    Hi, yes it can easily run it. If it had enough PCIe connectors, it has enough amps to run two GTX 670's, let alone a single GTX 660. However you don't have enough PCIe connectors to run two 670's, you should have enough to run two 660's (Because I think a 660 uses a single 6 pin).

    Your system would not be taking any more than 350-400W under load, so you have plenty of room to overclock and/or add another GTX 660, or add more HDD's/SSD's as you wanted to (Hard drives don't use much power.)
  5. Absolutely good brand off the start.

    also OP suggested a VS650, which is much DIFFERENT than the TX650 you linked.

    Thanks man for the great share of knowledge. i usually think that my psu VS650 is not enough but you made me think its not true.. another thing man, even i run my corsair h80i fans at 2600rpm is it ok? i have two enermax LED 120mm fans also..
  8. That is quite a bit high. Corsair has programs that allow you to dial down the speeds. Honestly, having it that loud isn't necessary.

    Go to download, download Corsair Link and install. Also, you could go to Bios and change fan speeds accordingly. Just make sure your CPU doesn't surpass 70-75 degrees celcius. Of course this depends on the CPU -- some lower end AMD cpu's have a max of around 60 degrees.

    i have this software already, i run it at 2600rpm because of hot temp here in my room, do you think it affects my gaming performance and my PSU wattage?
  10. Not by much. 120mm fans take a little bit of power, not much more than 10W.
