Default Is this power supply good enough

Hey HardwareCanucks

I was wondering if the BFG 550W will support the EVGA gtx 460 768mb video card?

NCIX is offering a discount for the power supply if you buy the video card would that mean the power supply would support the video card?

It's fine, you just are limited to a one year warranty on the psu with NCIX seeing as BFG no longer is doing RMAs of any sorts now so if your psu goes ass up after a year look to be shelling out money to buy a new one

The GS-550 is a low-end Topower PSU. I do not recommend it. I suggest that instead you go with this PSU and pricematch it at Neweggg:
NCIX.com - Buy Seasonic S12II 620W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 80+ Bronze 6+8PIN PCI-E W/ 120MM Fan - S12II 620 In Canada.
Newegg.ca - SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
