    Easy there, your exaggerating a little bit. A Seasonic 460 watt platinum efficiency PSU only has 38 amps on the 12v rail, the 780ti I have (EVGA GTX 780ti SC ACX) requires 42 amps.

    It will run fine, but you might see some minor bottlenecking in certain games, which could be solved by pushing up the clocks on your CPU.



    i5 not i7. It works fine. I would not feel comfortable running one of these rigs, but it works. And I don't think the 270x uses more power than a 780 ti. The 520w seasonic will be enough for the OP.

    And the RM series is far from brilliant as far as build quality.

    So for my uses, I could not run a 4560k OC'ed to 4.4ghz and a 780ti with that PSU. You see, I number crunch with my CPU, and I occasionally game at the same time. If I try to play a game with my CPU at full load, I could draw well over 500 watts going by what that video showed. So thank you for proving my point. :toast:
