Hi all

I've just ordered the Gigabyte GV-N770OC-2GD. My current system consists of the following hardware:

- Intel Core i5 2500K (not overclocked)
- GTX460 1 GB
- Nexus NX-5000 R3 530W
- 250 GB 7200 RPM SATA HDD
- NEC DVD Writer
- Two 120mm case fans

More info on the PSU:

Just wondering if the GTX770 will run stable when both my CPU and the new GTX770 are not overclocked.

no, gigabyte suggests a 600W PSU. yours might be able to power it, but when you do anything serious (games, 3D) your PC will power off, as it wont have enough power

Although many people (other forums) said it is possible with my current PSU, I ordered myself a Seasonic Platinum Series 660W just to be sure. It won't arrive until Monday/Tuesday so until then I will be using my GTX770 with my current PSU.
