Just wanted a bit of advice really. I have bought a Radeon 7960 and need to get a better PSU so that I can use this card. I did have a 850w cheapo pile of turd but as soon as the card started doing heavy workloads the whole thing would shut off. Needless to say this was a silly idea on my part of buy a unreliable PSU.
I was thinking of getting a Akasa Venom 750W for this card, going on my specs below would this work do you think?
AMD FX4100 - 3.6GHZ (Overclocked to 4.5Ghz)
X1 SATA drive
X1 Stick of DDR3 RAM
I've made a few silly mistakes buying cheap PSU's in the past and I would hope this card will work OK under load.
Thank you. RHT's recommendation vice AMD. Nice quick reference for GPUs...I already use them for their PSU DB and will add that for the GPU data.
@ Unixm: A system with a single HD6970 requires a 550W PSU with 34A on the 12V rails and one 75W 6-pin PCIe power connector and one 150W 8-pin PCIe power connector. The XFX Core 550W has 444A on the 12V rail and is electrically sufficent for your build; it also has sufficient PCIe power connectors for your build (one 6-pin and one 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors). At 50 quid it is also less expensive than the Akasa while being a higher quality PSU with a longer warranty; I highly recommend it.
