It looks like it has more than 42 amps for the combined +12 volt rails so it should be enough. The question is though are you willing to risk the investment in the GTX on a no name PSU brand. As an example the Corsair TX 650 has better specs and is a quality unit. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
