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:

Also i am currently using a Galaxy gaming case (bad i know) will that PSU fit?

 

my case : http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/cases/cases/galaxy3.html

 

i think everything else is ok i have:

16gig DDR5 Ram

1 Terabyte HDD ( no ssd sadly )

this is my motherboard:

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.
