    If you have the funds, go for the 760, your PSU will support either
    one of your choices, but not two in SLI. To do either of those GPU's
    in SLI you will need to upgrade your PSU. A quality 650w unit will run
    a sys with two 660's in SLI, a Quality 700w for two 760's in SLI.

    my psu has only 1x6 pin so is that a problem?

    The 660 requires only 1 - 6pin, the 760 requires 2, you could use a
    molex to pcie adapter, but I wouldn't recommend it with that
    CM 500w model. That psu does deliver 500w, tho it's noise and
    ripple levels are too high.

    Actually the noise & ripple issue are for a diff cm550w unit.

    There is no trusted review of this, but it does have enough +12v amps
    to run the sys with a 760. So, if you want to get the 760, you need
    to also get a molex to pcie adapter (some vid cards include one)

    You won't have room for heavy OC, mild OC should be OK.

    Hi - means it's OK to use that PSU for a 660 as it has one pcie connector,
    or for a 760 if you get a molex - pcie adapter for the 2nd connector a 760 requires.

    Some video cards even include one in the box, but if you have to
    purch one, they are pretty cheap.

    what? why friend? i was suppose to buy gtx 760 tommorow with molex connector
    so what should i do?
  12. Wait till you have a quality PSU.

    I disagree - even tho I don't care for a molex/pcie connector,
    you have enough +12v amps to run your system with that PSU.
    You need 30 +12vamps, you have 34 or 37 depending on which thunder
    500 you have. You can run a 760 with that PSU.


    That's why these connectors exist.

    yes thats what i was thinking i think i should give a try with this psu with no oc nothing.

    Yes, give it a try. If you have the exact madel # of the PSU, post it here.
    If you have the model with 37 +12v amps (vs 34), then I'd see no
    reason why you couldn't oc as well.

    Also, double check the cables coming from the PSU, there is some confusion.
    realhardtecx listis only 1 pcie connector for the 34amp (+12v) version,
    but the only review I found of it lists two pcie connectors.
    The 37a +12v model is showing 2 pcie connectors as well.

    Hi again - that is the 34amp model (408/12=34), and the specs say 1 pcie
    connector. You can visually check, odd that the one review of it lists it
    as having two, but you can visually check easily. Might save you a small
    amount of money if you don't have to buy the adapter.

    It's built by CWT, and tho not a top quality unit, Coolermaster has a
    lot worse PSU's (I had one) in their lineup, and this one will support your system
    with a gtx 760. I wouldn't OC tho.
  19. hi! your psu have the minimum requirement for a gtx 760 , of course its enough but..... if in the near future you want to try a sli configuration ...
    well.. your better have a 750W psu , corsair psu are good maybe 100$ and 260$ for gtx 760
    this is a around 400$ budget so your ok!

    hope it can help you?
