Can a 620W PSU run gtx 470?
 
Hey HWC

post a system spec you will get better advice :)

Yes.

See power consumption graph here: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-29.html
Max of 354 watts on an overclocked i7 system. IIRC Nvidia recommends a 550w PSU minimum.

yes....if its a quality PSU you will have no problem. Even a cheap 620w should run it, but I would not risk a 470 on a junk PSU.

I'm surprised that nobody has asked the obvious question yet, but which 620W PSU is this?

Hopefully they are referring to the Cosair HX620 Power supply! It is a quality built power supply by Seasonic.

In that case, it will be quite enough.
