As per your Signature (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Sig.jpg) = NO

But generally for the card no problems ;)

:lol: forgot I took that off. Anyway CPU would be a AMD Phenom X4 II 965 Black Edition. Hopefully that shouldn't make to much difference. I think it was 125/45w to run.

It should be fine, a good PSU of 600W or more is ample for most single cards. I used both a cheap AcBel 650W and a decent silverstone 600W to run a single card with no issues, the silverstone was actually borderline for the SLI setup I currently have but for peace of mind I upgraded to an 850W corsair.

If you like themaltake http://www.thermaltake.com.au/Products/PowerSupply/TPX-675M/ToughpowerXT675W.aspx would be a better choice

It will probably work but it's cheap for a 700 Watt PSU. And Thermaltake have a history of selling overrated PSUs.

Even if it can do what it says on the label, the price is too low to expect high quality parts inside.

I'd go with something that has been reviewed, and where you know what the quality is before you buy it. Especially with the capacitors, they are what will determine how long the thing lasts usually. And if you don't want to keep buying new PSUs you should pay the extra a get a decent one to begin with.

Interesting enough, it doesnt state 12v rail amps, however it does have 6 and 8pin PCIe cable which means its good for 75wslot+75w6pin+150w8pin, so Id say its good for all GPU cards but 2 as they are the only ones outside PCI-SIG specs of 300w.....You should be fine, however reliability and efficiency should always be considered when choosing PSU...

It does, on the features page (not the specifications page, where you'd expect it)

Note that actual max power is 600 watt (even though the PSU is named as 700 watt)

The 700 watt rating is actually the peak power rating, only what the PSU can supply momentarily such as during system startup when power usage usually spikes due to drives spinning up etc.

Oh, LOL, that wasnt on the spec page?....anyway, plenty of amps there for 460 & any CPU combo!

or just get something decent like http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=14392

You shouldn't skimp on a PSU it's the heart of your PC and everything depends on it

That GS600 looks pretty good actually

Some internal photos are here: http://www1.oc.com.tw/forums/forumview.asp?id=5&msgid=680

Capacitors are Samxon brand which should be better than the Teapo which is likely in the Thermaltake.
