Is HX520W enough to power GTX260 OC 2?

Will the HX520W be enough to power the BFG GTX260 OC 2?

I'm having some issues powering my card. The card just does not turn on. Not even the fan on the card. Everything else in the system seems to power up. BFG said the I might be 5W short to run it but I have read others have no problem. Right now I only have a HDD hooked up with 3 120mm fans running. This is a Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU. I don't think it's being overloaded at all. Now I don't know if it's the PSU or GPU.

The HX520 should have plenty of power for your system and a single GTX260. The GTX260 only draws a max of 182 watts, so that leaves plenty of room for the rest of the system. I would test the card in a different system and see if you have similar problems and if so, then I would have the card replaced.
