So recently I was reading some threads about PSU's, and a lot of people are saying if you have a cheap corsair PSU which I do (CX 750M) You can risk damaging your GPU. Is this true? And If it is what PSU should I get to replace mine? I just bought my 980 Ti its about a month old and I don't want to risk damaging it.

Thanks for the help

System Power Supply Requirements for a single EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC
a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater system power supply is recommended. (Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core i7 3.2GHz 130 Watt TDP processor.) Your i5-4690 is an 84 Watt TDP processor.
the system power supply must also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater (for your system 33 Amps or greater would be recommended)
the system power supply should also have at least one 75-Watt 6-pin and one 150-Watt 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.
