Hey! I have been googling, and reading for the past 3 hours, and maybe im looking in the wrong places but i haven't been able to answer my question, so now i am here to ask you wonderful people!

I have an Antec BP550 Plus, And i'm wondering if i can run a EVGA 760 SC.

here is a link for my PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

The rest of my specs are as follows:
MOBO: ASUS p8z68-mPRO
Soundcard: Soundblaster Z
Fans: 4 120mm fans, and one stock CPU fan
CPU: I5 - 2400 Sandy Bridge
Ram: 2 4 gig DDR3
HDD: Seagate 1TB
SSD: 128 Samsung 840 PRO

There are no USB devices that draw power except for my Mouse and Keyboard

P.S. it says it has 1 8-pin , but i don't see an 8-pin on the PSU?

if that is all you are running 550 should be ok. If you have power issues might want to upgrade to like a 750 or something just to have the extra juice incase you need it .

You should be okay with this, though if you overclock a lot, then maybe something a little beefier,
See here for specs on Antec: (Page 4)

http://www.antec.com/pdf/manuals/BP550_PLUS_manual_EN.p...

and for power consuption here:

which recommends minimum 550W PSU.

thanks for the replies! i am considering this, if i absolutely have to upgrade my PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

The main reason being, i am not sure if the Antec PSU can deliver the 30A needed for the 760, i read in different places that it will provide 32A, but i am not sure if it would be a good idea to max out a PSU like that

If you can afford it, it would give you more headroom. Also it it good to upgrade PSU when upgrading GPU if the PSU is older and been used a lot - due to degradation of the components(capacitors).
