  1. Guys, I'm 99% sure it's alright, but here's the question:

    Will this GPU work with either these PSUs? PSU-1 PSU-2
    How do I know if the 6-pin PCI Express connector is the required 75W?

    Which PSU would you recomend?

    I'd go Corsair. They're proven good PSUs.

    I'd go with the corsair, they're one of the best power supply manufacturers out there. I'm fairly sure that any modern power supply is going to be fully compatible with any modern graphics card.

    Avoid the OCZ Modstream PSUs at all costs, they are low quality.

    All 6-pin connectors are rated for 75W and usually can carry a lot more. Since your GPU only requires one 6 pin connector almost any PSU will be compatible (but still go for a good quality one though).

    I had no idea about this.
    Nice information, thanks.

    As LukeDJ and St1ckM4n mentioned above, Corsair is the way to go. I myself have one in my machine.
    I'll probably come back with more questions like this, I'm planning this rig for my sister.
    Thanks again guys.
