Think of it this way, if you go buy Nvidia's specs for powering a GTX295, they call for a 680watt psu, xx amperage. So by Nvidias terms, your actually underpowering your 295, BUT YOUR NOT! Your corsair (solid performer) has 1 12v rail with plenty of juice. I'll never understand the reasoning behind some people (not you) buy $2000 worth of parts for there PC, and power it with a $70 chinatech 1 jiggawatt PSU, that is utter ****......
This reminds me of when I used to tell my dipsh!t buddies about car audio amplification.

'Why duz i want to spend $400 on a 75 watt Fosgate, when I can get a 1200 watt amp for $39.00 at the flea market. lol
