im planning to buy a GTX 570 maybe this July. so that will be 2 months from now.. i know that GTX 570 will be old then but you cant blame my budget.. so my problem now is my PSU its a 600w genie... (not sure, don't have time to check my pc) +12v 48A.. (that's what i remember) as my friends say that "dude that thing can handle GTX 570" true, but it needs two 6 pins connectors.. and i don't see any 6 pin connector (or maybe i saw one 6 pin there but that's just it). so i have left with options, either find some unused port and use some adapters or buy a new PSU.. so now in my area, this is the only place where i can buy computer parts at the cheapest price.

as you can see there the currency is in PHP (1 US$ = 43.504742 pesos) well, i just need enough power to run the GTX 570. and no, i am not going to overclock it and no 4 way SLI. the power supply area is found at the second page top left area.... thanks

as of right now, that is the only available items in my area.. so help me out a little here as for i know little to none about PSU's.

note: they do update the site, that includes the stock, prices, etc..
 
think the recommended psu for gtx570 is 550w with 38a

and some gtx570 have one 6 pin and one 8 pin--my asus gtx570 does

it did come with molex adaptors to connect it to the psu

and it may be a slightly older card but its still a very good card at a good price nowadays

i havent had any problems playing recent games at high settings with mine at 1920 x 1080--though i do overclock mine

thanks.. 48A is well enough for gtx 570.. but ive made up my mind that i will buy a new PSU.. and give my old PSU to my nephew who has a faulty 350W PSU.. now which PSU shall you recommend given the site i posted in my first post? don't mind the prices, i can afford all of them.. thanks


EDIT: i have an i5 2320 CPU, now will my CPU bottleneck the GTX 570?

no that cpu is good

one last thing.. i want a modular PSU hybrid is ok but 100% modular is what i need.. my cpu tower is mid case and having less wires means better air flow.. so what brands can you recommend for modular PSU's?
