Hello,


I've recently bought all of the components for my new build.
Specs are:
AMD FX-8350
8GB Ram
Motherboard (Cant remember model)
1TB HDD
disc drive
And a PSU, This one here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/CiT-750W-Power-Supply-Rails/dp/...
Now my question is will it run an AMD 7870 or a GTX 660?
Does it have enough AMPS?
I'm fairly new so simplified terms please!
Josh

Thanks for the replys, I know it might not be a quality on but i have it now so im wondering if it will be enough?
Will someone explain the whole "amp" requirement please. The graphics card says it needs 28 Amps?

It's enough wattage to run those cards , but I wouldn't risk my components with a low quality PSU.

How many watts would i need? Because i can get a 500W Corsair PSU for only £10 more?
Would that do the trick?

That is a much better choice. Corsair would be a better fit.

It is indeed. Also i thing the 7870 requires 2x 6 pin connectors for power? Will the corsair supply this?
