I wouldn't count on it, not without knowing the full specs. If it as bad as the few links I can find about that make/brand of PSU, I wouldn't trust it to run a light bulb.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I haven't bought a "decent" power supply in the past 3 years that didn't come with 2 PCI-Express 6 pin power plugs.

That seems to be the general consensus.
Corsair is making a enthusiast series now that isn't horribly priced and are all silver or gold rated.

This is very nice - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
...and probably one of the most positively user reviewed items I've seen online.
It comes in a modular model too but the price difference is a little retarded on that.

To be perfectly honest, Im not sure Id trust it for anything.
Ive tried to find info on that PSU myself and could only find references to it. No specs, which is not a good sign.

You really need to look on the side of the power supply itself, and see what it says. Especialyy the +12V part.
Only then could we get a idea of what its capable of.

Basically, the fact its 800W means nothing.

Technically, you should have enough to power to run either of these cards easy.
But, 800W really doesdnt say much especially if it only has a sinlge PCI 6pin. I would certainly be looking at its lable on the side and see what amperages it lists.

I wouldn't use the PSU either. I'm running my GTX 570 on a Corsair HX620. It has more than enough power for this video card..and it also has 2 PCI Express power plugs.

If we cannot find any information on this PSU on the web....that would really concern me. Remember, it's powering everything in your PC.

attached herewith is the photo taken from the side panel of my PSU.

its Tommade ATX-850

now. analyzing the numbers

+12V1 +12V2 -12V +5V +3.3V +5VSB
--26A --23A --.8A -30A -30A ---3A
___________| 9.6W 150W 99W 15W

850W - 273.6W = 576.4W for the 12V rails.
576.4W / 12V = 48.0333A current on the 12V rails..
checking(though this method is wrong) . 26A+23A = 49A. 1A higher than the theoretical value.

will this one handle 560? 560Ti using molex to pcie connector?. or will it be able to run eVGA 550TI SC which the required wattage is 400W+
