Can i Run GTX 1660ti with a 450w 6 pins connector ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Dear everyone,

 

As i have a very limited budget to upgrade my Gpu, i'm asking if my 450w PSU can run GTX 1660ti with only 6 pins connector ? should i buy an adapter ? or should i change completely my PSU ?

this is the link to my psu : https://www.conrad.com/p/lc-power-lc600-12-v-231-pc-power-supply-unit-450-w-atx-no-certification-1606218

Thank you

No, you need a good quality PSU.

 

The one you have is not good at all, it's a PSU shaped object.

 

If you can buy a 1660Ti then you can buy a good PSU to run it.

Oh god, why, just why?!

A real 400W like Pure Power 10 or System Power 9 would have been better.


That PSU is really not good.

I had a bad LC-Power psu and it ran for a year in normal use (didn't die, i just replaced it, its still in my new psu box), so it's atleast not TooQ tier shit

Let me check my LC-Power PSU which i had in my system for a year before realizing that's absolute garbage to see the amps it delivers

Yeah, it has 400W on the 12V, when advertised as 550W.

as i see the reactions, i think that i need to change my PSU asap.. but i think it can handle my actual configuration, i use it since 8 months or more (TUF Gaming Plus H310 + I5-8400 + 2*8GB RGB RAM + Asus Cerebus GTX 1050 Ti)  

When i will buy the new Graphic Card i will upgrade my PSU too.

Thank you for help, appreciate it :)
