Default Re: GTX 460 Power Req.

Bear in mind, the fan on the PSU can get loud under load, and it will probably die after a while. That PSU got to the point where it was finicky about when it would turn the computer on. That did it for me, so I replaced it with an awesome 750-watt corsair unit.

Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did.
Thanks a lot. Will post how it goes when I get the GTX 460.
