Hello! My Specs are:

Coolermaster HAF 922
i7 2600k @ 3.4GHZ
16GB Ram
Antec HCG 750w PSU
1TB (SATA 6, 7200 RPM)
120GB OCZ Vertex 3 (for windows 7)
MSI Z68MA-ED55 (B3) motherboard

Can I run a single 670 with my build (is the power supply good enough)?

Also, my friend has:

Corsair White Graphite Series 600t
i5 2500k
8GB Ram
Antec HCG 750w PSU
Asus p8z68-v motherboard

Can he run a single 670 with his build as well? Thank You!!!

Are you talking about the 670 graphics card? If so yes you should have plenty of power for that with a 750 watt! You really only need better if you are gonna do dual SLI.

I just looked up that specific model, it looks like it takes 170 watts of power peaked (but I could be wrong but I seen in on multiple sites). But you should still be fine either way. Your friends PC should be okay as well with 750 watts.

Shoot, I am running 2 560ti's in SLI, 3 hard drives, and Passport backup drive, 4 case fans with lighting, and 2 dvd drives in my build on a 750 watt Corsair PSU, and all has been working perfectly for over a year.
