More about 550w good enough
  1. It is sufficient. A system with a single GTX 670 requires a PSU with at least 38A on the 12V rails and two 75w 6-pin PCIe power connectors. A system running a single GTX670 and a highly overclocked, power-hungry i7 965 used 279W at full load: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-670-review/8
    The GPU wasn't OCed, but you probably won't hit 350W even with OCs on the GPU/CPU. You're won't hit the power consumption of the i7 they're using in the review. Combine that with a moderate-high OC on the GPU and 350W isn't likely.
  2. As Rugger said, it'll do.
  3. Rugger is dead on, it will do just fine.
  4. rugger is completely wrong! diet dr.pepper does taste like regular dr. pepper!

    he is right about that PSU. more then enough power for your stated set up
  5. thanks guys :) How do i select best answer?
  6. It should be on the bottom right of the answer right where the reply to button is; if you didn't set up the thread as a question, then there won't be a BA button.
  7. I wouldn't buy it after reading those reviews. Must have been a bad batch or something.

    just 5 feedbacks so its not going to reveal anything and people with negative comments will always post more often. anantech, hardwaresecrets, and jonnygur all gave the PSU very good reviews. I have the 650w version and have no issues with it all.
