Msi gtx 660 with seasonic 500W eco series

sorry in advance if my writing is grammatically incorrect, not my native language.

my gtx 660 said that it requires minimum 12V current rating of 24A. my psu said:

DC Output voltage: +3.3V +5V
Max Load : 24A 24A

and yeah, i don't even know how to read that number on the first line.
does my psu have enough power to run the gpu? because i noticed the required Ampere and the availability from the psu is the same. and what about the power for the rest of my rig.

Thank you for your attention

Looks like the PSU is spec'd at 34A at +12V. That's good.

I didn't find any mention online of a PCI-E power connector, so you might have to use a Molex to PCI-E power adapter (usually supplied with the card).

Hi, welcome to the forums.

Do you have a link to your exact PSU?

24A at +3.3V, 24A at +5V, 34A at +12V, etc. The +12V one is usually the most significant. Check the label again, if you like.

See the attachment. It's the label from a different Seasonic model. Note the 38A at +12V.

If it has a PCI-E power connection, that would be good.

It is not enough power supply. Don't cheat you video card out of a proper quality power supply.
