  1. Jip, perfectly enough. :D
  2. Best answer
    I have a 520W Seasonic and it handles an overclocked i5 and 660ti without a problem. I probably could get by on 450W. But a little headroom is nice. The 660ti is close to the 7950 Boost but the Boost uses a little more.

    I'd suggest scrapping the fan controller. Just use the mobo utility software and adjust the fan speeds there. I do this every time I game and my temps are excellent. CPU and GPU never break 65C.
  3. i see, ill stick with 520w then. Thanks a lot for your quick answers :D

    I'm also getting this Seasonic M12II 520W power supply to meet the requirement of my second-hand Radeon HD 6850. The card spec says it required "500W or greater" and my current power supply was only 420W (Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 460).

    Are you running your games fine? Do you have problem using this power supply and your HD 7950 card?

    U shouldn't post on others posts. Quick answer, and that's it, 520W is plenty for a 7950.
