I thought that too, but that must be for just one of the cores. I thought maybe newegg made a mistake on their specifications but the hd 7990's webpage also lists750w as a requirement.

That's to make sure people who use cheap PSUs won't complain when they sit their house on fire...
The Silverstone PSU is of good quality and should be up to the task! thumb.gif

they over list the requirements because they are afaid you are going to hook it up to a pos oem psu. a quality psu, like the Silverstone, will be fine.

yes, its only uses 375w

Alright, if y'all think it won't be a problem I'll trust ya. I certainly appreciate the help! Any advice on cooling? I've never done water cooling so a custom loop is out of the question for now. I'd prefer to stick with air, but an AIO would be considered.

BUT, I don't think having a non blower cooler will be fun. I'd be afraid of the heat and lack of airflow. If you have another non-blower style card try it in the case and compare it to a regular sized case. then see if you want to step up to th 7990. My 690 can hit 90c when stressing it. the outer core gets hoter because of lack of circulation.

Alright, due to the heat issue I've decided I'm going mATX. I've got everything worked out part wise except the case. My current thoughts are the FT03 or the PC-V354. These are still fairly small for mATX, and I'd like to keep it that way. However, do y'all think it would be necessary to step up to a larger case like the PC-A04 or the 350D? I'll be using the HD 7990, just to put things in perspective.
