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.

After reading the specs i noticed that it says 750 for cross-fire so if i am using one 650 should be ok right

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.
