Thermaltake 500w question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I have a i5 2500k (not overclocked) with a 9800gt and 1 HDD. Im upgrading my monitor to 1080p and need to upgrade my Graphics card to stay running at max settings for the games I play (WoW, Crysis2, Starcraft 2)

Here are the specs on my PSU
+3.3V@24A, +5V@15A, +12V1@25A, +12V2@18A, -12V@0.5A, +5VSB@3.0A

I would like to stick with Nvidia cards, but Price/performance/power req, AMD/ATI seems to be a better option. I was looking at a GTX 560ti or if I go AMD the HD 6870.

And one last thing, if i wanted too, (i know this is not a ultra performing setup, but I think it would be cool personally) could I run 2 GTS 450's in SLI with this PSU? Thanks in advance!

The TR2 units are never recommended, but it should be fine to power your system with either one 560 Ti or one 6870 - just as long as you don't overclock. My main concern about overclocking with this PSU is its ability to handle the extra stress, not the extra load.

I do not know whether or not there's enough power for two GTS 450s in SLI with this particular PSU.

You're welcome!

(although, it looks to me like you have wisely decided to leave the option for overclocking completely open since you have both the CPU and the motherboard for it)

Yea, I was going to buy the i5-2400 because I didnt need to overclock for just gaming, but I coming from my last setup, I didnt like being stuck with something and knowing I couldnt do something. (Pentium D 935 on an Intel mobo out of a Gateway PC). And the motherboard I got mainly for "lol futureproofing" and all the bells and whistles if I ever needed them
