If you are looking to upgrade your power supply and aren't sure what the minimum is or what options you might have, EVGA has a questionnaire to help you out (ostensibly to sell you something, of course) http://www.evga.com/power-meter/ after you complete the EVGA questionnaire, you'll get a discount coupon to use if you buy a power supply through EVGA's website. Here's something to keep in mind - After I purchased my GTX970 SSC and registered it, I got a 50% off coupon from EVGA to use when buying an EVGA power supply AND an EVGA mouse. I got the 850 G2 power supply and their X10 Torq mouse for $119 total cost, free shipping, to me after discount. here's their current B-stock for 900-series cards
Gremlich posted a topic in HardwareEVGA has this over on their website - a "Power Meter" that can help you determine just how much power you should be buying, at a minimum, when considering a power supply. I tried it out to see if my 750W was sufficient to run a GTX970 SSC, an FX-8350, 970 chipset, 16 GB DDR3 1600 RAM, 2 SSDs and 3 HDD of storage. Of course, it's all to sell you a power supply, but, FWiW, after going through the questionnaire, I got a 20% off coupon to get an EVGA power supply (except b-stock) from their website rated between 600W and 750W. You can even refine your query by Efficiency (gold, bronze) and series as well. So, my current rig has the power it needs.
