I currently have a 450W PSU with a GTX 760 and i5-4670k. Im upgrading to the 970 in a couple days and would rather not upgrade my PSU. Recommendations?? Thanks
you're fine. really.
that is a good psu (seasonic tier 2)... you can use it, but it would not be a good idea to overclock....
ya its the seasonic 80+ Gold 450W. i don't overclock at all. Thanks
It depends on which GTX 970, the Gigabyte G1 uses as much power as a R9 290.
i bought the MSI Gaming GTX 970
He still will probably be fine. Although he is cutting it close, I've seen people use GTX 780s and 780 tis on 450W units, and the GK110 chips use around ~250W under full load.
Check the watts required for PSU.
