Can I use a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 OC 1GB with a 380W Power Supply?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm trying to build a really cheap gaming computer (<$500) and I'm wondering if the Antec NSK3480 Micro ATX Case with 380W PSU will be able to handle a GTX 650 and an i3 3220 CPU. I know Nvidia has rated that card as needing a minimum PSU wattage of 400.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I've never build my own PC, so I'm guessing there's no way for the GPU to detect that the PSU isn't meeting it's minimum requirements?

If you overload your power supply, your computer would probably shut down or the power supply would explode (or cause a house fire biggrin.gif).

An i3 uses 50-60w, and a GTX 650 uses 60-70w. As such, there's no reason to worry about using a 380w PSU for such a configuration.

Thanks for the replies guys.

One more question:

After reading reviews, I might be better served going with a 650 Ti, and I was looking at a Galaxy GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB. From what I've seen, the 650 Ti uses a lot more power, though for this particular card the required power is still 400W (most of the other cards I saw had a minimum of 450).

Any idea if this card is viable with this PSU?

Thanks!

The 650 Ti (non-BOOST) uses ~110w, so it's still fine.
