  1. Yes, it will be fine.
  2. that would be fine for your system.

    throw some lights in there too and make it flashy, you will have plenty of power left
  3. looks fine to me. the 6790 isn't a particularly power hungry card.
  4. thanks gonna buy 6790 tomorrow.
  5. you're fine with that card; your system will still be under 350 watts total. but please know that your PSU isn't the greatest and pushing over 400 watts might not be a happy experience
