    Open the PC up and look for a sticker on the PSU that has the specs.

    That Seasonic is your current PSU? If yes you can power any single GPU/CPU combo ATM.

    What do you mean by bottom placed design? You can put a PSU whatever you want and if your case is desogned with a PSU at the bottom of the case then yes you can put a PSU there. :)

    Yeah, I fried 3 brand new power supplies because they were "top-mount" units and I mounted them on the bottom, all because the manual didn't specify orientation. Some problem with gravity vs airflow, I guess. Now I know better, and I always look up the orientation specs on the "PSU Orientation Database" (members only). Just let me know the model number of the PSU you're considering, and I'll look it up for you.
    P.S. the above statement is brought to you by "Sarcastic Statements for Answering Newbie Posts", a non-profit organization.

    Hai there, I'm looking to become a member, is that the standard $9.99 per month or do I have to pay an extra premium for new members?

    Since you'll only be the 2nd member, and our budget is $10,000/year, we'll have to charge you $5000. Here's a bonus fact; the new Corsair 1500i is a bottom mount PSU, but an adapter is available for top mounting...
