  1. Best answer
    Welcome to Tom's!

    The PSU has the recommended wattage and connectors for use with the GTX760 from a mid-tier maker. You could do a lot worse.

    Personally, I would want something in the 600-700 watt range, from Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PCP&C, Antec, BeQuiet, or Enermax.

    Good luck!
  2. I would upgrade to a more reliable unit.
  3. Unfortunately I couldn't find any professional review for this PSU, making it hard to give an opinion on it. I did find this thread on another forum though:

    So it seems this PSU isn't the best, but not the worst either, just average. 500-Watt + 2 x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors are required for the GTX-760 and the Hexa PSU meets that so you should be good.

    But as others mentioned, it's never a good idea to go cheap on a PSU, I know it's not as exciting as buying a video card, but the PSU is a vital component that gives power to all other components, so you don't want a cheap unit damaging something else. I look at the other parts in your build and they're all high end, so my advice would be next time for your PSU go with a brand that has a solid reputation like Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, XFX, to name a few.
  4. The 400w version did fair on johnnyguru.
