    Will this work


    At the moment I have a corsair520HX power supply running 2 external & 4 internal HD, with a Gigabyte GTX560, but would like to use a GTX760, would this power supply be fine, as the 760 only uses 20w more than my current card.

    I have seen plenty of reviews that say it needs a minimum of a 500w PS, but they also said that about my GTX560, so all right?

    GTX760 does require 500 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 30 amps on the +12 volt rail.

    Your Corsair HX520W Modular does not supply that 30A on 12 volt rail.
    See in pic. Plus more hardware you have on system,more power you are going to need. Have a number of hard drives also on system. Suggest a higher powered PSU, before buying this card at least go with 600-650W. Go to a PSU Calculator site too. Hope this helps you.

    Your most welcome. Always check the graphics card requirements before purchasing, as said take into factor number of other hardware you have, all will require certain amount of power.
