all of the cards listed should pose no issues power wise with the stock 850 watt supply, the 1060 card can draw 120 watts

 

with the 1050 series not even needing a aux pwr connection as they are under 75 watts, and powered directly by the pci-e bus

I appreciate the response. Thanks. My PSU has got only one 12A rail, do I need to use an aux power line for 1060/70/80? can you pls forward me to an online resource how to do it? also, is it wise to do so?

again, please download the z800 "service manual" and read it

 

the z800 has a multirail type power supply not a single rail, the supply is a custom unit that only fits the z800

 

and depending on the power supply  two or three six pin GPU aux connectors

 

the stock 850 watt has two gpu aux

 

the optional 1250 watt has three aux
