I need help with my GTX GeForce 650 ti!
My brand gpu is not playing games. Whenever I try to load up anything graphically intense it becomes quite loud and then force shutdowns. The 650 needs at least 400watts and my power supply is 400watts so maybe I should upgrade? Please let me know if you have a solution. Thanks

I'd say that's correct. Get at least an 800w so you're alright for the future. (It won't USE 800w! It's just that if your system needs 600w for example at peak power use, then it can deliver it with confidence.) :)

subliminalvibes, your advice may be fine for someone with a high end rig and high end video card but for the op is beyond silly. a gtx650ti uses like 70-75 watts max under full load so depending on the rest of his components he likely does not use more than 200-225 watts for full system. op you need to list ALL of your other components and the exact power supply that you have because just saying you have a 400 watt psu means nothing at all. it could be a no name pos that is not even capable of 200 watts on the 12v line in real world conditions.

trek554, that's totally incorrect. I have no idea what universe your Google is getting its answers from... Liam, GTX650Ti's use about 150w Your CPU probably uses up to 95w - 100w Fans and RAM and the Motherboard? I'd say even if they use 50w - 80w are taking your 400w limit pretty close to the Line. The less stress you can put on any component is best. (Even a 200w PSU doesn't like running at 180w for a long time, in the same way a 1000w PSU wouldn't like running at 950w for any extended period of time.) I understand what Trek554 is saying about us not necessarily being someone running a high-end Rig, and I know how frustrating it is to have to keep buying parts when you're working hard for your money. But that's what happens. I started off with a rig like yours! Good luck Dude. Try a 600w PSU. :)

@ Subliminalvibes, man you have no idea what you are talking about. The Gtx 650ti has a TDP of 110w and under normal use only pull around 90w - 100w! Whatever cpu he is using, be it i5 or Core 2 Quad series or Core 2 duo or Amd Cpu, most have a Tdp of 95w but rarely use more than 75w ( the tdp of sandy bridge cpu's also include the power draw of the integrated graphics of the Cpu. A full atx sized gaming motherboard + fans might pull max 80w but normal atx / micro atx boards will only hit 40max. On my previous system I was pulling 290w on a full Core 2 quad + Gtx 460 (tdp 150w) system on load. So 400w will be perfect, maybe his PSU just can't produce the required power. Which we won't know unless the PSU model is revealed.

It could also be heat issue, he did said "becomes quite loud and then force shutdowns." the loud sound could be from an abnormal fan spins. Check your GPU (and also CPU) temperature, how hot did it gets?

subliminalvibes, again the OP's system would use about 200-225 watts max so its asinine to say he needs an 800 watt psu. of course now you have lowered that to 600 watts which is more sensible but still way more than what he needs. and you obviously fail at using google or looking at reviews so I will help you out. here you can see a full system with gtx650ti and even 3960x i7 at 4.3 is only using just 250 watts at the wall in Metro 2033. that means about 215 or so actual watts being needed there and the op probably has a cpu that uses way less power. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6359/the-nvidia-geforce-gtx-650-ti-review/19

Yep. I apologise. I was trying to help but accidentally quoted 650Ti power consumption, instead of the 650. I'll stick to asking questions instead of answering them. Sorry for the confusion.

everything I said and linked to was about the gtx650ti not the plain gtx650. look at my sig as even my on oced gtx660ti and oced 2500k system has never pulled over 300 actual watts even during heavy benchmarks. in very demanding games and benchmarks I usually hit about 300-315 max at the wall which is less than 275 actual watts. I do have a 650 watt psu because it was on sale and its good to have plenty of wiggle room. I also used to have a gtx570 in this system which used a lot more power.
