Default Re: New graphic card, enough power?

OP: Where are you located? You could always go to ebay and tick the international shipping option in your search. You'll find better prices there I bet.
a quality 700w psu should be able to handle any single card system, my guess is that your psu wasn't up to snuff, also, those are actually decent prices on those psus, from what others have posted AU prices are much higher than here...

the Corsair 750HX also has one of the greatest Newegg reviews ever...

Pros: This velvet bag is simply amazing. It's so soft. It also comes with a free power supply in it that's pretty good too. But the bag, man, you gotta get one.

Cons: Velvet bag has no cons.

Other Thoughts: Velvet bag comes protected in styrofoam, inside a box, inside another box. 80plus.org says the free psu is 90% efficient at 50% loads, and minimum is 88% at 20% load. For a free modular PSU, that is amazing.
