Its more than enough. If you don't plan on having an SLI system, you probably can lower the psu down a little bit. Maybe 600 or 650w.

I´ve got an RM1000 running for a few weeks now and it seems pretty good.

Some say that Corsair uses more budget components to build the RM series but I´ve had a Ax760i - which is supposed to inhibit premium components - after just two months.

Some of the lots of the RM750 and 850 have thermal issues , the RM series isn't that great.

Hi - The answer is yes & no. Yes, it is good enough for a gaming rig, but I wouldn't use it if I could
afford a better unit. As already mentioned the original RM750's & RM850's had issues and failed
Hardocp's lab testing.

Corsair has since had them modified, but they are using lower quality caps in the secondary filtering
stage, which would be understandable in the CX series. But, the RM series is positioned as a step up
series, yet using budget level caps.
