PSU for a GTX 260
 
Hi all,
I really want to get a GTX 260 and am wondering if my current PSU would be powerful enough to run it.My PSU is the coolermaster igreen 600w-I also have a quad core processor (q8200)and 500gb HDD.Will this run it or am I needing to get a different PSU?Thanks to all that reply.

I am also wondering what is the bare minimum required to run a gtx 260 or 275 card. I just got a new psu earlier this year because it was an unbelievable deal but it is only 500 watts.

A quality PSU should handle the GTX 260 fine. As long as it's not some questionable peace of junk that was rated for peak output in a freezer. Never put hardware you care about on cheap dirty power.

IMO a Coolermaster igreen 600w should be perfectly fine for the 260.

The draw for an i7 system @ 3.2GHz with a GTX 275 installed is listed below-

Those numbers are not card consumption only.

I ran one with multiple DVD+R's, 2 Satas on a Antec 650W at one point.
