Difficult to look at the moment as using phone to view posts.
Think I need to do more reading about pros and cons of Nvidia/AMD.
I like Nvidia Experience, but I don't need shadow play. I don't want driver issues. I also want to stay well within my PSU capabilities. I want very low temps and very low noise. I also want a card that will play all games well regardless of who they are tuned for. And I don't want to spend over £170. I also want decent build quality.
Well if thats the case then you have nothing to worry about in terms of straight up power usage. Even if you had the most power hog CPU and system right now you would still be perfectly fine running any of the GPU's mentioned. Power usage is sometimes blown out of proportion when talked about and sometimes the constant mentions of one or the other using more power is blown up along with power requirements for a system.

With a 600watt psu even though it's only 80+ rated (after reading its base specs to make sure) you could run a pretty heavy system with it without fuss.

Let's say you are running a gaming rig that is a pretty heavy hitter (i7 and what not). An i7 3770k (just picked this CPU random) uses 140 watts roughly under load. Then include the motherboard, ram and hdd which on average would bring the use to around 200 watts depending on components and what not. Using that as just a basic rough estimate let's say we play safe and assume an extra 50watts headroom (for just in case scenarios and overclocks) that is still just 250watts.

That would mean mixing your psu in that machine would leave 350 watts laying around if we said your PSU could run at 600watts constant. Of course you would not want to do that but you should get the idea. My numbers are very rough btw, I'm just basing it off of know and average power consumptions I have seen measured.

So over all what I'm getting at is that you have plenty of room for an even higher GPU even. Heck I saw a rig built recently using a 500watt psu and an R9 290.

But just in case you want to see for yourself here is an example system load comparing total power usage of the same system only swapping video cards

You can see that truthfully computers do not need as much power as sometimes people are lead to believe.

Of that entire review, not one game listed (AMD or Nvidia titled) did the 760 come out ahead. I also have linked more than 4 different sites and reviews...


? How much is to much on power consumption for you and what is holding you back? The R9 280 pull about 10-15 watt difference on average (depending on where you look) so I am confused?

Could you explain what is holding you back because you have plenty of power from your PSU? I just would like to understand so we can all give you better suggestions based on that because I am just a little confused what you consider to be to much.

OK look I appreciate everyone taking the time to give their advice and opinions. But earlier today I pulled the trigger on an MSI GTX 760 TF OC Gaming Edition.
Probably not a popular or maybe even sensible choice with the people that have posted.
But thanks anyway. Hopefully it will still be a decent card. Paid £169. Annoyingly its gone up just over £10 in the last few days.
Thanks again.

In the end it comes down to if you are happy. My choice of car seemed a little wild at the time of purchase but ever since I bought, I couldn't imagine not having one.

Have fun with it!

In the end if your happy then you should not worry because you are satisfied with your purchase. We only wish to provide you as much information as possible.

Similar is not the same or better. Plus picking one site when I have linked multiple sites and multiple reviewers all come to the same conclusion which is the 280 is more powerful.
