650W enough for a GTX 780?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello my spec are in my Sig below but i'll post it again. I want to sell the 7950 to my friend and upgrade to a GTX 780. Will my Power supply be enough?

Its a Corsair CX600:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

I5 3570K 4.4Ghz
Asus Sabertooth Z77
G Skills Ripjaws 8GB 2x4
Radeon 7950 1100/1400
Hyper 212+
Corsair CX600
WD 500GB Green HDD

I have three 120mm Fans, one usb keyboard, one usb mouse and one usb Wireless adapter.

I ran a test on several power supply calculators and it said at max load i needed 500-530W so is 600W pushing it or should i be fine?

Not really trying to spend so much since the GTX 780 is costly. Of course if its absolutely needed i will purchase a new PSU. Was thinking of the Corsair HX850, i liked the design, color, specs and full modular sleeved cables.

Thanks! thumb.gif

It's enough no doubt, more than enough.


450w system max with a 3570k and GTX 780 with overclocks.

you should be good. I'm running 3 gtx 780 that are the asus direct cu2 models and any time i look at consumption its around 240w which is actually better than i thought it would have ever been.

Awesome! Thanks alot guys.

Decided to skip on the Next Gen consoles and take my pc to the next level. swapping the 500gb to a 2TB, getting a SSD and the GTX 780.

System should then be more than enough for single monitor 1080p gaming thumb.gif

Now that ive finally been gaming on a good PC, i can see why people spend more on them. It just looks and runs so much better then consoles. Just hate the limitation the consoles bring and the crappy ports.
