What graphics card should I use for a 500w psu?

Recommended Posts

I’d say maybe something like a GT 710 or similar (assuming your not rich)


MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710 2GB GDRR3 64-bit HDCP Support DirectX 12 OpenGL 4.5 Single Fan Low Profile Graphics Card (GT 710 2GD3 LP) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DOFD0G8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_2bluEb68G9H4Z

There's a ton of data missing here that would be needed to even begin to be able to answer this one.


-It this a white box system or a prebuilt?

-What CPU do you got?

-What kind of money can be spent, and on what nation will it be spent? (Important because pricing and availability changes by nation)

Assuming a white box system:

IMHO PSUs are cheap compared to graphics cards. Good PSUs are cheap compared to cheap graphics cards.  Worry about the graphics card first then the PSU


Assuming a prebuilt system: 

what amount of power and what cabling is on the PSU is critical.  For no cabling at all the most that can be put into a machine is a 1650.  If there is graphics card power cabling that can change, but the system power draw is still needed.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
