More about power supply
  1. A Corsair 850W is More than damn enough
  2. A Seasonic X-850 will be more than capable of handling the power with comfortable temperatures.
  3. Are you guys sure that with FOUR SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 6GB in QUAD CROSSFIRE , 850w is enough ??
  4. You need this type of power for QUAD.

    I would agree with your 1500 Watt choice for four Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition cards and your Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition system especially if any overclocking is being contemplated.
