Can I run a 7990 without a problem with my power supply?
I currently have a Corsair TX750w 80+ Bronze power supply. I plan on getting a HD 7990 by next month.I will be selling my current card to my friend as he is building a new PC around the time I buy the 7990. I just need to know if my PSU is suitable enough to handle running this card.

I would go for at least 850w
if im not mistaken, this has 2 8-pin? around 350w max? in that case then a 750 should be ok i believe
I should have stated that it was the official Radeon HD 7990 6GB version I was talking about. That is an example link^.
Anyone? I proved the link to the exact card.
It saids a minimum of 850w.
According to this PSU calculator it should work however it will be close. This is a rough estimate but should give you a good general idea. I think these power supply calculators take lower quality supplies into consideration. You are using a good supply so it should be able to handle fine under heavier load.
