  1. Is this your psu?http://www.coolermaster.com/service/support/model/RS-700-AMBA-D3/
    If so, it should be plenty. A 600W psu is enough for a 280x if you are not planning on crossfire.
  2. yes, this is it

    but i am bit confused, cause xfx site is telling the required is 750 w minimum, 800w recomended

    i am really confused
  3. Believe me, your psu is more than enough for that card. You might want to check out this discussion too:

    Just make sure your PSU has at least 30 amps on the 12v rail. I checked it, I think you have 50 amps on that rail, but you might want to double check that.

    A quality 600W PSU could easily handle this card, but I think manufacturers usually overestimate the PSU requirements, because not all 600W PSUs can handle that card, but pretty much all 750W PSUs can.
  4. thanks man
