Absolutively! i think as long as you have the right connectors, so how much is cheap?
I think you could actually.

My friend runs a PhenomII 920 and crossfired 3870s off that same PSU; so if the power draw for a GTX295 is only double a 3870 then you should be fine.
lets say >£100 <£150

and sweet
i have a 6 + 6 + a little 2 pin to make an 8. is that enough because i could get one of those molex adapters?

Well if your getting it for cheap might as well get it and try it. If it doenst work then buy another psu. Its a nice card don't pass up on a deal. But yours is a 600w its not too far off from what it says it needs, I don't see why it wouldn't work.
should leave me enough money to buy a copy of crysis....
*evil laugh*
Q6600 at 3.2G. GTX295 is a 289w GPU but usually takes 240w on load so OCZ 600w is able to power it up but at edge.
I think the other issue is if he has 47a on this 12v rails, but I'm unsure of exact amp
you should be fine i have the same psu in another rig and its gr8.
