Hi Im a nooby to power supplys. I was wondering if the Powercool X-Viper 1050W was good enough to hook upto my 770 450w new card and If the PSU had all the cables I needed. Any responses will be appreciated.

My Graphics Card: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

The PSU I was going to order: http://www.ebuyer.com/566859-powercool-x-viper-1050w-80...

Thanks!

Does it come with all the cables I need to hook upto my card?

Also is the PSU good/reliable enough to run this card?

Is there any better PSU's you can recommend me for under £100 ?

Thanks

Well atm I have a 550w and my PC crashed and wouldn't display when I installed the 770 so I need to get a new PSU. You think only 100w more than what I had before is going to work ? Remember that the graphics card takes 450w on max load and I have a i7 980x so I'm not sure if 650w is enough!

980x = 226w maximum (Stock)
770 = 300w maximum (each)

226+ 300w = 526w
sli + 980x = 826w stock when OC you will hit 900w!

Maybe to your Original Post Question. 12volt rails are what the 6/8pin connectors are called. =I think
From a google search of "Powercool X-Viper 1050w" showed it had 4+4 pins and 6+2 pin connectors

I like this PSU for the GTX 770:

^900w should be enough.

If you are only going to have 1=770 and the usual components=MBoard, Cpu, 1=SSD, 1=HDD 1=Bluray/DVD
Then 800+watts PSU I would go with. Though if your thinking of a SLI then get a +1000w PSU.

I have been told that if your system needs 700watts...then get a 1000watt PSU or more.
Bigger, the better your system will run. =less energy consumption.
