Concerned whether Antec TP - 550 PSU will support GTX 770 load.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I'm upgrading my PC in the relatively near future and these are the components i'm upgrading to (the rest are staying):

Intel i5 3570 3.4GHz
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair 1600MHz memory
Gigabyte B75M-D3H MoBo
Gigabyte SUMO Alpha mid tower case (comes with front and rear 12cm cooling fan)
Possibly redundant info:
I've got a Samsung SSD + a 1TB and a 500GB HDD

My PSU is a 550W Antec TP 550 80+ Bronze efficiency n all that. I've had it a couple years.

This is the 770 I'm looking at:

This one being preferred for its price, but I trust them less in comparison to Gigabyte. The few newegg reviews said it gets pretty hot under load too:

Just unsure whether the Antec 550, primarily with the Gigabyte's cooling system "3x windforce 450W" will make the PSU poop its pants, or be in danger of that happening.

that antec TP 550 is a great PSU and will handle either card fine:
