  1. I wouldn't. Honestly, I wouldn't even power a GPU from it, let alone OC a GPU on it.

    Sentey are not the most reliable of brands (generally), they have the occasional one that's decent-ish, but still not great.

    Do you have a budget for a new PSU? Or would you just continue 'as is'?
  2. the requirement is just enuf for the r7 card, but the psu itself is not of the best quality...
  3. Best answer
    Yes, your psu is enough. On paper. Not in reality. Most all sentey are lower grade units that would be miracles if they actually lived up to their claims.

    While not a perfect representation, if you look at the load limits vrs claims, you'll get the idea.
