  1. I would get an 850W just to be safe, especially when your going with 2 GTX 670's
  2. Get the Corsair TX850W. Better quality than XFX

    XFX is basically seasonic, which is the best psu manufacturer?
  4. The xfx 750 is plenty capable of handling sli 670's The tx850 is also a good choice. They are both of excellent quality.

    The TX850 Verison 2 is also made by Seasonic. Version 3 is made by CWT.

    Difference is , if the PSU dies and it's still under warranty, Corsair have legendary customer support so he'll have an easier life sorting it out. XFX have given people a lot of trouble in the past
  7. Stock you are looking at just over 500W for the system. OCing introduces a lot of uncertainty as voltages can be different for each part. 750W should cover it. 850W is fine if you want to go to excessive amounts.

    I really doubt it matters whatsoever. Antec, Corsair, Seasonic and XFX all have good PSUs, and it's highly unlikely they'll fail even under a solid amount of stress. An 850W PSU will handle the system fine, and customer support probably won't even need to be involved.

    Doesn't matter if they're " good " PSU's , the fact is that technology isn't perfect and can fail at one point in life. It's always to go with a brand with a better customer service, if they're all good PSU's then why choose the XFX over the Corsair which has better support?...Not really logical if you think about it.
  10. @dylan1016 I can attest to that being a fantastic PSU with a great warranty and fan-less operation.

  11. Wait, a 750 gold? You'll be fine.
