That power supply is not suitable or capable enough for use with that 1660 ti. It would be a poor decision to do so. You need a better unit, or would at least be VERY wise to get one.

It'll work, it's got the rated wattage and amperage on the 12v rail. That's not really the question though, the Real question is 'For how long?' before you start getting all kinds of bsod, errors, blackscreens etc.

The biggest problem with that unit is that it is a VERY old platform, released in about 2009, so about 12 years ago, and the fact that it was actually ok-ish when new, for what it was, doesn't count for much considering that it is likely between 10-12 years old now depending on when it was purchased.

Since the manufacturer believed it was only going to be reliable enough for five years, it is now at least twice past that. If you value your hardware you will not use this power supply with ANYTHING you would be upset to see damaged, in the event that were to occur. It's not that the unit itself can't support that graphics card, because if it had just come off the production line it likely could even though it is such an old platform and doesn't even have an EPS 12v connector in order to plug into any modern motherboard, it's the fact that it is way to old to be trusted with your hardware.

You can buy a 60 dollar power supply or you can take a chance on having to replace your 275.00 graphics card or motherboard.
