I currently have a 500 watt PSU running a GTX650.


My friend is selling me his GTX780 for £100 which i am going to buy off of him.

I was curious if i could run that on my 500watt psu, on the site it asks for a minimum of 600watt but im not sure if i could run it until i can upgradeas i currently dont have the money to upgrade my psu and buy the card at the same time.



When i have the card i will be upgrading my PSU to this:

I would never go cheap on a power supply, I would recommend a strong single 12v rail psu. I suggest a known brand such as corsair, evga, ocz, antec. I have used all of those brands and have had good luck. Corsair has been one of the best for me personally and they have a good warranty.


It looks like any standard power supply should fit into the case.
