Hi Guys, I recently bought a SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 OC (UEFI), and it says it requires a 750w PSU, I have a 600w PS

Well if it tells you that you need a 750watt psu and you have a 600watt psu, you should probably consider getting a 750watt psu.

That doesn't really matter if the GPU is having issues. What really matters is the amperage being put on the 12V rail. If you have something like only 30 amps, you will have problems with a graphics card while most other components wouldn't run into issues. Just to be safe though, I would get a 750 watt psu that has a high amperage on the rail such as 40 - 50 amps.

Well, in case you don't understand my poor english, let me write it again for you "if it really delivers 600W on the 12V rail", or 50A.
