Windows 7: Can my PSU support this rig?

Can my PSU support this rig?

What should be the minimum power supply for an intel i5 2500k and a sapphire radeon 6770? Right now I'm running a Corsair 600x power supply.

Should be plenty, assuming it's of decent build quality.

Corsair subcontracts its PSUs to other manufacturers and I don't know who makes that particular Corsair model. Corsair sometimes uses good manufacturers like Seasonic and sometimes uses middle of the road outfits like Channel Well and Flextronics.

A quick Google says that card uses a max of 108 watts--I don't know if that's accurate.

I have an i5-2500 CPU system with 3 hard drives and no video card---it never uses over 150 watts when pounded hard, including the monitor.

So, if 108 watts is accurate for the video card, you probably would never use above 300 or so. In which case a good 500 watt PSU would be fine.

Your card call for a min. of 450w. I never recommend minimum. You will work the minimum power supply to hard. If your 600 W Corsair has the proper connection you should be fine.

More then enough especially with a quality Psu

If you were running two 6770's then there would be room for concern but you are good as gold

I ran a dual HD 6870 on a 700 watt cooler master im sure you can do great with what you have
