  2. i would go with asus
  3. Ok thanx for ur reply. will this card fit in coolermaster haf 932 amd edition?
  4. of course.
  5. Al right thanx guys. One more question :D . Which one is better psu for this card coolermaster gx 750 w or corsair gs 700 w.
  6. a decent 500W supply would be plenty, unless you plan to crossfire later. and if you plan to crossfire later get a 7850. Honestly the 7850s a better choice period.

    Stay away from cooler master PSUs their low to mid range stuff is total junk
  7. either of them, but if you won't crossfire it in a future then get this
    corsair enthusaist tx550w it's enough

    Go look at professional reviews. their extreme power plus series is horrendous and will burn out before hitting its rated wattage. coolermaster is well know for making bad PSUs and mislabling them. on the high end they can be OK. I have a high end well reviewed coolermaster. But you can't compare them to quality brands like corsair, and you can't trust any coolermaster PSU without checking reviews. it may take your whole system with it. Its well known they aren't to be trusted with PSUs
