For example what cpu you have and how much amps on 12v rail for PSU. If it has a dual 12v rail it will do just fine. | Report abuse Reply to rezervesizeja MadRetch January 18, 2013 10:21:23 AM ample i have 7870 with 550w oh but it has to be good as he said above but you should be fine | Report abuse Reply to MadRetch sarj313 January 18, 2013 3:02:14 PM rezervesizeja said:If you had posted the rest of you system specs we could tell you more.

I got the Intel i3 2120 @ 3.30 GHz. 2 HDD one is 500gb and the other is 350gb . no dvd rom and gonna buy a 90 or 120 SSD . did i miss anything ? Oh and the rail thing on the psu, i did some research and from where i purchased it they mentioned this : Rail: Quad rail (18A/18A/18A/18A) And the Energon site mentioned this : With 4 x Molex, 4 x SATA and 1 x PCI-E 6 pin power supply is equipped for modern systems optimally. The 4 x 12V rails provide optimum distribution of 12V power to all connected devices. Im not that good with psu's but i think it's good right ? | Report abuse Reply to sarj313 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>7850 OC Video Card work with a Energon 550W psu?> Related ressources: ForumIs my 7850 faulty ForumI5-3570 / Radeon 7850 build, NEED PSU HELP!
