hey guys,

I just ordered a graphics card off the net, silly me never considered the power issue.

I started to watch a video on youtube about it and it says the card needs no less than a 500W power supply. (card is a GTX 760) and my power supply is a powercool 450W modular.

yet on the power supply there is the standard pins for sata etc and it has 2 8 pin slots and they are red and next to them it says for PCIE ??

will this psu be ok for moderate gaming??



thanks guys, RTJ
