First, here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/AlaxelPC/saved/4uzC

I was originally going for 780 Ti SLI, but opted for the 295X2 last minute. I've been reading up on this GPU's power requirements and found that the PSU must be capable of delivering 28 amps on each of two PCIe power connectors, with at least 50A in total. This is my first build, and all of this information about "rails" and such has left me really confused.

I see that the http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220p21000xr PSU is rated for 89 amps on a 12V rail. Does this mean I will be over the 50A requirement for the card and good to go?

Edit: fixed link

With over 1000 watts on that single rail, I would hope so. Any quality PSU over 800watts should work fine

I would get a Seasonic 750W of some sort :)
