Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280x 3GB GDDR5 Tri-X OC with Boost (UEFI)


Jan 14, 2015
hi! i'm new here and these kind of things so please forgive me if i made a mistake posting this thread here etc, now... my question is is these a good card? i'm on a tight budget now so i can't afford a higher end cards, i'm in The Philippines where everything is expensive like crazy, and will a SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W 80+ Bronze enough to power it? thanks in advance.
That card can run any game . if the processor TDP is up to 125W , the PSU should be enough.

what processor do you have ?
If Intel i5 , it would be better . they draw up to 84/88W .

if the card is this , it should draw more power and needs two 8 pin power connectors , which that PSU doesnt have . But if Vapor-X , it needs one 6 pin and one 8 pin power connectors.
The seasonic S12II 620 is enough for any single R9 280X build.
Yes the psu has only one 6 and one 8 pin PCIE and the R9 280X vapor Trix needs 2 8pin. Whilst I don't recommend using the 8 pin adapter that come with your gpu, that is one option you can use to fit the second 8 pin slot on the R9 280X.
