What can I squeeze out of this PSU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Fairly recently I've built a power-efficient, Solid State-PC, the only moving part is the H60.
Since building this, my love for games has been rekindled and I'm looking to upgrade my GPU.
Thing is, I don't want to change from my Seasonic X-460W Fanless PSU.


I'm wondering what my options are, how much headspace do I have and what could I pull off?

I'm looking to liquid cool it with a 120mm radiator and res, so fans will come right off.

Hopefully with everything at stock, I've got plenty of room to play around with.

Or should I just wait for Kepler?...

With this PSU calculator, it said if every single component was at 100% load, I'd need a 260w PSU. Six-pin connectors deliver 75W and eight-pin deliver 150W from what I know... So with a 6 and 8 pin GPU, I'd only be overloading my PSU by 25W, which is assuming every single component in my system was drawing max at the same time, which is unlikely...

What do you reckon', guys?

Cheers!

Stop using outervision's calculator.. it's poor and unreliable..

On topic, your PSU will handle any single GPU card except for a GTX 480 and a GTX 580, in other words you can go as high as a 6970 or a 570, I'd suggest the 6970 since it performs similarly to the GTX 570 but it's cooler and it draws less power.. a Sapphire Toxic 6950 which has a 6970 switch would be perfect for your rig.
