Hey all, my step up to a gtx 780 came today but I'm having issues. My set up is as follows:
i5 3570k @ 4.4ghz
16gb Ares Gskill ram @1866
As rock z77 extreme 4
2x WD Black 1tb HDD in raid 0
128gb toshiba q series pro ssd
Antec earth watts 750w PS
And I'm switching out my gtx 670 ftw for a gtx 780 acx
I installed the card and the computer posts to raid selection screen, but it just powers off after hat.... Could it be a power supply issue... I thought it might have been acting funny a couple of weeks ago but haven't had any serious issues. Could I be drawing too much power on startup? Is there something I needed to change about my mobo wiring now that this card uses a 8 and 6 pin? I used a 6+2 and a 6 pin from my PS, should I use their adapter instead? Help please! Thank you!

If I go to my local tigerdirect and grab a PSU should I chance 750w again? The store 25 mins from me has the RM750 while the store 55mins from me has the RM850.. I do like the corsair RM series but is it worth the extra drive for an extra 100w?
Ended up goin with a Thermaltake - SMART Series 850-Watt PSU from best buy for 140+ tax. Just got it home and installed and whatya know?! Success! I'm up and running; and while my steam and origin clients finish updating, I will be searching for the best deal on a quiet 850w + PSU online. I have 15 days to find a replacement
