Is an OCZ 500 enough...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
...sig rig without the 450's. It's enough for that, but could I toss in one of the 450's for physx still?

Story: the 750 died, mercifully leaving all my other hardware unscathed, still haven't gotten around to starting the RMA process with XFX.

Thanks

Yes it will run, i'd personally go with a corsair TX650w which is only $15 more after the rebate. You'd be able to put in your GTX460 with a GTX450 for physx. But if you can, put in 2 450's if you can SLi them. I think that might outperform your 460.

What OCZ model are you talking about?

If it's the ModXStream Pro 500w or StealthXStream /SXS II 500w, then you'll be fine.

If you're buying new though; an Antec Neo ECO 620C is a better deal.

That one I had it from my first build...

I'm going to try and work with XFX on the 750, but being that I'll be able to SLI the 450's I'm uber happy...not only is it more PPD (when not gaming lol) it should game a lot better than this single 460.
