I am looking forward to buy a brand new GPU called GTX 460 but I need help with some of my system specification. My specs are as follows.
Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 2.4 GHz Processor
- Mercury PNMCP73V Mother Board (Nvidia GeForce7050/610i chipset)
ST31000340AS Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3 GB/s 1-TB
ST3500410AS Barracuda 7200.12 SATA 3 GB/s 500GB
ST3250410AS Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0 GB/s 250-GB
- Dual Layer LG DVD Writer
- DDR2 RAM - 2GB
My Cabinet is Frontech with built in SMPS with only 450 Watts. Is this enough to run GTX 460? Should I need to buy a new PSU as well? What is the difference between SMPS and PSU? Can I use new PSU only for GTX 460? I am currently waiting for a good suggestion.
