Is it this one? -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

I see two 24A +12V rails so you as the builder must be pretty advanced. That is, you would know to not overload one or the other +12V rail. Most folk opt for a larger single rail but that's your choice as the builder.

Read http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1663902/sapphire-100358l-upgrade.html where they note the 7790 is about the same price (you check!) and with the move to a single rail should keep you out of trouble.
