GTX460 PSU Question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm not PSU expert, but from what I've seen, 450W is the minimum requirements for a GTX460.

So, with this Corsair CX-500, will my friend be able to use a bog-standard, not overclocked GTX460?

I'm pretty sure it has the two PCI-e external power connectors needed, I just can't tell whether it is substantial enough.

i would rather suggest you a Rosewill green series 530watts Psu which is cheaper and better then the CX500 V2 which has very low Amps on the +12v rail making it virtually a 450watts psu here have a look
700
the rosewill green series is for 50$ and 20% off w/ promo code RWPSU20, ends 3/25
were as the CX500V2 is for 60$
Choose wisely buddy smile.gif
Good luck thumb.gif buzz the thread for further help if needed wink.gif

You do know that the rating is for all the rails not just the 12v rail. But yeah 40 amps on the 12v rail would be the lowest I would get on a psu. Since that video card will take about 12amps if its stock and the cpu could take up to about 20amps depending on what they have.

So anything from 450-500 watts as long as its high quailty with a 40+ amp rail its all gravy baby thumb.gif

What he said. With my GTX 460, I can't ever pull more than 300 from the wall, and that's while I'm OC testing with OCCT or Furmark. You could overclock, and you would still be fine.
