GTX670 with a 700W PSU?

My PSU is FSP 700W 80GHN. It shouldn't be a problem, right?

Gigabyte GTX670 2GB.

Thanks.

Edit:
My PSU has 4 rails of 12V. All are rated 18A.

Hello Major,

The GTX670 requires a minimum of a 500 W PSU as per the specs below, but it also depends on what the rest of your hardware requires in addition.

GeForce GTX 670 | Specifications | GeForce

If you like, the PSU calculator below will help you determine if your 700 W PSU will be enough for your system. You'll just fill out what you have, and it will calculate a needed wattage.

Hey Brink,

I used the calculator, as you said.
It's pretty weird.
It says my minimun power supply should be 390W.

My specs are shown in my profile if you'de like to check

I think it should support the GTX670. I just forgot how it's calculated via rail amperage.
Also giving the fact that my current GTX460 runs only on 20W lower than the GTX670 requires, I think it should be fine.

Thanks.

MajorG could you post a site that shows your exact power supply?

No sir,

I can't find it anywhere. FSP seems to change their product names or stopped making these type of PSU's.

All I can find, from a nativ website is this:

Quote:
Manufacturer Fsp
Power 700W
Active PFC
Power Output: 700 watts
Fan: 120mm
Connections: + 3.3V
+ 5V
+ 12V1
+ 12V2
+ 12V3
+ 12V4
-12V
+ 5Vsb
PFC: Active
Efficiency: 80+ BRONZE
And as I said. 4 12V+ rails with rates of 18A each.

Nope.
Mine is white with a white sticker and is classified as 80+ unlike this one.

Anything in particular you need to know about my PSU? It's all written on the sticker.
Unless you look for benchmarks or real life performance, there I can't really help.

GTX460 1GB to GTX670 2GB?
I can get a second handed Gigabyte 670 2GB for fairly cheap. Is it a decent upgrade? I know it's a bit foolish to ask.. But.. Any chance the GTX670 wouldn't be enough for GTA V? My PSU is FSP 700W 80GHN. It shouldn't be a problem, right? Thanks.
