PSU Problems with Graphics card

Although this a top card I'm having doubts with my New graphics card I had for a few days which is this click here

And my PSU is this click here

Do you think this PSU is enough to handle this card??

It might not be. The Overclockers page says min power supply 500w, 600w recommended.

What problems??

One point to note that Colin mentioned - Power Supply - BFG state that you require at least a 475w PSU with a combined 32A rating. (Make sure you've got 2 PCI-E connectors also - or 4 if you're going SLI) The Hiper Type R 580w supply that Colin was using only has a combined amp rating of 30A. This was most likely the cause of his problems. So you don't need to go mad and get a 1000w PSU. I have an Antec 550w TruePower Trio and it's more than adequate - as the three 12v lines give a combined 42A rating.

Oh Well Something like this would do the trick

It probably would, but it still doesn't say what the combined rating of the 4 12v lines is. Do Hiper have more detailed specs available anywhere?

OK, clicked on the Hiper link and it looks like it's 4 x 12v rails each up to 16A, so presumably 64A combined which should be enough.

The way I see things here its running fine at the moment I don't know anyone who has the same PSU and Graphics card I have??

Yeah I agree also
