    Default Is my current power supply sufficient

    I have a Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1000 watt power supply in my pc. I am thinking of upgrading my graphics card to AMD Radeon 295 X2 Dual GPU 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card. Will my current power supply be enough to power this graphics card and my pc? The power supply has one 80A 12V rail, and one 30A 5V rail and another 30A 3.3V rail plus two other minor rails. If my power supply is adequate will the PCI-E cables have to go in certain connectors as this unit has 6 pci-e connectors?

    NO OVERCLOCKING ON ANY CURRENT COMPONENT, and I don't plan to overclock in the future.
    Would be grateful for any suggestions you may have...

    No problem. 1KW is plenty.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards
