Default Re: GTX260 PSU and Hear Concerns

You are pushing it if you have not had any lock-ups or game frezzes then you are lucky ,because the new desighn og the GTX260 needs a lot of power to be stable ,plus the more you overclock your Q6600 the better frame rate you will get .You should be able to get 3gigs out of that Q6600 with little problems and you will notice a increase in games .Make it easy on your self and just get a Thermaltake ToughPower 450watt express .It will silde in a unused DVD slot and it is just used for the cards power ,it adds 37amps to your system and you want have any problems.You can overclock without any worries.Some say it will blow hot air in your case ,but it does'nt even get warm.The best thing about it ,is that it is just $69.99 and it adds 37 amps to the 12 rail.It actually has enough power to run two GTX260's in SLI.I have seen people use it with two GTX280's in SLI and it worked fine.
