Best GPU for under $500 - Page 7

post #61 of 93
Im sorry to hear your not interested in sli/crossfire.
And yes you can run it, but your psu would alway be at 80 - 100% capacity which will only shorten life expecting.
I built a rig with customer supplied parts. It was a corsair bronze 80 + 450 w psu and a gtx 780 it work well until overclocking then it would run hot and it was dead in just over 6 months.
I had another build with a gtx 760 and a 450 bronze it would shut down randomly when running high overclocks in demanding games, the heat produced was crazy. I took the psu apart after a couple months the coating on the windings where all melted, but it still worked. Actually it is still in use in a small pc i7 860 with an amd hd 5770.
Anyways good luck.

Which corsair bronze ? What was the rest of the set up? The Power supply was probably faulty.

Not all power supplies are made equal, and if it's a 450-watt Corsair Bronze PSU from a "customer" like you said, that means it was used. Power supplies degrade overtime, so that could explain your issues.

A newer 450-500 watt Silver or Gold rated PSU from Corsair or other high-end manufacturers would be able to run that setup no problem.

Exactly why my gold rated Capstone would laugh at it. biggrin.gif

it was an hx450 i believe with i7 3770k and a gtx 780 (evga i think) 2 WD 2tb, dvd cd rw, and a cool master tower style air cooler with one cpu fan and 3 or 4 case fans and I think it had some led strip lighting running. he ran a keyboard mouse and speakers with usb but say s he didnt use them for charging any devices, not that that would cause much power consumption. Normally I try to add 100 watts to the recommended wattage requirements so your not always running at peak. I use a few different calculators take the avgerage and add 100 and thats what i recommend.
But thats just my opinion and in the world of computers everyone has there own. This is one i use

I am not saying his capstone won't work. I am just saying cards like 780 and that with all other components are required to have bigger psu s than 550w. And customer supplied in this case was he brought me brand new components in there boxes and i put it together and set it up. Like i warned that customer, I am just warning him that using that psu at peak 24/7 overclocked ( i would imagine seeing how this forum is overclocker.net) will shorten life expectancy. IN my opinion.

the asus 760 is around 269 -299 depending on where you live but some score are better than titan.

sounds like my other rig except its an 8320 & MSI 760 twin frozr, and agree those things really do work nice as a pair smile.gif

Some of you guys are missing the point.

Good luck running 2 cards on a board with 1 PCIe slot....

SFF is why I would go with a blower card (and I did, even though I'm just uATX), and the 780 has a better reference cooler.
