Tags: Power Supplies AMD Components Product Last response: October 22, 2012 8:07 PM in Components Share TheRealist October 22, 2012 3:48:38 PM Hi guys, new here, i though i'd ask a questions as many of the posts here are answered correctly. So i am buying an OCZ StealthxStream 500W PSU with these specs: AMD Phenom II X4 965BE AMD 7950 2x4GB DDR3 ASUS M5A78L-M I've seen many people who have GTX 670 w/ I5's using 500w PSU's. Will the PSU run the PC without any problems? Thanks.

For two video cards no.
