Can this PSU handle my setup?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Current Graphics Card: XFX Radeon HD 5870
Current PSU: CoolerMaster Real Power M520, 520Watt
Current Motherboard: Intel DX58SO
Current Processor: Intel Core i7 960

Graphics card I just ordered: Asus HD 7970 DirectCU II
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-276-AS&campaign=pcm/googleshopping&pup_c=gs

If I need to buy a new PSU, is it possible of someone could link me to a recommended one?

Preferably from one of these links:

Thanks!! thumb.gif

Is the current 520w truely 520w? And what do you mean by Hungary? Hungry?

Someone recommended me http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182262&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Power+Supplies-_-Rosewill-_-17182262 but I can't order from newegg.

yes hungry like power hungry it needs 300watts alone so i suggest to get 700w so this way you know it has all the power you need

This is wrong.

Hashes, a good 500-550 watt PSU would be plenty for this system including overclocks, however I cannot comment on the quality of your current PSU.

It's poor by current standards, it's a rather ancient unit (launched in 2006-2007 iirc).

The 7970 draws a similar amount of power to my GTX570, and I also have a CPU that is of the same generation's as Hashes' which is overclocked to 4 GHz. From my UPS I draw at peak ~400 watts under load. Hashes should see similar load levels with his planned upgrade.

Edit: ty Sin!

I think it's enough.

I have a 750 watt, and it runs an i5, ASUS ROG motherboard, four RAM sticks, 24-LED light strip, six fans, CD/DVD drive, a sound card, two cross-fire Radeon 6950's, and about 10 USB devices.
I used to have an H100 on this, too.

But if you do need a new PSU, I'd recommend a Corsair AX650, or AX750 to be on the safe side.
