Thanks.

CM PSUs are known to have high failure rates and arguably mediocre performance. 850w is also overkill especially for a single GPU unit. Get 500-550w instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l adam_09 November 27, 2012 4:44:30 AM Hi excella1221, Thanks for the advice.. may consider your suggestion. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
