either I have a bad unit or it's just not enough power. Really only runs about 360 watts of power, not 500. Would not recommend for a gaming system, which is what I purchased it for (budget gaming system).

    Other Thoughts: Don't buy for a gaming system and don't get it if you need more than 360 watt system power.----

    I wish you the best, but you might just have to ask for a PSU these holidays
