Will my PC be able to run this card at its full potential ?

hi, I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to things like Graphics Cards and stuff like that on PC so I have no idea if mine is capable of running this card to its full potential. My PC is a FreshTech AMD A8, link here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Freshtech-F2A68HM-HD2-Motherboard-Performance-Barracuda/dp/B00PB20XR2/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1440709854&sr=8-6&keywords=gaming+pc, and I want to get a new card for it. I've been looking at the GTX 760 but I don't know if I my PSU will be capable, if I have enough Amps or if my computer can handle it, any help would be appreciated.

  1. "500 Watt Power Supply" should do it --- if it has 2x6-pin power connectors for the video card.
  2. It looks like a 500 watt PS is enough for that card.

  3. I have a 500 watt PSU in my computer but I think it only produces 22A and the cards minimum requirements are 500 Watt and 30A. Is it not a good idea to run it or will it be ok ?
  4. Good question, you might need to ask them directly at this point: http://www.freshtechsolutions.co.uk/customer-support
  5. I got a reply from them saying that its too powerful for my PSU and that it will void my warranty, they said the best gaming card I can get for such a low powered PSU is the GTX 750Ti. Is that any good of a card ?

    yes, i would suggest a gtx 950 though if you have the budget.


    it only needs a single 6-pin cable from your power supply and is very efficient.
  7. Looking at the link it states there are no PCI-e 6pin cables. The options are to get a 750Ti that runs only off power from the board or buy a new PSU and get whatever you want.
