Default Re: PSU for a GTX 260

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.
