Will my MSI GTX 760 work with 500W PSU?

Greetings,

 

I own a 500W AEROCOOL Power Supply (80+ Bronze) and I recently bought a new MSI 760 Twin Frozr Graphics Card.

 

I was wondering if 500w is enough as this is the Twin Frozr version.

 

please help! 

 

Thanks,

Daim

It is not about the wattage, but the power supply quality.

500w is enough, but the psu seems sketchy, never heard of it before. Atleast it doesn't seem to be a switching power unit.

Does it have the correct pcie power cables?

 

I only see your reply if you @ me.

It is rated 80+ bronze. Do you think that’s alright? My psu has a 6pin cable, whereas the gpu has 6+8 but I’m pretty sure an adapter can solve that.

If your psu is "500w" but doesn't have 2x (6+2) cables, then that is a red flag for me. A decent 500w psu has 2x, maybe even 4. So i wouldn't trust that psu, especially with an adaptor. What would you adapt anyways? molex to pcie?

So if I have 6+2 and 6 then it should be good to use?

If your psu has all the required cables with no need for adaptors, then it should be fine yeah.

Yeah 500W is plenty, but you should get a better built PSU anyway

It has 1 pcie connector, but your graphics card needs 2. Technically you could somehow go from molex to pcie, but i wouldn't do it.

I only see your reply if you @ me.

80+ ratins is rather irrelevant.

 

if your PSU doesn't have the proper connectors I recommend agains using adapters, I mean there are decent units for $20 if you live in the US.

Is it the Aerocool Integrator?  If it's the Aerocool Integrator, you might as well throw it in the garbage right now.
