    I'm looking to replace my old card with a Geforce GTX 660. My main concerns are about the reliability of my PSU to handle the card as the Huntkey brand has a dodgy reputation. I think it's a decent power supply for a Huntkey though. My PC specs are:
    Intel DQ45CB motherboard
    [email protected] ghz
    4 GB DDR 2 RAM

    and the power supply is

    Huntkey Max 700W APFC
    Watts: 700W
    Cooling: 1 x 120mm Fan
    Molex Connectors: 4
    SATA Connectors: 3
    PCI-E Connectors: 1 x 6+2 Pin
    dual & four +12V rails
    Product Code: HK700-52PP

    For all intents and purposes its a 600 watt PSU albeit of a questionable brand. This particular unit does seem reliable, however. I also read a couple of Russian reviews that rated it pretty solid. Please can I get a definitive answer as to whether this PSU will handle the GTX 660 and comment on how the GFX card will sit with the rest of my rig. The specific GTX660 is a Gigabyte with 2GB ram.

    GTX 660 or 660 Ti?
    If you're planning to run a single 660 or 660 Ti, 700w or generally if it's not reliable 600w is enough.. 660/660 Ti requires a 450w psu or higher, just make sure you plug in the 6 pin power connect to gpu
