  1. Best answer
    The short answer is, yes you should be fine. You'll want to check the physical dimensions of the specific 780 that you're getting to make sure it will fit in the case though. The RAM and CPU are plenty and the PSU is more than enough (in fact if it's not too late to return it and money is a concern, you could get a smaller and cheaper PSU that would work just as well). I don't know what motherboard comes with that system, but if you can run the GTX 650 on it, you can run a 780 on it, again providing there's enough physical space for it. You can buy that system with a 780 stock, so I don't think it will be an issue.
  2. you can install a gtx 780 without any problem ....take the msi gpu because they are not too big and very good gpu
    but i still suggest you the new gtx 780 ti because a lot better and not much expensive

    8 gb ddr3 dual channel are enough for gaming and maybe tight for video editing or cfd
  3. Yes to RM850 and GTX 780. Check length of GTX 780 video card for fit.
  4. I have bought a new case as well with better air flow and ventilation corsair graphite 760t i think it has enough space just from looking at this beast :) unfortunately here in Greece gtx780ti is much more expensive about 100 euro more my gtx is this http://www.msystems.gr/index.php?category=1623&product=16698 is this asus variant any good?
  5. It's very good. There are a couple of cards in the same bracket that have marginally better performance, but build quality is excellent, it overclocks well, and cools better than most without assaulting your ears. You'll like it.
  6. ASUS is good. Get it since it is cheaper.
  7. Thank you very much guys now i feel better knowing i didn't screw it up :) something last i read corsair rm series has some issues with the capacitors do you think my rig will be ok? or do i need to try and return it back?
  8. I have an RM 750 running dual GTX 770s and have had no issues - have been very happy with it. There were a number of issues with the RM series when it was released, but Corsair seems to have addressed them. In my opinion, I think you'll be fine.

    That being said, the capacitors in the RM series are not the best. If you want better component quality, find a SeaSonic, XFX, Antec, or Corsair HX or AX series. None of them have unblemished records, but they're all considered top of the line.

    It should be okay to power that 780 but take note that psu does use low quality Ltec caps. If you can return it for a full refund do so and get a higher quality unit (preferably Seasonic made) else if you cant return it don't waste money buying another one and just use this for now

    That psu is not bad by any means and does stay in spec but it does have low quality caps which is the only negative
  10. Is there cost to return the RM750? If not, check prices on EVGA G2 750, XFX 750, Antec HCG 750 and Seasonic 750. The RM750 is good too but RM prices are too high.
  11. I cant get a full refund unfortunately the other psu from that store are not even in the psu tier list that i saw here ,i don't know if it counts that much but at least its code starts as 1351 so i shouldn't have the thermal issue .

    Yes, that thermal issue should be solved, only with serial numbers <1341 should have that problem.

    I think that unit should be usable and if you cant get a refund don't waste money on another one
  13. Use the RM750 =)
