The 7770 even consumes less watts than the 650ti by 4w while the 560 you linked consumes a whopping 220w. That's half the PSU and barely meeting 80% efficiency I wouldn't trust it powering a Fermi card.
lol, my PSU is Amazon.com: Diablotek DA Series 600-Watt ATX Power Supply PSDA600: Electronics
it has like 77% efficiency, thats why my power supply is 600 watts...
I prob should have just got a $50 500gb hdd instead of a 128gb ssd for $130 and used the difference to get a better power supply and graphics card, like atleast a 560 TI and a modular supply.
My PSU's wires barely reach the mobo to provide power and thats without the wire being twisted and turned. It has to go under my graphics card by a little hole, and even then it it is still bending the connector a little. Was my ssd worth it?
wow if I had bought an 1 TB HDD like I did now, I would have had $60 left over, dam I should have done that, I would spend $20 more on a PSU and $40-50 more on a gpu!
