1000 dollar GPU and a 49 dollar PSU. Anyone else see a problem here?

While it could work, I don't think most of us think it's a good choice. My vote goes for the SeaSonic G550W. Corsair TX650W or XFX 650W is a good choice as well.

It will work without a problem.

Nvidia recommends a PSU with 600 watt and 42 amps on the 12V rail and yours got 46 amps on the 12V rail and 600 watt. The GPU itself roughly sucks 230 watt on stock.

Nvidia always recommend higher wattage PSUs than needed to make sure that their customers will encounter no problems, so the GTX 780 could actually run on much lower wattage PSUs that actually required. A lot of gaming desktop sellers are also selling configured systems with a GTX 780 and 500-550 watt PSUs. :)

I was thinking he said titan. 650 dollar gpu and a 49 dollar PSU do not mix. The PSU is the most important part of your rig

Seems as if you don't know much about hardware, that PSU does meet the requirements that Nvidia is recommending.

PSU is a very low tech piece of hardware.... It shouldn't cost much. Just because it doesn't cost much doesn't mean it doesn't work. By that logic, why would you put the cheapest gas you could find into a car that costs a lot more than a GPU?

You just keep on proving that you really have no clue about what you're talking about. The PSU is more than enough to run the GPU. The comparability of price doesn't justify the comparability of components.

There are different qualities of PSU's. Yes its low tech but the guts are what really matter. I wouldn't touch a builder series PSU. If i'm spending that much on a graphics card im stepping up my PSU to a Seasonic or the corsair professional series.

Why can't you understand that there are nothing wrong with that PSU? It is 80+ bronze certified, it has plenty of power, it has a single dedicated 12v rail.

Seeing you have a AX1200 proves your point, overkill all the way. You don't even use 5/8 of that power.
