Not sure, doesn't seem like a reliable brand to me. Although it's 700W, cheap brands tend to output a lot less than the specified wattage.

Without knowing the specs on the power supply it would be impossible to say for sure. Given that is a no-name in a bundle, I wouldnt count on it. You would need to know how many pcie connectors it has and the amps/rails breakdown.

Give us a link.

The PSU is not the component you want to be the weak link in your system.

Can provide make & model of PSU? Based on your post alone, I would not recommend it.

You want to stick with Antec, Corsair or PC Power&Cooling, if at all possible.
