I'm build a gaming rig with a Gigabyte Radeon 7970 and need a high watt PSU. I really want to keep it under 70 so if you could do that I would appreciate it.

Seasonic M12II 620w 80+ Bronze
or the same psu but with S12II.

M12II = modular
the other is not but it's the same psu all-around.

It doesn't get better under 70$, I swear. Seasonic is the best PSU manufacturer around for consumer based PSUs and look at that discount! 37 dollars? It is a steal.

Good effiency, strong 12v rail, great reliablity and a long warranty. It is a safe buy.

As long as he won't SLI or crossfire, he'll be fine with a 600w.

True, but why not have the best of both worlds? As said, he can get a SeaSonic-made 750w for less than comparable-quality 550, 620, and 650w PSUs.

According to Tomshardware review HD 7970 maximum power consumption is 301 Watt.

600W may be sufficient, depend on all other components. please post your full spec.

Pc part picker says the estimated wattage is 474 so ill be safe with 530+
