I have Thermaltake TR2 600w (TR2-600NL2NH). 12V1 is 32A and 12v2 is 24A. Can my PSU handle GTX 780 EVGA FTW? I have 3570K at 4.5 ghz, 8gbs of ram, SSD and HDD.

The card recommends 12v rail to have 42amps.

I cannot find one good thing written about this psu. The 780 is a fairly demanding gpu - I would consider a better psu.

I already have this PSU and have been using it for years without an issue. I just don't want to waste money on PSU if I don't need one.

SeaSonic will bring you quality and efficiency. Choose something like these PSUs with 600W or more, check the datasheet for 12v rail amps: http://www.seasonic.com/product/pc_atx.jsp

You do need a better PSU for that card if you don't want to risk your computer smoking.

Hmmm...What do you guys think of RM 750? I will be buying my gpu and psu from my local fry's not internet, because of hassles if I get defective items.

Corsair RM 750 is a great choice!

Just a little update: I got the Corsair RM 750, and I didn't have any problems with the psu.
