MSI N560GTX-Ti - Power supply question

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Planning on upgrading my graphics card to a MSI N560GTX-Ti with the standard OC and was just wondering your views on whether it'd mean I should upgrade my PSU at the same time. My reason for the upgrade is that even though with my recent changes to my PC, its having trouble with my 3D modelling work.

I'm not planning on OC'ing it further and it would be used for a mixture of my graphic design work (Maya, 3ds Max, Photoshop etc) and gaming (Crysis 2, COD: Black Ops etc, plus Battlefield 3 and SWTOR when they come out).

In the near future as well I will be upgrading my monitor and will likely be going down the 3D route also because I'm currently stuck at 1680x1050

The specs of what I'm currently running are in my sig and of course, if helped, Id want to spend as little as possible. If you guys do think there is the need to upgrade my PSU, what would you guys say is a good level to go up to and any recommendations would be great!

Gimme a shout if there is any further info needed and thanks in advance!

I wouldnt worry about it too much. Being that hx is way underrated from corsair and the 500 series nvidias are alot better on power than the 400 series were. I ran my gtx 570 on a coolermaster extreme 500w for a month or so before I got my hx. As for the 3d monitor route, wait. They still suck, well imo anyways. Ive used high end and low end as well, not worth the money yet. Still hard on the eyes after any period of time really. For 140ish you can get a full 1920x1080 led monitor that will help you out quite a bit....

I'm folding on both my the same CPU as you and my GTX 570 right now on my 550w so I would guess you would be okay but you might wanna ask the people in the power supply section here,because I don't know how your 3 12v rails with 18amp each compare to my 2 12v rails with 25amp each, but like I said I would imagine you would be fine even overclocking it.

Thanks a lot for the replies guys, always great info given here!

As a graphics card for what I mentioned Id be using it for, mainly the graphic design aspects as I already know its gaming capabilities, would you guys say it is a recommended upgrade or would there be a GPU around the similar price range that anyone would say is better?

Thanks again!

From what little I know about those types of workloads I believe they really like large amounts of VRAM, but I'm not too sure so hopefully somebody else will be able to confirm or deny that. If that is the case you may be best served by something like this Palit 560 2GB which would be a great option providing you didn't want to do a large overvolt overclock because it doesn't have any heatsinks for the VRMs.

Hope this helps.

Your system pulls just as much as mine, a little less due to the 560 only pulling 170w instead of 225w like mine does. (I has it overclocked. )

520w should be enough. Though I wouldn't overclock anything until you upgraded the PSU to something like a 600w. I mean, overclocked as I am, I pull around 550w from my PSU. My CPU pulls 121w max and my GPU pulls 225w probably. Keeping everything stock you should be perfectly fine. You could probably overclock a little, but get a better PSU just to be sure.

Thanks for the info man although in terms of Palit, how are they as a brand as I've not really heard much about them ?

Thanks as well for the reply, and about the OC'ing, I have already overclocked my CPU to 4GHz so would you then recommend upgrading the PSU to compensate for the proposed increase with the new graphics card anyway?

I don't have any personal experience with them as a brand so I can't really say. I know that they typically aren't held in the same high regards that ASUS, EVGA, and MSI are but I wouldn't read too much into that and I don't personally think it means as much as the quality of the card it self which is better or as good as reference design in many areas and only very slightly worse than the reference design in one area, the fact that it has no heatsinks for the VRMs so therefore I wouldn't recommend any serious overvolting on that card without adding some sort of VRM heatsink like these. The Palit is better than reference design in the area of CPU core cooling as it has two fans and what appears to be a slightly more efficiency cooler design and has the reference amount of power phases. Basically I would have no problem recommending this card for someone that is not looking for extreme overclocking, which you don't seem to be looking for, and it seems to me that it would suit your needs best out of the available options, because it's the only readily available 2GB 560. This is based on the assumption that the GPU workloads your looking at do like to have as much VRAM as possible which I believe is true but would like to have somebody confirm this before you make a decision based on it.

Let's say that you were looking for a maximum overclock on your 560 in that case I still don't think that the Palit would be a bad choice but you would want to just add some VRM heatsinks yourself like these. Basically if you can get someone to confirm that the programs you want to use will benefit from as much VRAM as possible then there is no reason not to get the Palit 560 2GB. If you'd like to learn more about the card check out this review from TPU, it is of the Palit 1GB Sonic but that uses the same PCB and cooler as the 2GB you are looking at, the only difference would be the amount of VRAM
