I suppose youd be fine but you should never be maxing out on wattage personally id go with a 650 its not too expensive and would be more than sufficient

With a newer gpu like a 1060 I would say no problem but depending what else you have going on with the older 750 ti you may have an issue I think it recommend 500w

The 750Ti is much more low power than the 1060. Both could run on a 350W PSU.

300 watts for a 750Ti paired with a 3770K would even be more than sufficient...

 

650 is more like... dual 970's and 5960X...

Read the article. They turn off power saving features and stress only the graphics card to figure out how much power it draws.

You should be fine but instead get a RX 460 which is better for the same price and same power (some have 6-pin connectors, get one that doesn't if your PSU doesn't have a 6-pin PCI-E connector)


We have a NEW and GLORIOUSER PSU Tier List Now.

It doesn't. The required PSU thing is always waaay too much, 350W is more than enough.

450W would be more than enough. A GTX 1080 and I7 6700k could get away if they weren`t overclocked, but definetly a 550W PSU. Seems like it should be more than enough, although I would reccomend waiting for the GTX 1050 or getting a GTX 950 on sale. If those seem like too much of a price go for an AMD card, RX 460 or 470 will have simmilar performene to the Nvida ones.

I checked on amazon , it says i have to "Global import" it. and there are 3 different versions with varying prices , am confused :(

So i checked the rx 460 and it sits almost outside my budget , do you know anything about its 6 pin external power supply ?  can i use those molex to 6-pin to power it up ?

 

 

and can i use it with my old pci x16 Graphics slot ?

 

Any suggestions are always welcome :):)
