It's got a single 12v rail, which is hard to find at that price range, which puts out 40A (480Watts). I would expect it to be a pretty high quality unit, I've heard corsair PSUs recommended a lot as well. The 12V output should be sufficient to overclock both your card and CPU. | Report abuse ct1615 Graphics card Master July 2, 2012 9:52:03 PM 2fast4thetown_down said:okay what about this cheap 600 watt- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it's a solid budget PSU. it will do the job with no issue since you really won't break 300w total power while gaming CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz Motherboard: EVGA X79 SLI Chipset Drivers: Intel 220.127.116.112 | Report abuse ct1615 Graphics card Master July 2, 2012 9:54:53 PM djscribbles said: It's got a single 12v rail, which is hard to find at that price range, which puts out 40A (480Watts). huh? single or split rail has nothing to do with a quality unit and most junk PSU are single rail (not because they are single rail but because of cheap parts and/or lack of parts) | Report abuse Best solution rolli59 Graphics card Master July 2, 2012 9:55:43 PM Yes a great budget PSU! | Report abuse 2fast4thetown_down Graphics card Expert July 2, 2012 11:54:51 PM Best answer selected by 2fast4thetown_down. | Report abuse 2fast4thetown_down Graphics card Expert July 2, 2012 11:54:51 PM Sweet thanks!! | Report abuse Mousemonkey Graphics card Master July 2, 2012 11:59:45 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Radeon hd 7850 on a 550 watt psu> Related ressources: ForumWll a Radeon 7850 be safe to run on a 460w PSU ?
