    A 4650? yes. It has no additional connectors on the card, so the max it can draw is 75W from the PCI-E slot itself, powered by the main 24 pin connector.

    I had a friend with a similar situation, and he said that he needed the required power for his. He didn't and it messed up his computer.

    Id the card has on power connectors, it can only draw 75w from the slot.

    Total power consumption varies based on the TDP of other components.

    Thanks, It's on nvidia's site now, I'll see what EVGA say about the minimum amperage.

    EDIT:

    GTX 560 Ti single card/sli figures added. Sli Figures are a "safe" guess for now until I can pull actual figures.

    So, I can't see the 6950, is it in the same range as the 6970?

    Oh good point I will add it now.

    EDIT: As of 9pm my time today, I will be gone for a week. Going to Melbourne to visit the grandparents. I most likely won't be online at all, but I think they have dialup.

    Hi, Building a new computer. Can someone recommend a power supply? Hoping to find some thing 650/800W and is quiet. And would like to stay under $100.00

    Updated prices on the recommended power supplies list.

    Remember if you have any issues or recommendations for the list don't hesitate to post or PM me with your thoughts.

    I have done some more editing today, mostly to improve the readability of the guide, fixed formatting and spelling errors and so on, and most notably un-centred the text.

    Please give me your thoughts.

    GTX 550 and GTX 550 SLI figures added.

    I think I should eventually add some tri-sli or crossfire-x figures eventually, what does everyone else think?

    How about a who makes what guide. You could list a good, better, best list of the actual makers then the next list would have for example XFX=Seasonic or whatever the case may be. At least for the ones that have all their stuff made by the same company then go from there. Sound like a good idea?
