DELL XPS 8500 + GTX 760 SC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i'm new here. i was researching on google through many forums and i saw few interesting answers in this one and i registered so i can ask u guys this:
in October of the last year i bought a pc from DeLL, the XPS 8500, with nice specs, intel core i7 3770k, 8gb ram, 2TB HD SATA 3, PCI express 3.0, Chipset with USB 3.0. the problem was the video card, a geforce 640gt, i was really sad by paying a lot of money on that pc and couldn't handle games like BF3, GuildWars2 and Aion on ultra specs. so i waited untill this october (that is my birthday) to have an upgrade. i've just bought a VGA EVGA GEFORCE GTX 760 SUPERCLOCKED, and i'm very, very... VERY worried about the psu, i researched a lot to find out that DeLL uses a 460w psu and in many topics they say that it can't handle it, that everyone that bought this pc should buy atleast a 500-550w corsair psu and stuff... but my friend who know pretty much about the subject and is using the same vga, and reading some comments in few forums, i realised that new generations consume less, it's just not right to think of buying 800w psu's for future upgrades, and some tests prove that a full pc specs with a 760 just don't get near from using 400w, so i'm not from USA, and everything here in me country is VERY expensive, to spent a lot of money just to upgrade my psu from 460 to 500-550w after some research just don't seem worth it, but i'm asking if some of you guys are sure that it has 80-100% chances to fried my gpu and everything else.biggrin.gif
few links that i researched:
CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz
Hard Disk: Samsung 470 (256GB)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1867 4 x 4GB (8-10-9-26)
EVGA GTX 670SC 1.175v 1066MHz

And probably the power supply in my pc:

Welcome to OCN

As my first advice when you post here please start a new line after you have finished the last one

Your wall post is very hard to read for my eyes

Anyway a 460 watts PSU should be more then enough

Problem is can it do its rated wattage?

My guess is the PSU you have is a Delta PSU

Problem is i dont know what it is and if you dont know either then its not something you should keep

Unless someone else can tell you what it is and who its made by

Also if you did not know Corsair does not make PSU´s

ty for the advice ^^

many friends told me that the power supply in my pc would not reach the 460w and had a big chance of frying my gpu and other components, i solved the problem with my monitor and could save money to buy a new power supply, new 500w 80plus from Corsair biggrin.gif i think i'll be fine now, just waiting for the 760 SC and the 500w to arrive and max every game i have to play *-*

Anyway, Thanks for the reply thumb.gif
