    Hi I am fairly new to all this computer building, infact this would be the first time ever that I am putting something into my machine. So I am a little worried that I might buy the wrong part for my motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev. 2.0).

    I basically just want to know if this motherboard can support a AMD radeon HD 7950. If not what is a powerful graphics card that it would support.

    Sorry if this is a really dum question.

    In my opinion, for a single card a good quality 650w PSU should be fine.

    I find this site useful to give you an idea of the power needs of your system:

    Don't take the answer it gives as exact, but its useful as a guide, I usually look at the recommended wattage then go to the next one up thats available. Again, always get a quality unit.
