  1. 750 watts is enough but 800 or more is recommended.
  2. Best answer
    like the previous reply, I would also say a 750W or higher would be ok. if you want to be future proof choose maybe 1000W
  3. I've looked at the recommended wattage for the gpu and they say it uses 600 watts
  4. If you already bought the RM 750 PSU, you will be fine. Don't worry about it.
    If you haven't yet, there are better options. For single gpu setups, a 650w power supply is plenty. Get power supplies from well-known brands (Antec, Corsair HX, AX series, Seasonic or XFX)
