Default PSU + GPU question.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151058

Have this Seasonic 300W SFF PSU in my HTPC. Currently using a GT 240, wondering if the PSU is adequate to handle the GTX 460 from my other box.

Pertinent info:
+12V1 8A
+12V2 14.5A

See sig for other components.

Thanks!

Ummm, it might be but I wouldnt personally. Its probably ok but thats like the bare minimum requirement heh.

Get a Kill-A-Watt meter and see what its at with the GT 240. :p

You should consider GTX 550Ti, GTS 450 and GTX 640. All good cards, all with lower power draw.

Probably not a good idea.
