I am going to be upgrading my pc and I was wondering if I could pull of a GTX 660 OC Direct 2gb with a OCZ StealthXtreme 500W power supply. I will also have a I5 3470, a 1tb hard drive, and 8gbs of ram

Thanks!

You should have no problem with that set-up.

You sure it would work with the OCZ psu because it was a pretty cheap one and they are lower quality power supplies

Your PSU's output exceeds the recommended minimum stated here: GTX 660 spec. Why do think there is anything wrong with OCZ PSUs?

I have the same graphics card, and it ran fine with a very basic 500W PSU before I upgraded it. You will have no trouble with the OCZ.

Ok well thanks then, the reason I thought so was because a lot of people say that OCZ is a lower tier compared to for example Seasonic or Corsair which are more expensive
