Extra power for my gpu ?

Hello people,

I have a Proliant DL380 G6 and I want to build a GPU into it. To be specific, it is a GTX 960 from ASUS. I am not shure if my 2x460 W power supplys can handle that much. Do you think this is ok or do I need more power ? If yes, how should I do that ?

Re: Extra power for my gpu ?

as per the GPU specs - 

GeForce GTX 960 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 400 ~ 450 Watt power supply unit.

Hence i believe the Server Power capacity (2 x 460W)of the server  should suffice. Again it will depend on the exisiting power consumption of the server.
