Hi Guys. I wish to install an Asus ENGTX560 TI DC11 I have been given to replace my 9600GTX. My power supply is 420 watts. Is this sufficient for the replacement card?

Input your system specs here http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator and it'll tell you.

I'd say probably as long as it's a good 420W supply. 9600GTX is listed as 140W max power usage and 560Ti is 170W so it is a jump in power consumption in theory.

maybee, possibly not, also consider that some Power Supplies ratings arnt realistic (ie they lie)
You'll also need to make sure it has the right connectors, and can deliver the required Amps to those connectors

From the website
Power Consumption
up to 225W2 additional 6 pin PCIe power required

Be nice to your system, put in a descent PSU :p

Thanks guys. It looks as though the 420W is marginal, so I had better look at installing a 500-550W supply.
