Hello guys 1st post here. Right, so basically I've come across an opportunity to get a hold of a Cooler Master Silent Pro 600W modular for cheap and since it has great reviews on newegg I'd like to know if it can run a Gigabyte 6950 (factory OC) appropriately and without any worries of malfunction.
Here are the links to both said products:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'll add this extra system information in case it helps:
Phenom 2 x4 955
2x2 GB 1600mhz GSkill RAM
Gigabyte 880GA
1x WD 500gb 7200rpm

Nothing is overclocked by my hand nor I plan on doing it either. I also have zero plans of crossfiring it or even upgrading any component in the near future.

In case this psu doesn't work, kindly please recommend me the cheapest or least expensive one that does the job without worries and lets me enjoy my 250$ video card to its full extent.

Thanks in advance :)

For a system running a single Radeon HD 6950 graphics cards a power supply with a minimum of 500 Watts or greater, with a minimum +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and with at least two 6-pin PCI-e Supplementary Power Connectors is recommended.

The Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 (RS-600-AMBA-D3) power supply unit, with its +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and its two 6+2 pin PCI-e Supplementary Power Connectors, is enough to meet the requirements.

Yes it will handle beautifully, don't worry about your PSU. It can even handle a Radeon HD 6970 ;)
