hey guys i will be getting the 780ti soon and i was wondering if i will damage my system if i run a 780ti on a 12v 40amp rail (CX600 psu) i do NOT have overclocked CPU , only 4 fans , no SSD one single HDD and that's about it really.... Would i be good to go ? btw they RECOMMAND 42amps on 12v for the 780ti but would 2amps hurt ?

It would be a bad idea to run a nice card like that on a cheap CX600 , as they tend to fail under stress.

It might run it for a little while but it will fail quickly.

Here's a great deal on a 650w Seasonic:

Agree with Blackbird. EVGA requires a 42A rail and the CX series is not a good model. XFX, EVGA, or Seasonic is your best bet for PSU brands.
