Solved

Need a PSU to support 7970 and maybe crossfire

I need a power supply that has 2x 8pin connectors for my GPU ( http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1157&pid=1463&lid=1# )
And also something that has enough wattage to be future and crossfire/sli proof.

I have been looking at this but find it kind of expensive. Anyone recommend a good PSU? My budget is around $100-$200

    Ugh.. What a pain, they don't accept paypal :/
  10. Id take the HX850 over the AX series....HX has better voltage stability, lower ripple and is cheaper.
