www.jonnyguru.com does reviews of a ton of power supplies. See if yours is on his list and see what he says about it.

I would not use it personally. Gigabyte makes very good products but like most power supply sellers they don't actually make power supplies. They just rebrand them. That model is made by AcBel Polytech and they are known for junk.

Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec or the higher efficiency Rosewill models for quality.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 680 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 550 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors or one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors depending on brand and model of the graphics card.

For a system using two GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 750 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 53 Amps or greater and that has at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors or two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors depending on brand and model of the graphics card.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated @ 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) will require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

The GIGABYTE GreenMax 750W (GE-X750A-C1), with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 59.8 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 680 graphics card.

It is also electrically sufficient to power your system configuration with two GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode but it is deficient by two PCI Express supplementary power connectors so you'll have to resort to using a couple of dual 4-pin Molex peripheral to PCI-E power connector cables. There isn't a whole lot of spare capacity available for overclocking an SLI rig.
