Hi i am looking into buying either a GeForce GTX 560 Ti or the GTX 650 2GB Ti but i am worried that my 450w psu wont be able to run the GTX 560 Ti because i saw that it has higher power consumption and i really don't want to buy a new psu at the moment my money is a bit tight.

Thanx
 
If it's really a good one(full power delivery @good temps and from a quality brand), it can do for a 560 ti(cutting it close), the psu must have also two 6-pin pcie connectors.
If your psu doesn't meet the requirements above described, i recommend going with the 650ti.

That's the thing i have no idea what psu i have.

Will a gigabyte odin 470w or
GIGABYTE POWEROCK AX Series 500W meet the requirements?

I don't exactly know what the dual 6pin means

The GIGABYTE POWEROCK AX 500W specifications are:

(20+4)-pin Motherboard Connector 1
(4+4)-pin +12V CPU Connector 1
(6+2)-pin PCI-E 2.0 Connector 2
SATA Connectors 6
4-pin Peripheral Connectors 4
4-pin Floppy Connector 1
Info
AC INPUT 115Vac/230Vac 10A/5A 47/63Hz
DC OUTPUT +3.3V +5V +12V1 +12V2 -12V +5Vsb
OUTPUT CURRENT 13A 18A 20A 20A 0.5A 2A
32A
110W 384W
MAX COMBINED WATTAGE 500W

Does it indicate anywhere that i can use this psu? I might even be able to get the 600W one
 
408 watts at 12 volts(thermaltake one) does not seem bad to me.

BUT

It only seems to have 1 6 pin pci-e cable and a 4 pin cpu power cable and not the 8 found more often today.

Unless they have updated it to include those it may be interesting(many do NOT want to use adapters.). Can not recommend it despite have the power needed, it lacks in plugs
 
I want an image of the current power supplies sticker :)

I am running the 650 ti(less power then the 560 ti) on a 300 watt power supply...mwaaaaaahaaahaaaahaaaaa!!!

The 560 ti seems to hang right in with the HD 5870 power wise, not quite a lightweight. My 5870 system tends to hang in the 250 watt(at the wall) range on most games, but can get up to 360 or so with OCCT's power supply test
 
FSP is an OEM for many other companies as well. That thermaltake was a FSP power supply.

Seasonic makes many(but not all) of the XFX/Antec/Corsair units as well.

You may also find some decent OCZ power supplies as well.

Edit for your last post.

The 650 is slower, so it is up to you.

Check this review. Look at the games then see what you think. I got this card because it is QUIET and runs on my 300 watt power supply :)
