Hello, I currently own a Xigmatek 600W PSU and am wanting to upgrade my graphics card to the Radeon 7970 3GB. On the AMD website, under PC specifications, it states I will require a '500W (or greater) power supply with one 150W 8-pin PCI Express power connector and one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended'. I have looked all over the web to find out whether my current PSU does have the requirements, but have been unable to find out. Even from the Xigmatek website itself! I was hoping someone could give me an aswer here.
It should be, but you will need to check if your PSU has the correct connectors needed, as you have not given a specific model number. You can use this website to give you a rough idea of the power that your system will consume:
