Hello, so i would like to get a new video card probaly a 7950 or 7870. But amd says it recommends 500w minimum, so would 550w be enough to safely power either of these gpus?
Here's my specs: intel 3570k( not currently overclocked) gigabyte ga-z777x-ud3h motherboard western digital caviar black 1 tb hard drive 1 dvd/cd drive 8 gb of g.skill ripjaws ram xfx 550w bronze plus certified psu

More aboutwill 550w
Yes. It will be plenty as AMD overestimates the power needed. I would recommend the 7870 LE as a middle ground between those two while providing the best price/performance.
