Hi

I currently have the below setup:

Asus Maximus V Gene IZ77
Intel I7 3770K
2 x 4GB Corsair Vengeance
Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler
Sapphire HD5850 1GB Game Edition
Corsair HX520W PSU
4 x 1TB Sata Drives
Antec Nine Hundred Two Ultimate Gaming Tower (big 250mm top fan)

I'm planning on replacing my old card with a Gigabyte 3GB HD7950, I've noticed the power requirement for the HD7950 is 500W (HD5850 requires 500W too)

My question is will my PSU be enough? till thus far I haven't had any problems running with my old card, and I will not be doing crossfire in the future.

Thanks

Best solution

it is more than enough ... you are using only 450 watts actually
