Will this PSU work with my system?

Hello, I recently had issues with my PSU dying, and now am in need of a new one. I am considering Corsair's TX750 V2. It has more than enough cables, so that's not a worry. http://www.ebuyer.com/257233-corsair-tx-750w-v2-psu-80plus-bronze-certified-cmpsu-750txv2uk?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products&gclid=CPHdraG2h7cCFWbKtAodnUoAHQ

My system will mostly be;
Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
AMD FX6100 3.3ghz (may attempt overclocking in future)
A 1TB and a 2TB HDD connected by SATA
8GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GTX 660 Ti
A 80mm and 120mm case fans
and other small things such as a DVD drive.

The wattage should be fine as far as I can tell, the cables all seem fine, but I currently have no clue how Amperage works. I am currently making a concious effort to learn about PSUs for future reference, but would like someone with more knowledge to help me out so I can order it as soon as possible.

Also, when the new power supply is fitted, (will be moving from a cheap dual rail, and the TX750 is single rail) will I need to reset BIOS or anything, or will it sort itself? Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

  1. It's way more power than you need but it will work just fine. If your old PSU didn't damage anything just put the new one in and it will work

    as unksol says, it is more than big enough wattage-wise. If you are only going to be using one 660 Ti GPU, then you could probably go as low as a 450 Watt PSU, but since you state you may be overclocking in the future, I would get at least a 500-550 Watt PSU. However, if you are looking to SLI in the future and overclocking, then the 750 Watt is a good choice.
  3. That PSU is way more power then you need so yes it will be fine

    Yeah, must admit I'm a bit of a sucker for room for expansion. Thanks for the answers!
