Hey peeps i've now got a Corsair AX860 and my spec is:

GTX670

i5 3570k

8GB Ram

Looking for a GTX 870 when released but apparently 600w was enough for my setup.. does it matter that i'm using an 860? I really can't be bothered to send it back tbh unless highly recommended? thanks

As long as you have min PSU requirements you're good to go

AX 860 is more then enough to any single gpu setup let alone most SLI setups too.

Okay thanks, i didnt know tbh.. i bought it more for future proof but my specs recommend a 600w so should be all good! :)

Hello.

I bought too the AX860 too for being the best PSU under $200.

A 600watt good quality PSU would have no problem powering any single GPU.

If you have problem with $$ send it back and take one 600-700watt with $100. (like a good HX650 or a gold XFX maybe...)

But if you don't have problem spending more $$ for getting the best, keep it :).
