    It will work fine, just make sure you update your bios when everything is up and running, and to have a good quality 600 watt psu.

    no, not at all, You could run your gt with it I suppose, but it needs 400 watts max by itself. I wouldnt try it though.

    Wattage is NOT the most important factor.

    You really should have made a new thread since this does not pertain in any sorts to the original post. But I'll help you anyways. XD

    Okay. The I Ball SMPS is a power supply correct? What wattage is it? How many volts are on the +12v rail? You can obtain this information by looking at the side panel of your power supply and beneath/beside/around the +12v reading there should be a number with amps beside it, or any abbreviation of amps.
