The wattage is fine. Systems tend not to use much wattage. A pretty demanding single card gaming rig may use 350 - 400 at load. I'm talking about power connections. That PSU should have them, I'd assume.

My old PSU, was a CX500M. It handled my FX 8320 oc'ed, and a HD 7850 oc'ed with no issues.

Card manufacturers tend to over estimate the suggested psu major, so there will be less chance of issues. Also, lesser no name PSUs tend to be way under powered. A 750w no name PSU, may be lucky to put out 350w. Corsair is a good PSU brand.

*If you get a 660, remember to keep a eye out for a good deal on a 760.

Asus 660 ($199)

Make sure to figure out which ones are suggested. Those are two of the better priced ones I saw. Hopefully, the prices aren't too far off in Canada.

Yeah this is why I got a Corsair PSU, it's actually quite well rated and it's full modular smile.gif
Yikes this is a lot of watts for a graphics card! I will check deals on Newegg, prices in Canada are pretty much even now, which is great compared to a few years ago!
Thanks for the infos smile.gif

Oh, they only need a single 6 pin connection. Nice. You should see my GPU. It's got 3 different cords hanging from it. Damned thing takes a 6 pin, and a 8 pin. The 6 pin is only one wire, but for the 8 pin wire, they included a converter, so two wires plug into it. Looks like it's on life support or something.

You're good. Your psu has a 6pin without a doubt, and you have more than enough wattage.

Lol yeah gotta love cables everywhere! biggrin.gif
I love this new PSU, I've never had a casing that has free space in it!

Yea, mines modular (TX850M), but it doesn't do much good since I need so many wires. I've outgrown my case. I do have 3 or 4 wires I'm not using, so, I guess that helps. I really need to take a fresh picture of the inside of my rig. I tried the last time I took it apart, but, all of the pictures ended up black. I can't find my digital camera to take a decent picture. Most likely for the best, it isn't nearly as neat looking as my current picture.

A single 6 pin isn't an issue though. That's one wire. You should have PCI power cables that are 6 pin, that split into a 4 / 2 pin.

I cut my OC back down to 4.5. It runs fine at 4.6, but, with FarCry 3, I had to kick the CPU fans up to balanced, from quiet. I prefer to keep them lower, and generate less heat. Once the summer comes back around, and I have the AC running 24/7, I'll move back up to 4.6. This computer room just gets too damned hot without AC, or it being really, really cold outside.

The lights were on in my computer room. Lol, you can still tell there are too many wires. I just don't have anything I can do with them now.



I could hide that white wire better by running it through the back, I think I have the space. What's the point though. I need more space for routing wires. biggrin.gif

One of my GPU power cables comes from the top. It was routed for use with my old GPU. the new ones, are too much for me to run through the back.

Yikes yes quite dark in there lol. You have a lot more things than I do! Hey if you want some cool air I can send them express to your place biggrin.gif
I will be fine with one extra 6-pin cable, there will still be plenty of space in the casing...it's a full 3 inches taller than my previous one!
How much power/temp is your GTX 780 pulling? This is a monster compared to my puny GT 630!

Yea, I started giving up on keeping my wires well managed when I got the fan controller. That large white wire is from my SD reader. I haven't allowed any of it to get in the way of good airflow, it's more of a cosmetic issue right now. I keep them all tied off, and bundled up, I just have no where to hide them. Also, I got tired of redoing my wires every time I added so much as a fan. I'm basically done now, my last upgrade will be 16gb of 1866 ram, no wires there. After that, there isn't much I can add, other than replacing my whole mobo, and CPU (no immediate plans for replacing CPU/mobo). Well, I'll add another data drive, but, I'll replace my current data drive when I do. Unless someone wants to give me a 780 they have laying around, I don't see myself going SLI with mine biggrin.gif.

When I add my ram, I'll see what can be done about my current wire layout. I don't have the space for running behind the mobo tray, but, I can most likely get them routed to be less of an eye sore. I mainly wanted to wait on that, until I was done.

my GPU temps depend on the game. Most games don't go past 55c, and <45c isn't uncommon. Something like FarCry 3, that can work it, 60 - 63c. It would be less however, if my room temps didn't get so high. One bonus of going overkill on a GPU, is it doesn't have to work as hard, assuming you're limiting its fps in some way.

Don't give up on wire management, keep working at it! Mine isn't 100% amazing but I'd call it decent. What sucks is that a molex Y adapter has to be run right against the side of PSU to get power to the NZXT LED's. The nasty bare red, black, and yellow wires annoy me frown.gif. Can't really do anything about it though, that's the only way to get power to the LED's

My issue was more that I was upgrading so much, that it was just too much extra work to fully run wires every time I did something. I mean, the only parts in my system which are the same as when I made it are the CPU, Ram, and HDD. I guess the case and cd, but, you know.

I've upgraded, in this order.

Added a Fan controller
Upgrade PSU
Upgrade Mobo / SSD
Added a SD card reader
Upgrade GPU
Upgrade Heatsink

Tons of fan change outs, and swaps during all of it. The fans are what did it. It was about the time it took me over 1 hour to add a fan that should of taken 10 min, that I said "F'this". I had to pull my system apart, just to add one fan, rework all kinds of wires, cut ties. Lots of unnecessary work. On top of that, you can't see inside of my case. I mean, come'on.

The backside of my mobo/case looks pretty nasty, yet somehow the side panel still fits pretty easily. And the 690 II Advanced doesn't have very much space back there either.

It's even more of a disaster right now because the two new Swiftech splitters are just hanging off, that's what I needed extra PWM extensions for which came in today. Just haven't got them hooked up yet.
