So over the Christmas break I acquired a new graphics card, the Zotac Geforce GTX 660 ti. I have installed it correctly and it is wired correctly but it is having power shortages. Using a benchmarking tool I saw that it was only getting 34% power. My power supply should be able to handle it easily as the card has a minimum of 450w and the PSU supports 700w. Any speculation why it's not getting enough power?


Here's the specs:


Windows 8 Pro (64 bit)

Intel® Core i7-3770k CPU @ 3.5 GHz


Zotac Geforce GTX 660 ti graphics card

700w Cooler Master power supply.

Most likely the benchmarking software being used is converting the current power output being used into percentages. I'm not an engineer qualified on the intricacies of output and draw on certain components but these might help you understand generally about Power Supply outputs.
