I'm wondering how much power is lost over time with these psu's

I have a corsair tx650w which is about 2.5 - 3 years old and im about to upgrade to a

2500k which ill probly overclock to 4.5ish,
maybe with an aftermarket cooler
2x4gb ram
1xSSD + 2-3 7200rpm drives + 1 dvd rw drive
and minimal case fans etc

but what im really wondering is , will it handle MSI gtx 560 ti SLI ( with probably no overclocking on my part) with the psu's age

The psu is mounted and i have no access to the info on the psu without removing it to look, i will attempt to find the original invoice from the online seller but for now lets assume its the worst of the two, should i remove the 560ti before installing the matrix card?

Thanks by the way, your doing good things here

Do you have the specs of the matrix card? I don't know its TDP so it's hard to say. If it's like 40W or less then it should be ok for short term even if you have the garbage version.

This calculator says I should have a 650W PSU, but mine has never skipped a beat.

Are the figures extremely over-exaggerated?

I'm debating whether or not the GTX480 should be in class 1 or 2. Without major overclocking, I'm thinking 2.

If you're unsure, leave it in Class 1.

Whilst it may run perfectly on my 520HX, it may not be the case for other PSU's in the category. So it may be best to add in a little factor of safety anyway.

Did I just see Phaedrus2129 make a calculator screenshot?!

I am pretty thrilled. Nice to have one carry around knowing that I would not have to be embarrassed to ask him about PSU calculations anymore.
