I was told 450 or 550 will not have enough juice to support the card.. was thinking somewhere around 800 w or something... May be i am wrong

Nvidia Site say

Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 289 W

Minimum System Power Requirement (W) 680 W

Supplementary Power Connectors 6-pin & 8-pin

I have a Corsair VX 450 recently rmaed with 2 and half years of warranty pending. let me know if you are interested
VX450 will not have enough juice to handle a GTX295.

@iyengar look for atleast a TX650W or above.
I would say get a new one if you can spend something like 7.5k (for TX850W)

It is not only the graphic card which draws power from the PSU

You have to take into account all your items such as CPU, Motherboard, RAM, HDDs dvd roms etc. to arrive at the total power requirement

If you want a correct advice, give the complete list of your components & also if you OC them

not only the current components. You also need to keep in mind your future uogrades. Always keep some headroom so that future upgrades dont get limited by PSU or u need to change the psu.
Remember that GTX295 is actually a dual gpu card, so in reality you will be running SLI.

corsair vx550 should be able to handle your system provided you don't overclock and decrease the no of hard disks

What resolution do you game @?

your processor will bottleneck the card....games which are CPU intensive will still stutter even with GTX 295. High end card+Low end processor->reduced perfomance
Eg:GTA 4 :p,World in Conflict, MMO, RTS games will lag.

My advice
get a Phenom 955BE(+790gx/880 Mobo)+ HD 5870...and you have a balanced system. This config will play all games @ HD with MAx settings(alright with exception of a handful of games)

see,

ur not buying a new 295 (i think so ) ...

So,

why not buy a good proccy and a 5870 thats a better option and you will save some in the psu also..

5870 takes max 200w ... so thats a better buy..

Plus many 5870 ar up for sale..

Mine will also be on sale soon... :p

Yes I am not buying the card, but it is gifted to me by my friend who was using it.. for me its a giant leap from 8600 GT to GTX295

I hope you get my point.
